BMW has started campaigning the all-new M5 more than six months ago with BMW purists long-expecting its arrival. Now that the await is over, the all-new 2018 M5 is here for the taking with xDrive configuration and plenty of juice under the hood.
Set to officially arrive in dealerships later on this year, the all-new 2018 BMW M5 has a lot to offer in terms of technology and mechanics.
One of the car`s main highlights refer to the xDrive configuration which uses a “central intelligence unit” that provides “all the agility and precision of standard rear-wheel drive with the supreme poise and traction of the all-wheel-drive system.”
This means that the model also makes use of three different driving modes – 2WD, 4WD and 4WD Sport – which activate whenever it is necessary. For instance, in the 2WD mode, the power is sent to the rear wheels via the new Active M differential, making thus sure that the driving is done in a “very sporty manner.”
Being considered the “most advanced version” so far, the all-new 2018 BMW M5 with xDrive makes use of a 4.4-liter twin-turbo engine, with 600 horsepower and 700 Nm of torque, enabling a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.5 seconds, making it “noticeable quicker than its predecessor.”
Technology wise, the new M5 borrows the same technology lineup also seen on the latest 5-Series or 2016 7-Series. It has been also equipped with updated equipment, like new shifter, M Sport steering wheel with two M Drive buttons, adding as well the state-of-the-art Head-Up Display with satellite navigation and much more.
