he rumor mill just won’t stop churning when it comes to the BMW X8. For over a year, the word has been spreading that BMW is creating a new SUV that boosts the decadence factor over the X7. It’s rumored that the BMW X8 will be an extremely luxurious model with a bespoke finish, a feature that BMW lovers are particularly excited about. A new luxury SUV that’s created by one of the best, high-quality manufacturers on the market: of course people are buzzing about it!
What’s going on underneath the hood? Autocar recently stated that the M cars will have a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter engine. Mid-range models of the BMW X8 will have an inline-six 3.0 liter saving the V8 4.0 liter for the top-of-the-line model. While we have no concrete proof yet that this is going to happen, insiders have said that there is going to be something that every BMW lover will enjoy in this new luxury SUV. They also hope to entice customers who have never owned a BMW but who are looking for a luxury SUV to take a chance with BMW.
It’s also important to note that, unlike some companies, BMW is going to keep the manual gearbox and will also offer an automatic transmission. There is still some debate as to if the interior will have a third row of seats, although we do know it is planned to have a four-seat layout in the two front rows. We’re pretty sure that BMW will find some amazing success with this new luxury SUV.
With the same power and luxury that you’ve come to know from BMW, and a lot more room for families to enjoy, it’s sure to be a stand out in the SUV world.
