Revised BMW vehicles roar into Detroit
Today BMW have took to the stage at the Detroit Auto Show and have revealed two all new revised models to their range coming in the form of both the M6 and the refreshed 6 Series model. BMW have added to the excitement of both of these motors by including new changes in design but that is not where the fun ends. Although the firm have carried over the existing engine range, they have also added improvements to them which now see them perform more efficiently than ever before. Saloon,Coupe and Convertible variants of the vehicle are already in existence and BMW were pleased to reveal that all three variations will receive the new changes. Both the standard 6 Series and the M sports version are big sellers for the brand with the M range focusing more on performance and given these latest batch of updates for both cars, we can easily see them selling more units this year when both models go on sale.
What changes have been introduced for the 6 Series?
Before we jump into the visual changes made to the range, we first take a look at those differences which we will now see coming from the engine range. Adjustments have been made on both variations which now make the engines EU6 compliant here in the UK. The popular V8 petrol engine has seen some changes which increase the quickness of the vehicle and a sports exhaust system is now included with all petrol models. Diesel engines have also received the same treatment on the standard 6 Series. M6 models already boast a quick speed which is why no adjustments have been made to this particular range but the company have confirmed that for M6 customers, both the steering and suspension system of the car has received some mild tuning in order for them to perform more efficiently. Stop-start technology can now be found across the range.
The bumper located at the front end of the vehicles has received some focus on new shaping and design, a kidney style front grille has now also been equipped. New ally wheel designs and LED headlights are two of the main eye catching highlights to be introduced. BMW haven't announced a date of launch for the revised models but we do know that they will go on sale sometime shortly after the end of the Detroit Auto Show.
BMW maintaining rivalries with the facelifted 6 Series range?
Both the 6 Series line up and the M6 have proven to be one of the biggest players on the market for many years and in the past have helped BMW to bring the fight to some big selling vehicles such as the R8 from Audi and the Mercedes S range. Given new tweaks made to handling and power improvements for the standard 6 Series, this could see more customers edging towards a 6 Series this year over the competition.
