Motor Trend calls BMW X6 ‘pointless,’ makes it 2009 SUV of the Year Contender

Just a couple months ago (5 months to be exact), Motor Trend called the 2009 BMW X6 “pointless.” Well it seems like they had a change of heart and have made the X6 a contender for their 2009 SUV of the Year award.

Back in May, Motor Trend wondered whether deep down the BMW engineers, car guys all, thought the X6 a waste of their talent.” The magazine wrote: “You see, good as it is, the X6 is still a truck. A perfectly pointless truck.”

Well it doesn’t seem so pointless anymore. We’ll find out exactly what Motor Trend thinks of the X6 when they announced the winner on Oct 16th.
