SAC; that’s BMW’s new term for its new BMW X6 – and that’s because it’s not really an SUV. When speculation on the BMW X6 first started, it was said to have a slanted roof line. Well now according to recent spy shots and these renderings from our friends over at CarMagazine, it is now confirmed that the new BMW X6 will be the Bavarian manufacturer’s oddest looking 4×4.
As you can see from the renderings, the BMW X6 is expected to have a pretty steep slanting roofline, close to that of that Mercedes-Benz CLS. Obviously as room in the backseat is dramatically reduced, there will be no third-row seating as with the BMW X5.
The BMW X6 concept is set to debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show in September with production to begin at BMW”s Spartanburg plant in South Carolina.
When the production version debuts in mid-2008, expect engine sizes to be similar to the BMW X5 with a 3.0 liter petrol and diesel, as well as a 4.8 liter V8 355 horsepower range topper.
