If you're counting down the days until you can buy a new BMW 4-Series coupe or convertible, here's some good news: 4-Series Forums has published a leaked chart from BMW, showing the production start (and end) dates of all 2014 4-Series models (excluding the M4).
All coupe variants will begin production in Munich, Germany, this July, and will be produced for the 2014 model year through June of 2014. Convertible…
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…
Shown at Los Angeles for the first time in North American with stunning BMW Individual Frozen White exterior paint, the freshly-updated 2013 BMW 7 Series Sedan has again set new benchmarks in its class for performance, luxury, efficiency and safety. Updates for 2013 include substantial powertrain enhancements for the 740i / Li, 750i / Li, xDrive and BMW ALPINA B7 models. The new 7 Series, which starts with the 740i model at an MSRP of $74,195 including Destination & Handling, boasts a revised exterior that features new technologies such as available LED headlights. The interior…
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…
BMW's SUVs have been rightly praised for closely mirroring the brand's sedan performance. With the X1, that continues.
The X1 has been on sale in Europe since 2009, but the company waited for this mid-cycle refresh to bring its small SUV to the U.S. market. We'll get two engines: the 28i with a twin-scroll turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission, and the U.S.-exclusive 35i, with BMW's potent twin-scroll turbo 3.0-liter six mated to a six-speed automatic. All- or rear-wheel drive is offered with the smaller engine (sDrive 28i…
Looking for a fun-to-drive small luxury crossover that offers respectable utility along with dimensions that are actually small? Then you need to put the 2013 BMW X1 on your test-drive list. Smaller than its X3 brother but still related to both the 1 Series and 3 Series, the X1 offers the impressive performance you'd rightly expect from such a pedigree. And the X1's notably leaner dimensions -- it's 6.5 inches shorter in length and nearly 5 inches shorter in height than an X3 -- give it a more agile demeanor than its larger and heavier crossover rivals.
The 2013 BMW 3 Series wagon is fully redesigned, aligning it with the next-generation sedan that debuted last year. Both benefit from now-standard power front seats and a new M Sport equipment line, while "xDrive" all-wheel drive makes its return to the sedan lineup. Meanwhile, the ActiveHybrid3 makes its debut for 2013, offering 28 mpg combined and an eye-popping price.
Last year's introduction of the new BMW 3 Series was a very big deal. In Germany, we imagine parades being held in its honor with blue-and-white checkered flags flapping from windows as men…
