Two-Year-Old BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo Is Already Up For A Facelift

We’ve already seen that BMW is planning a facelift for the 5 Series so it should come as no surprise that the 6 Series GT is also in for a refresh.

Formerly known as the 5 Series GT, the 6 Series GT launched only two years ago but the automaker is already working on a makeover as sales have been disappointing so far.

As with the facelifted 5 Series, the BMW 6 Series GT will sport a refreshed front end and a very subtle update to the back. The camouflage tape covers the grille, bumper, and even a portion of the headlights, hinting at a significant facelift. Expect revised headlights with a new LED signature, a redesigned bumper with differently styled air intakes, and a new and possibly bigger kidney grille.

Looking at the camouflage applied to the rear end it’s pretty clear that the changes are much more modest than at the front. The bumper will receive subtle updates and the LED taillights are likely to gain fresh graphics as well — though this particular prototype caught during hot weather testing in southern Europe still features the old lamps.

The interior is expected to remain largely the same given that the 6 Series GT is only two years old, save for some trim and color updates. However, BMW could operate some changes to the infotainment system and give the Gran Turismo model the latest 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 10.25-inch infotainment system from the 8 Series.

As for the powertrains, expect the same updates as for the 5 Series which means we could see a plug-in hybrid 6 Series GT come facelift time.

    Does anyone actually buy that ugly car?

  • oh no, here comes a big ugly grill

  • Gareth Williams

    Cars like these aren’t doing BMW’s brand image any favours at all. They should kill of this barge and bring back the 6 coupé, maybe a smaller, sportier version of the 8.

    I’ve never seen one in the flesh and thank God I haven’t cuz that thing is hideous. No wonder BMW is killing several models across their line-up. There’s no way this car is profitable at all

    BMW is run by clueless german dimwits.

    I reckon this will be the first and last 6 Series GT. The 3 Series GT was more successful but still ugly and they’re not replacing that.
