Watch the Upcoming BMW M5 And it’s All New M xDrive in Action
If you’re looking for the “Ultimate Driving Experience” you’d have a tough time beating the cars produced by BMW, especially considering the company’s slogan is “The Ultimate Driving Machine.” And if you’re looking for the ultimate BMW, look no further than the M division. One of the most popular M models is the beloved M5 and this year we’re expecting to see the sixth generation of the M5 released. And it’s coming with a feature that has some BMW purists up in arms because it completely changes the tried and true formula BMW M cars have become famous for.
That feature is the all new M xDrive which is a sporty version of the xDrive all-wheel drive system. To some, an M5 with all wheel drive is complete blasphemy. However, logic tells you that if you can have the extra traction of all four wheels providing power it seems like a no brainer right? Especially when the new M5 is estimated to put out as much as 600hp.
It’s a heated debate that will continue on until the car is finally released later on this year. Only time will tell whether it’s a great idea or a terrible one. Personally, I think it’ll be great. But I guess we will have to wait and see how it all plays out.
