BMW X6 Engine Oil Finder

In 2008, the German manufacturer started production of the first generation of the BMW X6, also known at the time as the first SUV coupe ever. The initial scepticism about the model quickly subsided as sales increased. It brings together the best of design, space and sporting spirit, making it a real all-rounder.

In the course of its production, the BMW X6 has already had a large number of engines. Naturally, this includes both petrol and diesel engines, and even a mild hybrid has recently been added to the range.

The third generation of the SUV coupe comes with four different engines, petrol and diesel. The range of engines is extremely extensive and vary in performance from 265hp to 625hp. In all versions, the first-class 8-speed automatic transmission from ZF takes over the power transmission with the help of the BMW all-wheel drive.

The BMW X6 is currently in its third generation (since 2019). The SUV coupé is a real giant in the luxury SUV segment and stands out with its length of almost 5 meters. This makes the X6 particularly suitable for small families, even on long journeys. Thanks to the large trunk volume of 580 litres, nothing stands in the way of a holiday trip either. The BMW X6 comes in 3 different engines as petrol and diesel. The basic variant already has 20-inch light-alloy wheels, a leather steering wheel in the M Competition style, the adaptive M suspension and the M Sport brake.

Every engine oil will have its viscosity grade labelled on the packaging. This will look something like 0W-20, 5W-30 or 5W-40. This grading is used to measure how thick / fluid the oil is and help ensure you buy the right oil for your car. The lower the viscosity grade of the oil, the more fluid and thinner it will be than those with a high grade (higher numbers) which will be much less running and thick.

So which engine oil should you buy for your BMW X6? Whether you are topping up your BMW X6 oil or doing a full change of your BMW X6's oil it is really important that you use the correct grade of oil.

We have listed all the BMW X6 models and engine types in the following table, as well as the correct engine oil grade for each of the cars. You can use the search and filter to easily find the right engine oil for an BMW X6.
