BMW is a renowned car manufacturer. The vehicles manufactured by the company are known to excel in quality and performance. The most loved car in the BMW lineup is the 6 series. It is not only a luxury sedan, but can also double as a mean racing machine. The aggressive engine specifications combined with the sophisticated transmission give the 6 series a unique appeal. For a car classed as a sub-compact, it is one of the best on the market. The latest BMW 6-Series will be released in 2015. Once the 2015 BMW 6 Series is launched, it is sure to take the market by storm.

Engine Specifications

The best thing about BMW vehicles is the attention to detail. Not only does the company concentrate on making the car look better, they also add more juice to what’s under the hood. The 2015 BMW 6 Series is available in two engine variants across all trims. The 2015 BMW 640i has the smaller engine. This engine is an Inline 6 and its capacity is 3.0-liter. There is no doubt about the fact that this engine produces immense power. But most people will not be inclined to go for the 3.0-liter variant. This is why there is a more aggressive engine variant.

This engine variant is a V-8 and its capacity is 4.4 liters. The best part about these engines is that they come with built-in turbochargers. The smaller engine variant has an intercooled turbo. This alone provides a substantial boost. On the other hand, the 4.4-liter engine is twin turbocharged.

Engine Performance

The performance for both engines is exceptional. The fact that they are turbocharged contributes significantly to their performance. The smaller 3.0-liter variant generates an incredible 315 ponies which is commendable. On the other hand, the 4.4-liter V-8 generates a staggering 540 horses. If you are interested in a fair performance along with an economical gas mileage, the 3.5-liter intercooler turbocharged engine variant is perfect for you. If you are willing to sacrifice the gas mileage for a powerful machine, you should stay tuned for the 4.4-liter variant.

Transmission Options

The transmission of the 2015 BMW 6 Series is state of the art. It provides excellent gear ratios that give the car a seamless drive. The transmission of this vehicle is an eight-speed automatic. The rear wheel drive feature is what contributes to a stable drive and superb handling. There are two options when it comes to the drivetrain of the 2015 BMW 6 Series. You can either get the full time all-wheel drive or the rear wheel drive variant. Do keep in mind that whichever variant you choose, you are bound to love the way the car handles.

Interior Styling

One of the best things about the 2015 BMW 6 Series is the interior styling. The interior of this car is without a doubt a marvel to look at. The 2015 BMW 6 Series comes with bucket seats. However, this car is not a pure race car. This is why you will find a luxury appeal to it as well. To make sure that the car excels as a sports machine and a luxury cruiser at the same time, there is sufficient legroom for comfort. The interior comfort is enhanced due to the suspension installed in the ride.

Exterior Design

The exterior is probably the only thing about the 2015 BMW 6 Series that has not experienced significant changes. The appearance of the car is quite similar to the previous model. However, there are several fresh aspects to the car’s design. This helps the 2015 BMW 6 Series retain a signature appearance.

Now you can decide whether or not you want to check out the all-new BMW 6 Series.
