The German manufacturer is working on the latest flagship SUV, which will be on sale for the 2019 BMW X8. Despite having a sloping roof line, rear passengers are given enough space and comfort. The interior is expected to be based on the new X7 and will be equipped with the latest technology. Under the hood we can expect a series of engines 6, 8 cylinders and X8 will operate on a completely new structure.
2019 BMW X8 engines and performance
It has not yet been officially confirmed, but the 2019 BMW X8 should be powered by a six-unit and eight-cylinder selection. Therefore, the only option could be the same engine as the BMW 640d 3.0-liter diesel engine. This device can generate 313 horsepower and can reach 62 km / h in less than 6 seconds. We can also expect a more powerful version. It is a 4.4-liter V-8 engine. This engine can make 450 horsepower, but it is less fuel efficient than the previous engine. The engines are likely to be coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
2019 BMW X8 Exterior design
The latest 2019 BMW X8 will be the flagship brand and should have a more coupe-like design, such as the smaller X4 and X6 models. It should also have a sloping roof line and will be more emphasized than other BMW sports cars. The front looks strong with a bold grid and slender headlights. It will also have sharp lines throughout the body, making it look stronger. The 2019 BMW X8 also runs on solid alloy wheels.
Speaking of the platform, the manufacturer is likely to combine elements of the standard chassis of the BMW CLAR with the aluminum platform of the Rolls-Royce Cullinan. With a combination of these platforms, the car manufacturer also managed to gain rigidity, but without gaining weight.
2019 BMW X8 Interior
The 2019 BMW X8 will have a spacious enough cabin in the cab, although it will have a sloping roofline. You will probably get a two-row configuration with four or five seats. So the back seat provides enough space, even for longer adults. The rear seats can be folded down, increasing the loading space. In terms of design, the 2019 BMW X8 should borrow a number of elements from the new X7. The dashboard is likely to have the same large infotainment system touch screen and a digital display on the instrument panel as the BMW X7.
Unfortunately, we still have no information about the equipment. But we can expect the latest technical jobs and many modern safety systems.
Release date and price
The new 2019 BMW X8 can be introduced sometime next year, possibly at the end of 2019. The price has not been announced yet, but we assume that its price could start at around $ 100,000.
