A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Loading Comparison...


The BMW X6 illustrates the emergence and evolution of luxury crossover models over the past decade. Launched as an early 2009 model, it stood well apart from the usual squared-off, conventional-looking bodies with its coupe-like profile. Dubbed a Sports Activity Coupe despite its four doors, the hatchback X6 established the trend for tall, stylish vehicles topped with a sleek, sharply sloped roofline.

X6 was redesigned for the 2015 model year.

Little has changed for 2018, except for modest simplification of the options list. 2018 BMW X6 option packages (Premium, M Sport, Executive) are configured more like trim levels with the same designation. Trapezoidal tailpipes are standard on 35i models.

Two turbocharged engines remain available in regular X6 models. A 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder makes 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. Stepping up a notch is a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8, which develops 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet. Both engines mate with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard with the six-cylinder engine. All-wheel drive is standard with the V8, and optional for the six.

Topping the lineup is the performance-packed X6 M, packing a hopped-up version of the V8 that generates 567 horsepower and 553 pound-feet of torque. That’s enough to yield 4.0-second acceleration time to 60 mph.

With fine driving dynamics the rule, even the base six-cylinder X6 provides a polished driving experience, mixed with pleasure. Plenty of enticing options are available, but they add considerably to the X6’s price – especially when full option packages need to be purchased.

Largely because of low sales volume, the X6 has not been crash-tested by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The closely related X5 has earned good crash-test scores, led by a five-star rating from the federal agency, but they don’t necessarily demonstrate that an X6 would fare equally well, despite similar structure.

Like its X5 cousin, the X6 can be fitted with a broad range of safety and collision-avoidance technology. A rearview camera is standard, but most other safety features are extra-cost options. They include automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warning, adaptive headlights, night vision with pedestrian and animal detection, a head-up display, and surround-view camera, as well as a Parking Assistant.

Unlike the X5, the X6 isn’t offered in hybrid or diesel variants.


X6 sDrive35i ($62,700) has rear-wheel drive with the six-cylinder engine, leather upholstery, 19-inch alloy wheels, heated power front seats, and navigation with 10.2-inch screen. X6 xDrive35i ($65,000) has all-wheel drive. Premium Package adds keyless ignition, satellite radio, and wireless charging. The M Sport package provides a firmer suspension and heavier-bolstered seats. An Executive Package adds full LED headlights, soft-close doors, air conditioned seats, and Harman Kardon audio. CarPlay costs additional. (Prices are MSRP and do not include $995 destination charge.)

X6 xDrive50i ($77,450) substitutes the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.

X6 M ($104,100) features a 567-horsepower V8 engine, along with an adaptive sport suspension, 21-inch wheels, all-wheel drive, and 16-speaker Harman Kardon audio.


Few vehicles draw such contrasting visual impressions as the BMW X6. Not everyone falls for the lushly sloped-roof profile; but for those who do, it’s a truly distinctive-looking vehicle, even after a decade on the market. Somehow, BMW designers made this eye-catching, still-daring crossover look somewhat pudgy, but also slinky.

BMW established the basic pattern, which has since been adopted by several premium manufacturers. BMW also offers a smaller version: the fashionable X4, derived from the company’s compact, conventionally-looking X3.

Differences between the X5 and X6 are negligible when viewed from the front. Below the beltline, too, the X6 looks almost like a traditional crossover. Higher up, the difference becomes dramatic.


Classy as well as tastefully refined, the X6 cabin promises a comfortable ride for as many as five occupants, provided the back-seaters aren’t too tall. Only a glance at the profile is needed to realize that rear headroom has to be restricted.

Front passengers can expect comfortable seats with multiple adjustments, promising a fine view ahead. In back, not only is headroom constricted, but entry/exit isn’t so easy.

The cargo hold also has problems. Tall items might not fit, due to the sloping back windows. Cargo volume totals almost 27 cubic feet, but BMW’s traditional-looking X5 crossover holds about 9 more. Considering usable space rather than numerical volume, the difference is even greater.

Every X6 feels solidly, carefully assembled. BMW offers a broad choice of interior trim, including several types of wood and aluminum. Leather upholstery comes in several grades. Each version is fitted with abundant standard equipment.

Driving Impressions

Ride quality is firm, and the X6 suspension controls body motions well. The electronic steering doesn’t give the driver the road feel that BMWs of the past transmitted.

Each engine, including the base model’s six-cylinder, is strong and willing, promising stimulating performance. Admirably smooth, the 3.0-liter delivers sufficient thrust to satisfy most drivers.

Still, the twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 in the xDrive50i sends the pleasure quotient up a notch, helped by the prompt-shifting 8-speed transmission. Acceleration to 60 mph takes place in a brisk 4.7 seconds. Because the fashionable X6 tends to make a statement rather than merely provide lavish transportation, a V8 seems more appropriate for its mission, though gas mileage sinks significantly.

The X6 M delivers thunderous vigor when wanted, with its 567-horsepower V8 always waiting patiently for opportunities to leap into action. With its heftier anti-sway bars and special air suspension, the X6 M handles nearly as well as many lower-riding sports sedans.

Ranking as the most popular model, the six-cylinder xDrive35i is EPA-rated at 18/24 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. The rear-wheel-drive sDrive35i does a hair better, at 18/25/21 mpg. Despite its bountiful power, the X6M isn’t as thirsty as might be expected. Hardly frugal, though, it’s EPA-rated at 14/19 mpg City/Highway, or 16 mpg Combined. In all models, a stop/start system can shut the engine off at traffic lights.


The BMW X6 is satisfying to drive but may might not deliver quite as much motoring fun as its lush body suggests. Utility is somewhat limited by the design, but the cabin exudes a clearly upscale aura. No X6 falls short on either features or visual flair, amplified by a trio of strong engines. Inexpensive they are not, and adding options boosts the price into formidable territory.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
