BMW has released some of their plans concerning the release of the 2018 BMW M5 Sedan. Some of the spy shots have been caught with the car wearing a veiled cover. But you can tell there aren’t much improvements or changes that have been incorporated into this line.
2018 BMW M5 Sedan Changes
For this model, Beemer has released some of the rendering images of the ride, which is pretty similar to the 7 Series model. This is not surprising although Beemer can always do better than that. After all, the 7 Series is the flagship production and creation, so it is natural that the company wants to expand the line to some of the variants. The only differences for the 2018 BMW M5 Sedan will be about the taillight and the headlight, along with the changes on the front side and also the back aspect of the bumpers.
2018 BMW M5 Sedan Engine
Although it is still a rumor, this variant is said to come packing with 600 hp of power – at least. With the upgraded improvement of the V8 twin turbo engine with 4.4-liter capacity, it is pretty logical if such outcome can be reached. It is also possible that the car will be coming with a double clutch seven-speed gearbox transmission in all four wheels driving system. The company says that the rear wheel driving system, though, will remain the standard option for the ride.
What about the possibility of the hybrid variant? Although it sounds tempting, the company won’t do it in a short while. For now, they are focusing on the features of the ride which will certainly add the weight of the already existing construction. Sure, the 2018 BMW M5 Sedan will be a promising trip, but it won’t be if a hybrid system is being forced.

Several plans have been developed for this model, including a weight reduction with the CLAR modular carbon fiber platform. The V8 engine is also improved to boost power, but the addition of the new technologies will be a weighty burden for the ride. Well, Beemer can’t hope that the car will be lightweight enough for the hybrid.
The company will also offer the xDrive technology, designed to boost the performance. For this line, they won’t offer any manual transmission or whatsoever. Ever. Hopefully, this 2018 BMW M5 Sedan should be available soon in 2017 with all the promising features.
