The previous 5-series of the famous BMW brand has not been such a success. That’s why the BMW has been moving up and improving it into the 6-series and the new 2018 Gran Turismo. They hope that these vehicles will be better-selling than the 5-series models.
It can be said that the 2018 BMW Gran Turismo will represent a combination of various styles, but keeping some of the well-known BMW features. The new 6-series Gran Turismo will have the same wheel base as the outgoing model. However, it will be 1.0-inch lower and 3.8-inch longer than the previous one. The first impression is that the new Turismo appears more aggressive and sportier. Certainly, it will be better looking and more elegant than the 5-series models. It will share some of the features with the 5-series such as grille and headlights, but it will get larger corner vents and shorter air dam. The nose will be longer while the roof will appear flatter. The new 6-series models will be made of lightweight materials and generally will be lighter which will benefit their performance. Depending on the trim you choose, there will be three options when it comes to wheels – 19, 20 and 21-inch alloy wheels.
You should not expect some drastic changes when it comes to interior of the 2018 BMW 6-series Gran Turismo. Everything has been already seen in the previous BMW models. Perhaps, the only bigger change refers to the partition between the rear seats and the trunk which will be removed. The seats will be higher-positioned and there will be three optional nappa leather colors you can choose from – ivory white, black and mocha. The back seats will get some additional entertainment from the tablets that will be placed on the front seatbacks. The seats will be electronically adjustable with seat ventilation and massage option. Generally, the new Turismo will be well-equipped, spacious and comfortable. The dashboard and the center console will remain pretty much similar as those seen inside the 5-series. There will be a 10.25-inch touch screen with the latest infotainment system and many modern high-tech options.
It has been said that the 2018 BMW Gran Turismo will come in three trim options and each of them will be equipped with a different engine. The 630i GT will have a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, with 258 hp and 295 pound-feet of torque. The 640i, which will be based on the all-wheel-drive system, will come with a 3.0-liter inline-six, 340 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. The final, 630d will be using the same engine, but with 265 horsepower and 457 pound-feet of torque. All of them will probably use the eight-speed automatic transmission.
