BMW X4 M40i
The BMW X4 M40i is a SUV built for so much more than daily driving. This vehicle has been equipped with a new M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology inline 6-cylinder engine that can achieve 355 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque. According to the automaker, the X4 M40i has best-in-class acceleration, going from 0 to 60 in a tiny 4.7 seconds. The SUV doesn’t skimp on technology, either, as it will be available with BMW ConnectedDrive and Twin Scroll when it arrives at dealerships in February 2016.
BMW M2 Coupe
The 2016 BMW M2’s details were released back in October, and its big unveiling at NAIAS was talked about before the show even began. The sporty vehicle certainly looks the part, and it has just been announced that the model will be available at dealerships beginning in April of this year.
Under the hood of this stylish coupe is a six-cylinder engine that out powers the BMW 1 M Coupe, with peak torque at 343 lb-ft of torque and 365 bhp. This is also more than 70 lb-ft more torque than the previous generation of the BMW M3.
