A new year comes with exciting new models and updates. Check out what BMW has to offer in 2014:
M5: Production of the 2014 M5 began in July 2013, bringing with it a new Competition package that includes a 15-hp increase, 20-inch wheels, suspension tweaks, refined steering, and a sport exhaust. New LED taillights and a revised steering wheel and grille round out the M5’s updates.
M6: Available in coupe, convertible, and Gran Coupe body styles, the 2014 M6 is available in manual six-speed as a no-cost alternative to the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. A Competition package similar to the M5’s is now available.
X5: New for 2014, the latest X5 arrives with a choice of two gasoline engines: a 300-hp, 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six or a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V-8 with 445 horsepower. Both are coupled to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is available with the six-cylinder. A diesel-powered X5 will arrive in 2014, and an M version should follow soon after.
2-Series: This replacement for the 1-series coupe and convertible arrives at Kuni BMW later this month, at least in coupe form. The convertible ought to follow by the fall. This all new model is a larger body than the 1-series with similar engine options to a 3-series.
3-Series: A station wagon returns to the 3-series lineup. It is offered with the turbocharged four- and six-cylinder gas engines of the 3-series sedan and comes standard with four-wheel drive. A new 180-hp, 280-lb-ft 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel is new to the sedan and wagon lineups. The 3-series GT hatchback, an early 2014 model, carries on unchanged. The M3 is on hiatus until it returns as both a sedan (M3) and a coupe (M4) in the fall of 2014.
4-Series: Replacing the 3-series coupe, the 4-series comes packing either the four- or six-cylinder turbo engines from the 3-series lineup. The 4-series is lower, longer, and wider than its 3-series predecessor, yet is reportedly 100 pounds lighter. Cabriolet and Gran Coupe versions are sure bets.
5-Series: A 255-hp, six-cylinder turbo-diesel joins the lineup, powering the new 535d. The twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 in the 550i and 550i xDrive gets a 45-hp boost to 445. The five-door GT, now available as a rear-driver, gets the updated gas engines.
6-Series: The 2014 6-series models began hitting showrooms in June 2013, including 640i versions of the convertible, coupe, and Gran Coupe. Four-wheel drive is available on all three 6-series body configurations, as is an M Sport Edition.
i-Series: The new all-electric BMW i3 is a landmark in BMW’s mission to provide a completely sustainable, electric vehicle that still stays true to the Ultimate Driving Machine moniker. The BMW i3 is the first product of the new BMW i sub-brand, and is a truly purpose built electric car. It’s a new era for electro mobility at BMW. Look for it at Kuni this spring.
Minor trim changes: X3, X6, Z4, 7-series
Unchanged: X1, X6 M
Retired for 2014: M3, 1-series
Expect to see the 1 series return in 2015 with two extra doors and a whole new look.Share on Facebook
The BMW i8 is poised to revolutionize the hybrid sports car class in many ways. We expected amazing ecotech, however we were not expecting to be blown away by the key fob. Containing its own high resolution LCD display it is reportedly able to show charge levels, time on charge, as well as the distance the vehicle can travel before recharging/fueling. This key fob may just be smarter than your smart phone. In fact its like having a mini smart phone dedicated to your car. Wherever you may be, you are connected to your vehicle. You can even preset the temperature so it’s defrosted and warm in the winter, or cooled down and ready in the summer, all before you arrive at your car.
If the smart key is any indication about the amazing technology this car will possess, frankly we cant wait to take it for a spin.
Interested in hybrid technology currently available? We have several Active Hybrid 3 & 5 models available now!

Woodcliff Lake, N.J. – December 11, 2013, 6:10pm Eastern Time .
BMW today announced the all-new BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe models, which capitalize on the strengths of the latest 3 Series Sedan and fresh 4 Series Coupe models as their respective foundations. As the first-ever BMW M cars to feature the achievement of an engineered-in reduction in curb weight from one generation to the next, the all-new M3 and M4 stand poised to attack corners, hills, and braking zones, and will vigorously defend BMW M’s decades-strong position as segment leader around the world.
Featuring a return to the inline-6 engine format made famous by BMW M, the all-new, 3.0-liter BMW M3 and M4 engine is approximately 10 kilograms lighter than its V-8 predecessor and packs an even stronger punch. With 425 horsepower from 5,500 – 7,300 rpm, 406 lb-ft of torque from 1,850 – 5,500 rpm, and capable of 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds when equipped with the M-DCT transmission (4.1 seconds with standard 6-speed manual), the all-new BMW M3 Sedan and BMW M4 Coupe will debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and will begin sales as 2015 models in early Summer, 2014 (Editor’s notes: All specifications preliminary. Complete US-specific specs, pricing, options, and packages will be announced closer to the on-sale date).
The launch of the new BMW M3 Sedan and new BMW M4 Coupe sees BMW M GmbH revealing a new interpretation of the high-performance sports car – and carrying the BMW M philosophy over into the fifth generation of the M3. More than 40,000 examples of the fourth-generation BMW M3 Coupe were built, and now the BMW M4 Coupe is poised to continue this success story. The “M4” badge is a reference to the model series that provides the basis for the new M model – and, for the first time, the Coupe will be introduced at the same time as the four-door variant. Logic dictates the latter will be christened the BMW M3 Sedan.
The New 2015 M4 is set to release early summer 2014.

The introduction of the all-new BMW 4 Series marks the beginning of an era. It replaces the outgoing 3 Series Coupe and Convertible (E90), offering not only a sportier rendition, but also tempting features and improved fuel consumption.
The athleticism of the vehicle is highlighted by the engine, with certain models sporting 0 to 60 acceleration in as little as 5.4 seconds, the equivalent of 300 horsepower and 400 Nm of torque. Efficiency is in the equation with new features to reduce air resistance and turbulence, automatically promoting fuel conservation. The improved Navigation system interprets road conditions, traffic, and individual driving styles to create the most fuel-efficient route. SPORT Mode and ECO PRO Mode accentuate the versatility of the vehicle, allowing for either performance driving or economical driving. ECO PRO Mode can reduce fuel consumption up to 20% in certain conditions.
Comfort in the interior is a given with highly adjustable seats, backrests, and integrated headrests. Ample interior and trunk storage allows for worry-free transportation. As with all BMW vehicles, safety is made the priority in the new 4 Series. The Head-Up Display projects important information such as speed limits and Navigation information directly onto the windshield, decreasing distractions.Share on Facebook
On Monday July 29th, the production version of the highly anticipated BMW i3 was unveiled. Upholding BMW’s slogan “the ultimate driving machine”, the electric i3 doesn’t compromise design, safety, or attention to detail for sustainability.
Expected in fall 2014, the i3 is will sport a 100 mile driving range in a single battery charge. Efficiency features will extend the range of the i3 by analyzing driving style, traffic, and route topography. The vehicle can be charged to 80% of its capacity in less than 6 hours. If necessary, the Navigation can guide the driver to the closest charging station with the most efficient driving route.
The BMW i3’s carbon fiber exterior provides strength and agility without adding weight. The spacious interior is composed of sustainable resources such as naturally tanned leather and recycled plastics without compromising the BMW look and feel.
Designed primarily for urban use, the electric i3 offers the equivalent of 170 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h in 7 seconds. Its compact design will allow for parking in tight spaces and easy maneuvering.Share on Facebook
It’s official, BMW’s 4 Series is replacing the current 3 Series Coupe and Convertible. The number “4” is a first for BMW, but even those skeptical of the new Series have to admit that the new 4 Series Coupe Concept is the finest rendition of the 3 Series Coupe they’ve ever seen. Just revealed at the Detroit Auto Show, check out the images below.
What BMW has to say about the ‘4’:“The ‘4’ doesn’t just mark the start of a new cycle, it represents the zenith of a development curve. BMW has given the new model its own individual character and a standalone design – and, in so doing, has turned ‘4’ into segment shorthand for aesthetic and dynamic appeal. The latest addition to a nomenclature that sees BMW building on the fine tradition of its large BMW 6 Series and BMW 8 Series Coupes, the ‘4’ stands for greater sportiness, greater exclusivity and even clearer differentiation from the BMW 3 Series range.”
