2019 BMW X8 Redesign, Release Date, Price. The new X7, which will come first, the company will also release a completely new 2019 BMW X8. As you may presume, these two models will be related in the same way as X5 and X6 models.
In other aspects, we don’t expect bigger differences between these two models. Far, we don’t know the exact details about the BMW X8’s arrival. For now, it is only certain that the new X7 will come.
2019 BMW X8 engines
The 2019 BMW X8 should come with a wide range of engines in the offer. The base unit will probably be a familiar 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine, which is good for about 322 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. We hope that the large V12 unit will be in the offer too.
When it comes to diesel, we expect to see a familiar 3.0-liter unit, which should be available in two output variants, with 315 and 394 horsepower. Expect to see hybrid powertrain in the future. All units come in a pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
2019 BMW X8 design
In terms of base design characteristics, 2019 BMW X8 shouldn’t be much different compared to the new X7. In the mechanical aspect, both models will ride on the same, extremely modular CLAR platform, which is in use of a big majority of BMW models, starting from Series 3 and up. If we can trust the latest reports, the new 2019 BMW X8 will feature M suspension already in the base variant, which isn’t the case with any other model in the company’s lineup.
Another important thing to mention is that this architecture is compatible with electrified powertrains. This is a clear indicator that the new 2019 BMW X8 will come not only in hi-performance gasoline variants but with hybrid powertrain too.
2019 BMW X8 styling
In terms of styling, it’s not hard to guess in which way will 2019 BMW X8 be going. While the new X7 will come with a pretty much common SUV shape, 2019 BMW X8 will come with recognizable sweeping roofline, which will provide that coupe-like styling.
On the other side, the front end should be familiar. The company will implement the newest design language, which continues with its evolution. Basically, expect no bigger difference between two new models in this part.
2019 BMW X8 interior design
It seems pretty early to speculate about the cabin of 2019 BMW X8, we are pretty sure that there won’t be bigger surprises in this aspect. Most likely, the new crossover, just like new X7, will take inspiration from the current 7 Series model. Of course, expect to see a bunch of new tech features, including the latest infotainment system and other gadgetry.
