We recently learned that the often-maligned BMW 5 Series GT would be given a name and design change. The future replacement for the Bavarian Pontiac Aztec, as it’s often called, will soon be the BMW 6 Series GT, a much more coupe-like, sportier car. With a more sweeping roofline and more hatchback-like trunk, the 6 Series GT should be far better looking than the somewhat dumpy-looking 5 Series GT. But now, we’ve come across some new information about engine, equipment and package options.

As far as engines go, there will be the typical suite of BMW’s diesel and petrol engines. For diesel power, there will be a BMW 620d, 630d and top-of-the-line M650d xDrive, the latter using BMW’s newest B57 quad-turbo engine. For petrol power, you can choose from the BMW 630i, 640i and M650i xDrive. The latter will get the same 4.4 liter twin-turbocharged V8 as the new G30 BMW M550i xDrive. The could also be three different plug-in hybrid variants, the BMW 630e, 640e and 650e iPerformance.

As far as packages go, the usual applies here as well. An M Sport package will pack the same sort of aerodynamic kit as the new 5 Series but will come with some cool interior bits, such as Alcantara seats. Two different kinds of air suspension will be available, with one called “Executive Drive”, whatever that means. The 6er GT will also get BMW’s Active Integral Steering, or rear-wheel steering, as an option. Remote Parking will also be an optional feature on the 6 Series GT.

Expect the BMW 6 Series GT to be a sportier, more stylish and more technological car than its 5 Series predecessor. The 5er GT never quite received the love that BMW had hoped it would, so it makes for the Bavarian brand to try and make it a bit more appealing. The 5 Series GT was a low-volume model before, so why not make it an exciting low-volume model?

    Will there be new 6 coupé(s) or not?

    Last week this was said on BMW blog:

    “Knowing that BMW is working on two different coupes and convertibles, the 6 Series and 8 Series, it can be hard to tell which this is. However, our sources are telling us that this is a BMW 8 Series Convertible and these sources aren’t really ever wrong.”

    It’s confusing because previously it was said on here that the GT was going to be the only 6 Series.

    STOP SAYING 6 SERIES GT. BMW ARE READING THIS LIKE WTF. ITS A 5ER GT. WHY WOULD BMW HAVE THE CODE NAMES READY FOR THE 6ER COUPE AND CAB? THATS BECAUSE A 6ER IS COMING END OF STORY SICK OF SEEING THIS BS ARGH THIS CAR WILL BE A 5ER GT

  3. Dailybimmer says:

    I think the car won’t look anything like that. This rendering looks like a style mix between 5er G30 from the front and 4er gran coupe from the rear end. Why namIng this one 6er GT? I think it has to do with the higher positioning of the 6er coupe into 8er coupe etc. Bmw thinks it has a 911 competitor with the M4. Minewhile the 6er coupe moves up to 8er to compete with the S class coupe.

    LOL More poop-shaped cars from BMW.

    • UuAA says:

      If they want to call it series 6 they should made it more Panamera like…this design has very little “driving machine” DNA…

  5. John says:

    Does this mean they can charge more money for it?
