Three of the biggest shopping days of the year are the three Saturdays before Christmas. Thankfully, one of the most anticipated 2019 BMW models is making its appearance in showrooms on Dec. 8. A great holiday present in the nick of time, the latest BMW xDrive Coupe is the M850i. It has a sleek aesthetic and tight handling that delivers nifty, agile performance.
What Is xDrive?
The 2019 BMW M850i Coupe is the latest BMW to feature the incredible xDrive system. What is this exactly? A BMW xDrive Coupe is a car that uses a unique all-wheel drive technology to help return more control to the driver. Think about it this way: when you’re driving on slick and uneven surfaces, most cars will lose some control. The xDrive system fixes this by reading road conditions and your grip on any surface millisecond to millisecond.
If road conditions mean a pothole takes grip away from one tire, the xDrive system automatically lends more power to the others until you get that grip back. This means you don’t lose the road control like you would on other cars. It helps prevent sliding out on turns or bumps, especially in windy and rainy conditions or on badly kept roads. This makes it perfect for the weather Florida sometimes gets.
2019 BMW M850i Specs
The 2019 BMW M850i Coupe comes with plenty of power. The twin-turbo, 4.4-liter, 523-horsepower V8 engine delivers 553 lb-ft of torque. Launch control gives you the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in under 3.7 seconds. Its price point is expected to start at $111,900.
A range of options will be available, down to aesthetic features like carbon fiber exterior trim and performance features like M sport brakes, just to name a couple. A convertible variant is expected to join the M850i lineup in March 2019 as well.
