The new 2017 BMW M5 is the super-sedan version of its 5 Series sibling. That said, it comes with an ecstatic performance blended with creature comforts that should make anyone shopping in the performance sedan segment fall head over heels with. Some of the highlights that underpin its hype include a powerful yet refined V8 engine, an available manual transmission system, excellent seats, and an impressive handling. The BMW M5 2017 release date should be expected late this summer according to recent reports we’ve been able to peep through.
Well, if you want a perfect scenario where you can have your cake and eat it too, the 2017 BMW M5 is perhaps the best starting point in terms of serious performance. well, it might be okay to get a satisfying experience from a performance-enhanced version of an already “A” rated sedan, but what makes it positively alluring is perhaps its perfect mix of features that make it resoundingly stately on all its vehicular facets.
Well, simply put, the formula combined features such as a well-designed five-passenger sedan with subtle styling elements, a high output engine, sticky tires, a sporty suspension system, and a reliable nameplate. The result is an all-rounded sedan that has the audacity of provoking a nod of affirmation from the meanest cynic.
Based on the 5 Series sedan, the 2017 BMW M5 offers a stupefying acceleration and a surprisingly agile sedan. Under the hood, it employs a 4.4L gasoline V8 engine that offers a ludicrous amount of power and torque rated at 560 hp @6,000 rpm and 500 pounds-feet of torque @1,500rpm respectively. Fuel economy ratings are average for its class and are rated at 14/20/17 mpg in the city/highway/combined by EPA.
Alongside the impressive output figures, the vehicle also comes with a plethora of powertrain tidbits aimed at strengthening its performance whilst on the road. Some of these include a driver-adjustable adaptive suspension system, standard torque-vectoring rear differential system, and a choice of either a six-speed manual or An M-DCT manual transmission.
The 2017 BMW M5 interior has been improved but nothing revolutionary should be expected as the changes only come to improve an already excellent sedan. Other exciting vehicles the segment offers include the Porsche Panamera, 2017 Audi RS7, Jaguar XFR-S, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, and BMW’s own 7 Series for 2017.
