The fourth-generation 2017 BMW 6 Series will receive a longer wheelbase and fresh new design, both inside and out. It is expected to go on sale during 2016. Keep reading for the latest details and rumors.
Exterior and Interior Design
The exterior of the 2017 BMW 6 Series will be changed. The range will be redesigned and lighter, and it will be available in three body styles: coupe, gran coupe and cabriolet. Gran Coupe will be longer, but the other two variants will actually be shorter. That also means less weight and better performance. Word is that it’s gonna feature the headlights and taillights similar to those found on the BMW i8.
Latest rumors claim that the interior of the 2017 BMW 6 Series will be increased, thanks to the increased wheelbase. Expect to see premium materials all over the cabin, including high-quality leather, Alcantara, wood, aluminum and chrome accents. An infotainment system, premium audio system, connectivity and satellite navigation will also be included.
Engine Range, Specs, Performance
According to recent reports, four engines are confirmed for the 2017 BMW 6 Series. The 640i is going to be powered by a 3.0L Inline-6 gasoline engine delivering 347 horsepower. A 3.0-liter Inline-6 diesel engine producing 333 horsepower will be powering the 640d model. The 650i will come with a 4.4L V-8 petrol unit and will be able to produce 476 hp. The top-range M6 model will have the most powerful petrol engine — a 4.4L twin-turbo V-8 generating 600 horsepower. All engines will transfer power to the rear axle. Optional xDrive range with four-wheel-drive will also be offered.
