The Germans from BMW announced their intentions to introduce the xDrive traction system on the new 6 Series generation. Therefore, the U.S. customers will be able to order the new BMW 6 Series with the all-wheel drive system, an alternative to the traditional rear-wheel drive system. According to the official details, the new BMW 6 Series xDrive will be available in both Coupe and Convertible body styles, the actual all-wheel drive system being priced at around $3,000.
This means that the BMW 650i Coupe is priced from $83,000 while the Convertible version is a little bit expensive starting at $90,500.
The Germans also claim that the all-wheel drive model sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 4,7 seconds for the Coupe and 4,8 seconds for the Convertible, slightly quicker than the current 6 Series RWD.
BMW also released few new details about the BMW 640i Coupe and Convertible, models that are going to enter the U.S. market soon. The model in question will get the 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine able to offer 315 horsepower and 447 Nm of torque. This enables an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 5,5 seconds and a top speed limited at 250 km/h.
