BMW Releases Pricing And Specs For M2-Powered X4 M40i

Pricing

Same engine, much different car.

We recently covered the emerging details about the new2016 BMW X4 M40i SUV being made by the folks over at the M Performance Division. We’re stillexcited to see how this car will perform when it (in a very short time) getsthe BMW M2 Coupe’s same motor. It’s a 3.0-liter inline-six with about 355horsepower between 5,800 and 6,000 rpm and lb-ft of torque. That seems like a good bit to beexcited about. This means that the M Performance SUV will be stronger than itspredecessor. As usual, there’s a catch, and you’ve probably guessed it by now.

This performance increase also comes with an increasedbase price: $57,800. That doesn’t include the destination charge. That's not much worsethan the current X4 xDrive28i, which comes in at $44,700 base, or the xDrive35i whichis currently priced at a starting $48,000. Production begins next month and the SUV will be on dealership floors by February 2016. Other goodies include a sport exhaust system with intelligent vale control, M Performance resonator tuning, launch control, reinforced chassis composition, slightly more power routed to the rear wheels than the front, adaptive dampers, and an 8-speed STEPTRONIC sports transmission with M Performance tuning for more aggressive gear shift programs.
