2017 BMW M5 price, specs, interior changes – The BMW M5 is a high performance version of the 5-Series executive sedan which packs 560 or 575 horsepower and a lot of upgrades under its skin which make it one of the fastest sedans on the market today. However, the current model is no longer a driver’s car but rather a high speed tourer which happens to have four doors. The steering no longer offers the great feedback it used to on the previous models while the running gear has been toned down in order to become more comfortable but not more compliant. This model is luckily going to be completely replaced with the new BMW M5 2017 which is not going to be just a small facelift but rather an all new model with the codename G30.
2017 BMW M5 price and release date
The 2017 BMW M5 is going to be based on the new 5-Series which also means it will get the all new modular platform. This uses a lot more high strength steel as well as aluminum which are meant to lower the weight and increase its strength considerable which is all it matters in a high performance sedan like the M5. The new model is expected to be released some time in the mid of 2016 while the production model will likely not be available for sale by the end of 2016 or early 2017. Its price could go up to around $100,000 for the base model while the special versions could fetch a lot more than that.
New BMW M5 2017 interior redesign
Let’s start this small preview with the exterior design of the new BMW M5 2017 because a lot of people are certainly going to be stunned by BMW’s decision. There are inside rumors which say that this new model of the M5 is going to be available both in wagon form as well as gran tourer, meaning there are going to be three different models of the car, all with different targets. The sedan is likely going to be the best one out there because it will be the lightest and it has the chance of being the most powerful of the three. Also, despite the fact the design has not been released just yet, some cars have been spied testing and it seems that the new 2017 BMW M5 will be just as subtle as the current model but it will come with a bit more flair.
Inside the cabin it should receive all the newest technologies from BMW starting with the head-up display, automatic laser headlights which will drastically improve nighttime visibility as well as it will be one of the first cars to receive the all new iDrive system. The materials are all going to be top of the line with aluminum, leather, carbon fiber and even wood for those who like it.
2017 BMW M5 horsepower specs
Engine wise, the new BMW M5 2017 will not change as much as we would like and in fact, it is expected to receive the same 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V8 as the current model. However, this time, thanks to a lot of changes to the intake and exhaust systems as well as new engine management systems, the new M5 should make 600 horsepower and more than 520 lb-ft of torque on the base model while the one equipped with the Competition Package will likely make nearly 630 horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque which is almost just as much as the CTS-V. The 0 to 60 MPH time will drop under 3.5 seconds for both of them while the top speed is likely going to be well over 180 MPH. The biggest change though is going to be the all wheel drive system which has been spied on an M5 testing at the Arctic Circle. This should allow the 2017 BMW M5 to get even faster to 60 MPH and it will make the car a lot more secure during harsh weather conditions.
