The 2017 BMW 6 Series is a newest generation of luxury grand tourers produced by the BMW company. Its new platform with a redesigned look is a marvelous addition to any garage.
Exterior of new BMW 6 Series
Classy, elegant exterior is something people have come to expect from BMW, and 2017 BMW 6 Series does not disappoint. The 6 Series is everything you could want in a grand tourer: a sleek machine with a position that’s large and low, with performance to match what you see and expect. The new BMW is expected to hold an edge over anything the competition has to offer. The general dimensions cannot change much, as there is so little left to change; there is little room for physical alterations at this point. All there is to do is to add superior gadgets and improve on aerodynamics even further. In terms of aesthetics, the new 6 Series is expected to have more prominent grille and headlights and taillights are going to be more narrow, in order to produce the desired aesthetic and psychological effect.
Interior of 2017 BMW 6 Series
Unlike previous models, 2017 BMW 6 Series is expected to offer more space to its passengers, due to slightly longer wheelbase. A four door design hardly befits a grand tourer, anyway; most enthusiasts tend to favor the two-door versions. The interior is likely to sport Alcantara, wood, aluminum, and fine leather (Dakota or Nappa), accompanied by latest infotainment systems, a high-end audio system, and lots and lots of optional equipment like strengthened seats, a leather-wrapped wheel, and grippy pedals. The optional Black Accent Package is particularly a nice touch.
2017 BMW 6 Series Engine and Transmission
If we take current reports into account, the 2017 BMW 6 Series will offer 4 engines in its variants. The 640i is going to be equipped by a 3.0L Inline-6 gas engine capable of producing 347 horsepower. A 3.0-liter lnline-6 diesel motor with 333 horse power will be powering the 640d design. Next is the 4.4 L V8 with a capability of producing an astounding 476 horsepower. The top-tier model should, by all accounts, come with the most powerful gas engine of the series: a 4.4 L twin-turbo V-8 capable of producing 600 horse power and reaching 60mph in 4.2 seconds.
The speed is capped at 155mph. All engines will certainly power the rear drive, as this is usually the case with the BMW 6 Series. Of course, optional variety with four-wheel-drive will also be on offer. Eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission is the norm, except for the M6 which gets a seven-speed dual clutch unit. Naturally, both types of transmission come with a Launch Control function.
BMW 6 Series Release Date
The 2017 BMW 6 Series is expected to be on sale in early 2016. The exact date has not been specified.
2017 BMW 6 Series Price
While it is still far too early to talk about price, the initial estimates are around $80,000 for base design, even though some models are anticipated to cost more than $100,000. The specifics will have to wait for another day and another announcement.
All things considered, the new BMW 6 series will offer the ultimate package of power and appeal we’ve all come to know and love. It’s only a matter of time before it makes its debut on the streets.
