2018 BMW M5 Coming Next Spring
The 2018 BMW M5, in its 6th generation, powered by a 600 horsepower twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 engine mated to a new 8-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic, will have a first ever BMW M xDrive system with 2WD capability. The rear-biased set-up ensures that the front wheels only come into play when the rear wheels are not able to transmit any more torque to the road. With 40 more horsepower than the outgoing model its 0–60 mph acceleration is 3.2 seconds. The all-new 2018 BMW M5 will be available at certified BMW Centers in Spring 2018 with pricing to be announced closer to market launch.
