BMW Will Change Up Its Naming Tradition with the new XM Hybrid SUV

BMW Will Change Up Its Naming Tradition with the new XM Hybrid SUV

You won’t recognize the trim levels on the XM

There is no doubt about one thing: the next BMW XM must be huge! And we are not only talking about its dimensions. The XM will be BMW M’s first standalone vehicle since the M1 sportscar in 1978, which means it must be at least as amazing as the M1 was, if not better. The first details we have on the next XM are of course promising - an electric SUV with 750 horsepower under the hood in range-topping form will give its competition a lot to deal with.

AC Schnitzer Will Make Your BMW M240i Better than the BMW M2

AC Schnitzer Will Make Your BMW M240i Better than the BMW M2

For its 35th anniversary, AC Schnitzer decided to take the BMW M240i and turn it into a proper M-car

When we talk about modified BMWs, one name that often comes to mind is AC Schnitzer. The tuner based in Aachen, Germany has been modifying the already-capable BMW models since it was founded in 1987. Now, the mad scientists from AC Schnitzer have turned their efforts to the 2022 BMW M240i. The Bavarian pocket rocket packs plenty of performance from the factory, but this version of the BMW G42, modified by AC Schnitzer, promises to give the range-topping BMW M2 a taste of its own medicine. Have they created a better M-car than BMW’s M-division?

The Upcoming 2023 BMW M2 Is Too Fat For AWD

The Upcoming 2023 BMW M2 Is Too Fat For AWD

You’re out of luck if you want your M2 with AWD grip

The 2023 BMW M2 is upon us. As a matter of fact, the German luxury automaker already began teasing the M2 as it went through rigorous track testing at Salzburgring in Austria. Its launch is scheduled for October, with the M2 hitting showrooms by April 2023. This got us wondering whether the M2 will benefit from the brand’s M xDrive all-wheel drive (AWD) system, just like the M3 and M4, but unfortunately, that won’t happen for the M2.

2022 BMW M4 - Performance, Price, and Photos

With top-notch hardware and technology, the current M4 range blitzes past its competition in style

The BMW 4 Series and M4 were redesigned from the ground up for the 2021 model year. Now in its second generation, the M4 model-line up has evolved a lot to include a wide array of options with something for everyone. For that thoroughbred analog driving experience, BMW still has a six-speed manual option.

But if you want to keep up with the times and want to exploit that M-Tuned heart, then you’ve got a trusty eight-speed ZF automatic on tap that offers lightning-fast shifts. Also, for the first time ever, BMW offers xDrive, which is BMW’s AWD along with the option of a convertible on the top-spec model. Let’s take a closer look at the 2022 BMW M4 range.

The Next-Gen 2025 BMW M5 Goes Hybrid, And It's A Good Thing

The Next-Gen 2025 BMW M5 Goes Hybrid, And It’s A Good Thing

Electrification means that the BMW M5 can hang onto its legendary V-8 a little bit longer

Ever since the BMW M5 was launched back in 1998 it was always defined by its driving dynamic and powerful engine. It started with a straight-six engine and continued with either V-8 or V-10, but no matter what, it always had a lot of power under the hood. The most powerful version is of course the current generation M5, with no less than 591 horses from a brutal V-8

The seventh generation M5 will take a completely different approach: it will be hybrid! That should come as no surprise to anyone as most makers are trying to electrify their lineup, and it has been the subject of speculation for a while. Now, however, BMW M Workshop Manager, Hans Rahn, has confirmed the next M5 will be a hybrid.

BMW XM: How the World’s Love for SUVs Killed The BMW M1’s Successor

Car enthusiasts want a BMW M sports car, but the world wants an SUV

The BMW XM is a very controversial vehicle, to say the least.

The thing is, this is yet another SUV, and purists really want a sports car. So, did BMW M do the right thing by creating the XM instead of a successor to the M1?
