Fastest SUVs In The World
The general consensus is that SUVs are more practical vehicles than they are something that fills the adrenaline cravings. They’re also considered as big, bulky vehicles that can tow stuff or even be taken offroad. If you want the performance, you can get yourself sports cars or supercars, or even hot hatches, for that matter. But, there are some SUVs that can put even some of the world’s best sports cars to shame with their performance. Automakers are creating straight-line monsters that can achieve speeds of well over 180 mph despite their big builds, poor aerodynamic efficiency, and heavy curb weights. Here’s a list of the fastest SUVs in the world in 2022:
Specs and Details of the G87 BMW M2 Exposed
BMW’s M division is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and with that, we are waiting for not just the G87 M2 but also the first M-powered SUV, the XM. tAlso, an M-powered wagon is waiting to join the line-up later in June 2022, the M3 Touring. So, while we are eagerly waiting for the full-fat M2, BMW teased us with many camouflaged photos of the prototype in Salzburgring, a 2.6-mile racetrack in Austria. Additionally, they have revealed a lot of specs for the upcoming M2, which we will discuss thoroughly.
The Upcoming 2023 BMW M2 Is Too Fat For AWD
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.
Manhart MHX5 700 - Pushing the BMW X5 M to New Levels
Manhart has a long list of MHX tuning programs. The most recent one is the MHX6 700 based on the BMW X6 M Competition and it was shortly followed by the MHX5 700 based on the X5 M Competition. The model was first announced back in January, but a new version was just announced since a new customer opted for a more extreme version. As with all the other kits, the MHX5 700 gives the X5 M Competition a power boost, but also an updated look to both inside and out.
Top 10 EVs With The Longest Range In 2022
EVs have dawned upon us and have become competent mainstream alternatives to cars with internal combustion engines in the last few years. While their performance was never in doubt, available range has led to some pretty extreme anxiety. The range was one of the major reasons why most folks were skeptical about switching to green cars. But, things are quite different now. Technology is getting better every single day and automakers are able to improve the range of cars like never before. Gone are the days when achieving even 400 miles of range was a distant dream. Today, cars like Lucid Air offer more than 500 miles of range and Tesla more than 400 miles. Concept cars like the Mercedes-Benz Vision EQXX claim to offer over 600 miles of range. It won’t be too long before that becomes a reality, too. For now, here is a list of EVs that offer the best range in 2022.
It’s Starting to Sound Like BMW M and ALPINA Are Going to Clash
For nearly six decades ALPINA has been an independent company building modified BMWs. They were usually similar to the in-house M models with more power and occasionally different suspension and handling setups. However, the ALPINAs were designed with a more luxurious attitude, forgoing all-out power and speed. Now, with BMW officially bringing Alpina under its roof, the ultimate driving machine may be taking more and more steps towards luxury and customer customization.
The Next-Gen 2025 BMW M5 Goes Hybrid, And It’s A Good Thing
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.
2022 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe - Performance, Price, And Photos
This is the 2022 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe. Now in its second generation, the 4 Series Gran Coupe sits in a strange place within the BMW universe, but that’s exactly what sets it apart. Slotting in between the 3 and the bigger 5 Series has its benefits. The 4 Series packs everything that the 3 Series already does right and then some.
With added practicality thanks to the hatchback style tailgate, more interior room, swoopy fastback looks, and only a small price premium over the 3, you can’t ignore this Gran Coupe’s appeal. It’s no wonder that these things have been flying off the shelves over in Europe. This latest generation sees a number of changes inside and outside, so let’s take a closer look at what’s new for 2022.
The 2023 iX1 Marks BMW’s entry Into The Electric Compact Segment
At the same time with the launch of the third generation X1, BMW also launched the iX1 - the first all-wheel-drive electric car introduced by the brand in the premium compact segment. For now, it seems that the iX1 will only be offered in Europe, as the U.S. will only get the X1 xDrive28i - a model priced from $38,600.
Spy Shots: An Early Look at the 2024 BMW X6 M60i
Update: Another BMW X6 prototype has been spotted testing on public roads, and this time, we’re pretty sure we’re looking at the X6 M60i - the model that will sit just below the X6 M. Little has changed since the last round of spy shots, but this prototype does feature the typical M60i exhaust outlets, and we’re told to expect an output somewhere in the neighborhood of around 530 horsepower. An official reveal should happen sometime in 2023 with sales to commence for the 2024 model year.
BMW XM: How the World’s Love for SUVs Killed The BMW M1’s Successor
The BMW XM is a very controversial vehicle, to say the least. The XM happens to be BMW M’s first standalone vehicle since the M1 sportscar in 1978, and it also serves as a celebration of BMW M’s 50-year history. 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?
The BMW M3 Edition 50 Jahre is a $20,000 Celebration Piece With a Wicked Paint Job
BMW M was established back in May 1972, which means, 2022 marks the division’s 50th anniversary. BMW actually started the celebration back in 2021 when it unveiled a unique BMW M logo designed specifically for the event and culminated with the launch of the M4 CSL a few days ago. Now the celebration continues with the launch of a special edition based on the BMW M3.
Rendering: The BMW 4 Series Coupe Deserves This Redesign
It was 2021 when the new generation BMW 4 Series was launched and while almost everything was perfect, BMW has been heavily criticized for the huge kidney grilles. Since the Bavarian auto giant updated the 3 Series sedan models in May 2022, and didn’t switch to the larger grille layout, we are keeping hopes high as it is the 4 Series’ turn to see some updated visuals. Thanks to X-Tomi Designs, we know what we want, the good old smaller kidney grilles with a more aggressive front-end styling.
