BMW X6 Tows a Snowcat in Commercial [Video]
They call it a Sports Activity Vehicle, which is a nice way of saying it’s not for towing a horse box, it’s more of a car to go skiing in. Convention will tell you that the X6 is useless if you’re in a muddy hill or snowy mountain. The car has no low range gearbox, differentials that you can manually lock or hydraulic suspension to increase the ride height.
We forgive the X6 because of that impractical but interesting body, but BMW seems to think it’s a whole lot more competent than we give it credit for. They’ve released this video of the X6 towing a huge snow plough called a snowcat up a hill, in the snow. The shoot was made in St. Moritz, the biggest congregation of rich people who like to ski in Europe, and we can only assume this is a TV commercial.
The X6 would have struggled to tow that machine in dry conditions without the incline of the hill. Besides that, the towing equipment doesn’t seem up to the challenge it’s supposedly undertaking.
