2018 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo Release Date
While information about the 2018 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo (or GT, for short) was officially released today, the official world debut of this vehicle will be at the Frankfurt’s International Motor Show in September, with models arriving at dealership showrooms in November. We anticipate that this will include U.S. dealerships by the end of 2017.
Body and suspension changes on the 6 Series GT
The 2018 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo will drop approximately 330 pounds, and get a little longer and shorter than previous generations. A self-leveling air suspension will come standard at the rear axle, while an Adaptive suspension with Dynamic Damper Control will be available. This elite suspension option will allow drivers to manually raise and lower the 6 Series GT’s ride height. This model will come with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine in the U.S. that will offer 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Other engine options will be available for international release. We may see them in the U.S. later in the model year.
