Our spies have sent us a new batch of photos with the second generation of the X6 ahead of its scheduled 2015 market release.

Get ready for a new coupe-fied X5 as BMW has been seen testing a new X6 around the Nürburgring in Germany. It’s not hard to imagine the car’s design after taking a look at the third-gen X5 and the X4 concept as the new X6 will combine styling cues found on the two X models. The headlights and taillights are likely to be borrowed from the X5 while the sloping roofline design will be mostly carried over from the X4 concept.

We expect the engine lineup to be borrowed from the X5 which means there will be a 4.4-liter V8 twin-turbo rated at 450 HP (331 kW), a six-cylinder 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo outputting 258 HP (190 kW) and a tri-turbo 3.0-liter 6-cylinder generating 381 HP (280 kW).

The new BMW X6 will be revealed towards the end of next year prior to reaching showrooms in the first part of 2015.
