It looks like BMW is finally coming around to the new evolution in fuel technology. For the past several years, the automaker was banking on new clean diesel fuel technology, but it looks like the brand has given up and moved over to hybrid technology, a fact that your Stevens Creek BMW dealer is pretty content about. It looks like the industry will eventually move towards electric cars, although we won’t know the truth of that until the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf launch later this year. Still, you can bet BMW is going to stay with the market for the time being. Still, the company is well known for having some of the best engineers in the industry, so we look forward to new advancements over the next few years. For now, take a look at what BMW Woodside dealers have lined up for the 2011 model year.
BMW is really starting to take the luxury market by storm with its dedication to turning up the heat on engine technology and fuel savings. Your Stevens Creek BMW dealer was really excited to get some recognition from MSN.com for its dedication to engine technology. “BMW is hard at work saving gas. After eschewing both hybrids and electric vehicles in favor of clean-diesel engines for years, the German automaker has jumped into the battery-powered world headfirst. Consumers may have to wait awhile before seeing any of those models on the streets, though. In the meantime, a new CUV and a wave of refreshed models are hitting dealers right now.” For BMW Woodside drivers, that must be a refreshing statement to hear, especially with so many dealers fighting for a spot at the top of the food chain.
The first model that is sure to take anxious drivers by storm is the new 2011 BMW X1. The X1 is built on the 3 Series platform, which makes it one of the best models in the high-riding utility vehicle category at your Stevens Creek BMW dealer. For drivers who enjoy both utility and luxury, the X1 really puts things in perspective, with availability in both two-wheel and all wheel drive. A nice little burst of energy will be offered by the vehicle’s sweet 3.0 liter inline six engine, a machine that pumps out a pretty solid 258 horsepower for drivers who are looking to feed a little speed to their rides. BMW Woodside drivers are sure to take a heavy interest in this new crossover, which should satisfy luxury and utility car enthusiasts alike.
The second big release from the legendary luxury manufacturer is the 2011 BMW 5-Series sedan, a car that really focuses on performance while keeping the luxury aspect in mind. The vehicle’s turbocharged 3.0 liter inline six pumps out equivalent horsepower and torque, at 300 units apiece. There is an even bigger 4.4 liter engine that will help out for anyone looking for a bit more power in their ride. No matter how you slice it, BMW is definitely turning up the heat.
