After A Quarter-Million X6 Sales, Munich Goes Back To The Well

BMW has been in the line-blurring business of late, with the original X5 "Sports Activity Vehicle" muddling the line between SUVs and sport sedans in 1999, the 5 Series Gran Turismo challenging what our definition of "Gran Turismo" means in 2009, and pretty, low-roofed four-doors like the 6 Series Gran Coupe and the fresh new 4 Series Gran Coupe broadening the meaning of the word "coupe."

104BMW 3 Series wagon configurator up, priced from $41,450

If you're still smarting from the shock of the BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo, we have good news for you. BMW has just fired up the configurator for the 2014 3 Series wagon. Prices start at $41,450, excluding an $895 destination and handling fee. The price tag will buy you a 328i xDrive Sports Wagon with a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine boasting 241 horsepower paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment. The automaker's xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive is also sta

25BMW says yes to 1 Series M successor, no to M6 Gran Coupe with xDrive

If you're anything like us, the first half of that headline made you smile. The BMW 1 Series M Coupe was, without a doubt, one of our favorite cars from the past few years, and according to a BMW Blog interview, Dr. Friedrich Nitschke, head of the company's M division, has confirmed that a successor is in the works.

182013 BMW M135i xDrive adds all-wheel drive to performance hatchback platform

The new-for-2013 BMW 1 Series three-door is a wonderful thing in any of the configurations that we don't get to buy here in the U.S. (We know, we're like a broken record with this "forbidden fruit" bit these days, but the fly-away auto shows really bring it out of us.) Of course, the best of all versions, it is easy to assume, is this BMW M135i xDrive.

16BMW's xDrive coming for 1 Series line

As part of its Paris Motor Show festivities, BMW will be debuting new all-wheel-drive versions of the European-spec 1 Series hatchback. At the show, the German automaker will show off the two AWD-equipped models that will be available at launch, the diesel-powered 120d xDrive and the range-topping M135i xDrive – a car that we've already sampled (and enjoyed) in its rear-wheel-drive configuration.

22BMW announces pricing for updated 2013 7 Series

The latest new bit of news surrounding the 2013 BMW 7 Series is a price tag: $74,195 gets you inside the large doors of the 740i, and that includes $895 destination (as do all prices that follow). The 740Li xDrive is a new addition slotted at the top of the 740 range and will run $81,195. Next up on the entry-price ladder is the ActiveHybrid 7 with a smaller but more more potent powertrain, 2.5 miles of EV range and better fuel economy, ringing up $84,895 at the till.

The Little Engine That Could Gets Its First Real Test

522013 BMW X1 configurator is maddeningly complex

The cupboard of virtual options has opened itself yet again with the appearance of the 2013 BMW X1 configurator. There are three choices of X1 to choose from, the sDrive28i, xDrive28i and xDrive35i, and then three trim levels beyond that: X Line, Sport Line and M Sport Line.

10BMW recalling 24,000 vehicles over emissions problem

BMW wants to take another look at over 24,000 vehicles it's sold in the United States. No, this isn't just to check out how they're holding up in the real world, it's to make sure the smoke coming out of the tailpipe is clean enough.

BMW wants to take another look at over 24,000 diesel vehicles it's sold in the U.S. No, this isn't just to check out how they're holding up in the real world, it's to make sure the smoke coming out of the tailpipe is clean enough.

162012 BMW M550d xDrive leaves us both giddy and quietly weeping

Even though we drove it extensively last month, BMW officially took the wraps off of the 2012 BMW M550d xDrive at the Geneva Motor Show. The M-tuned five-passenger sedan continues to put a smile on our face even as it causes yet another salty tear to drip down our cheek.

22BMW reveals new 6 Series diesel with xDrive

BMW and its commitment to maximizing the potential of every model continues with the 2012 640d xDrive. It's the first time the 6 Series has used a diesel engine, and it sound like it won't disappoint if 'sporty' and 'oil-burning' are your prerogatives: the 3.0-liter inline six with TwinPower turbos throws off 313 horsepower and 465 pound-feet, with all that twist available from around 2,000 rpm. Working through the standard eight-speed automatic will get you from 0 to 60 in five seconds, and the

10BMW adds all-wheel drive to 6 Series range

There aren't a lot of all-wheel-drive convertibles on the market – but most of them come from German automakers. In fact nearly all of them come from the Volkswagen Group portfolio: the Audi A5, TT and R8, the Porsche 911, Bentley Continental GTC, Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder and Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport. But BMW is not about to let its arch rival keep that entire market – however small and specific it might be – all to itself. And to that end, it has just made the 2012 6 Seri

44BMW confirms M-tuned 5 Series diesel

As part of the buildup to this weekend's Pebble Beach Concours weekend, Autoblog senior editor Damon Lavrinc is in Monterey with BMW, where he has been able to confirm that the 5 Series will receive a diesel model tuned by the automaker's M performance division.

Heading into the 2011 model year, BMW is adding even more powertrain variants across its lineup. The most likely candidate for the U.S. market is the 550i xDrive sedan. The 407 horsepower twin-turbocharged V8 can send its 400 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels with the rears getting 60 percent of the grunt. The front-to-rear balance can be adjusted on the fly based on traction conditions, and if the car is cornering, more torque is sent to the back freeing up the fronts for steering force.
