The official news from BMW suggests that a new generation of X6 is expected at the end of 2028, so 2025 will likely be a mid-cycle refresh. X6 will continue to run on a CLAR platform, which means it will support a variety of powertrains. That means that the new 2025 BMW X6 will come with a gasoline powertrain. The hybrid model will also be available. And we expect the X6 in a fully electric variant.
The X6 Future has unique styling, and the most unique part of that design was the unique sloped roof that offers this crossover ultimate sporty styling. Also, that is the biggest downside of this SUV because it offers less space on the back than its rivals.
The biggest changes we can expect for the upcoming 2025 BMW X6 will probably happen in the cockpit, and that will include a redesigned interior with a new infotainment system.

The interior that we will find in the new X6 will get an updated look with updated tech features. But as we mentioned before, the biggest change will include a new dual 13-inch digital display. One of which the driver will use as an instrument gauge, and one will be used for the entertainment system. Both displays will get updated car software that will include more software options for drivers and their passengers.
