GKN Driveline of the U.K. and Germanys ZF Friedrichshafen jointly developed the BMW X6s new standard feature called Dynamic Performance Control.
The feature continuously distributes drive power along the rear axle between the left and right wheels. Four-wheel-drive vehicles tend to understeer during high-speed cornering. The system helps minimize this by increasing the torque applied to the outer wheel. GKN Driveline and ZF say the feature is superior to those from rivals as it functions adequately when speed remains constant. For example, electronic stability control requires deceleration for the system to engage.
Brose of Germany delivers electrical window regulators and electrical head rests for the X6. Frances Faurecia provides the X6s instrument panel for which Germanys Draexlmaiersupplies the leather covering.
BMW manufactures the X6 alongside the X5 at its U.S. factory in Spartanburg,
South Carolina. The starting prices for the X6 in Germany is 57,900 euros.
