Diesel-Powered BMW X6 M50d May Run 0-60 In 4.9 Seconds

Not bad for a straight-six powered SUV.

If the mysterious video BMW released last week showing a mysterious M-modified X6-based vehicle does, in fact, show a diesel-powered X6, then it stands to reason we should be hearing more details about that new oil-burning M powertrain anytime now.
