BMW has finally made it official: the redesigned X1 Sport Activity Vehicle will be in U.S. showrooms by summer 2012. The redesigned X1 will make its American debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show.
The X1 has been long awaited to make its American debut since the German automaker announced its delay, due to high demand in the European market. Confirmed is the new TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine powering the BMW X1 with 245-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. We are still hoping that BMW will bring its X1 M35i xDrive to America.
Along with the X1 making its world debut at the New York Auto Show, will be the new M6 convertible. New York will also play host to the American debuts of the updated X6 M and 640i Gran Coupe.
The third generation M6 is powered by a new M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine with 560-hp with a seven-speed M-DCT transmission. The 6 Series Gran Coupe will also arrive early this summer to American dealerships.
