If you consider yourself an avid fan of Bavarian
brand, BMW, and its new model lineup, then you're likely familiar with its many
automotive concepts geared toward its mission to improve both mobility and
sustainability, world-wide, including right here in the Knoxville, TN area.
And, if this is the case, you're
also likely familiar with both the BMW
i3 and i8: two models which, as a part of BMW's
"Project I," are?
A month after the official
curtain was dropped, BMW has seen fit
to release pricing information on its new 2014 X5 crossover. The X5 sDrive35i,
which is the first rear-wheel-drive version of the X5, will begin at $53,725
(*including $925 for destination and handling) while the traditional
all-wheel-drive X5 xDrive35i will begin at $56,025. Both feature BMW's
well-regarded 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo N55 engine with 300 horsepower and 300
pound-feet of torque.

names confused you yet?) is priced at $57,525 with…

A new, entry-level model will join BMW's popular 3 Series lineup this year. Dubbed the 320i, the latest 3 Series joins the model's range below the 328i, shaving off horsepower to reach a more affordable base price of $33,445 including destination.

The BMW X6 M is a four-passenger high-performance SUV that's offered in a single trim level. Power comes from a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 that cranks out 555 hp and 501 pound-feet of torque. With a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive, this powertrain is capable of sending this 5,300-pound truck from zero to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds -- quicker than a BMW M3.
The X6 M isn't all engine, however, as BMW has made a number of modifications to make this heavy SUV handle more like a sport sedan. Standard 20-inch wheels…
Let's See What people are saying about the all new BMW 4 Series:
First let me say that coming to the Detroit Auto Show, I was a bit apprehensive about the new4 Series. A whole new series out of what was previously just a model within a series? That's gonna mean there are some pretty darn big expectations with the 4 Series. Now, having seen the BMW 4 SeriesCoupeand talked to the designers in person, I am sold. Like really sold. Like figure out how to make room for it in the garage sold.
BMW?s big SUV offers style, space, luxury, and car-like handling. And there?s a high-quality interior that offers seating for up to seven. The turbo six-cylinder is adequate, while either turbocharged V-8 makes the X5 a really sporty SUV. The diesel version goes away for 2013.
Attractive and comfy interior, drives like a really tall car, the M version is supremely strong and offers sports-car levels of performance.
Redesigned for 2007, M introduced for 2010; turbo-diesel 35d discontinued for 2013.
Unchanged for 2013, the BMW M3 is a performance-oriented version of the 3 Series, available in sedan, coupe, and convertible trim levels. The M3 is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 engine, with M Double-VANOS variable valve timing, that produces 414 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque, for a 0-60 time of 4.9 seconds. Transmission options consist of a 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic transmission. Fuel mileage is an EPA estimated 14 mpg city and 20 mpg highway. Features include xenon adaptive headlights, heated mirrors, rear spoiler, HD radio, push-button start, automatic climate control, vehicle…

Split-folding rear seats and a universal garage door opener are now standard features for all 2013 BMW 5 Series models.
In the 40 years the BMW 5 Series has been in production in its various iterations, it has come to define the midsize luxury sedan market, and for good reason. A steady stream of improvements and innovations, plus an admirable blend of comfort, craftsmanship and performance, has set this midsize BMW apart from the middle-of-the-road cars in its market segment.
The 2013 BMW 5 Series proudly carries on this tradition, although its core message…
