2016 Denver Auto Show Offers Sneak Peek Of Newest Bmw Models
The 2016 Denver Auto Show kicks off at 5:00pm on Wednesday, March 16th at the Colorado Convention Center. Running through 6pm on Sunday, March 20th, the annual event is the perfect way for you to get up close and personal with BMW’s 2016 lineup, including the all-new and much anticipated BMW M2! Stay tuned to our Schomp BMW Facebook page this Wednesday, March 16th for an exclusive behind-the-scenes sneak peek of BMW’s display.
Building on the successes of its M235i sibling, the 2016 BMW M2 offers unparalleled performance thanks to a wider track featuring a lightweight aluminum suspension, manual gearbox with rev-matching technology, fully variable Active M differential, and Nurburgring tested M compound high-performance brakes. Beating under the hood is a 365 HP twin-power-turbocharged six-cylinder engine, the M2 rockets from 0-60 MPH in as little as 4.2 seconds. 343 lb-ft of torque is available between 1,400 and 5,560 RPM, with an overboost function able to temporarily channel up to 369 lb-ft for quick acceleration runs.
Also present will be the 2016 BMW X4 M40i, featuring a free-revving BMW-M-developed motor, specific chassis tuning, and class-leading performance characteristics. Under the hood, the 2016 BMW X4 M40i sports a 3.0-L inline-six-cylinder engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Summoning 355 HP and 343 lb-ft of torque, the X4 M40i clocks the 0-60 MPH sprint in a class-leading 4.7 seconds. On the road, a specially-tuned sports chassis provides enhanced driving dynamics over the standard X4. Features such as increased camber on the front axle and M-Performance-tuned adaptive dampers ensure positive handling and stability.
Other 2016 Denver Auto Show highlights for BMW will include the 2016 i3 with a new “fluid black” exterior, the engaging and innovative 2016 BMW 750Li xDrive, and the all-new 2016 BMW X1, which just won U.S. News and World Report’s “Best for Families” award within its class.
