2022 BMW 4 Serires Gran Coupe Performance

2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe Shows Its Face

Anxiously awaiting the BMW M4 Gran Coupe release date? You’re not alone because this roomier version means the same style you’ve always wanted with a bit of extra space. Fortunately, you don’t have to wait long as the M4 Gran Coupe release date is set for  August of 2021. 

A Little Extra Room?

The Gran Coupe is based on the sedan model, but it sports an extra 5.9 inches in length. It’s also a bit taller, adding 2.1 inches to the overall model, and a bit wider with an extra inch to spare.

More than that, though, it comes with a wheelbase that’s 1.8 inches longer than the first-gen version of this vehicle. All of that means a much larger luggage compartment as well as the two extra doors you’d expect from the Gran Coupe.

The inside may be a bit different at a glance, too, as the center console is a little unique. The digital instrument cluster and touchscreen display are nothing new, though, and you can access natural-speaking voice activation.

Don’t worry, though. None of that extra space affects the aerodynamic performance of this vehicle, as the active air-flap control system and the streamlined undertray mean excellent efficiency. BMW numbers have it at just a .28 drag coefficient. 

Added Power

With the Gran Coupe, you’ll be able to choose between a rear-wheel drive 430i and the all-wheel drive M440i xDrive.

The 430i runs on a four cylinder engine that produces 255 HP and 295 lb/ft of torque. Should you choose to go with the M440i, you’ll find quite a bit more to offer as it comes with six powerful cylinders and the ability to produce 382 hp and 369 lb/ft of torque.

It also has a bit of a surprise as it has a 48-volt hybrid system that delivers 11 horsepower of assistance. Both include an eight speed automatic gearbox. 

You’ll be able to get adaptive dampers with either model, but even if you don’t add them to the package, you can expect to see the lift-related dampers the 3-series offered.

Should you select the M Sport package, you can expect firmer dampers as well as 19-inch wheels. If you add the Dynamic Handling pack, you’ll get adaptive dampers, larger brakes, and an active locking rear differential. 

The 430i has a current MSRP of $45,795 while the M440i has an MSRP of $58,995. To learn more about this beautiful model, contact us today

Red 2022 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe

2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe Review, Pricing, and Specs

The 2022 BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe has been spotted by car aficionados, and the news is that this luxury vehicle will be a 4-door hatchback not much different from the earlier 4-Series Coupe.

Secretly obtained images obtained reveal that the 2022 BMW Gran Coupe appears to have the same frontal design with large vertical kidney grilles.

The real details will only be available when the luxury car arrives in the US sometime in the middle of 2021.

A Few Cosmetic Changes

After years of complaints about its cars, BMW is now playing it very smart and has finally found a formula that works and is sticking to it. The hardware that worked with the 3-Series is now being carried over to the 4-Series. 

The Grille

Even though there is a lot of talk about the vertical kidney grille, this is not something new. BMW had the same features in the iconic 328i nearly 50 years ago; the only difference now is that the grille is slightly bigger.

The reason for the bigger grille is that the latest 2022 BMW Gran Coupe is a powerful car that needs extensive cooling. The other difference between the 3-Series is that the 4-Series will be distinct with its 4 door style.

The Hatchback

While the external design of the 2022 BMW Gran Coupe appears more like a coupe, it also has some hatchback features in the rear which is very similar to the 3-Series sedans.

Other than these minor cosmetic changes, the Gran Coupe has taillights and headlights very similar to the convertible and the coupe. 

Under the Hood

BMW knows what works, so the powertrain is identical to previous models. The 430i will have a turbocharged 2.0 liter engine and the M440i will come standard with a turbocharged 3.0 liter inline-six.

Hop In

The exact indoor features of the BMW M4 Gran Coupe haven’t yet been released, but there aren’t a lot of changes that are likely to be made inside. You can expect a buttonless interior and two large screens on the dash to accommodate the infotainment system and the instrument gear. BMW is moving away from traditional buttons to provide a clean, sleek look. 

You may also notice a bit of extra space in the back of this vehicle. Thanks to the hatchback designs, any passengers pushed to the back will have a bit more space with this one. 

What’s It Going to Cost You?

BMW hasn’t released any price details for the 2022 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe but what is known is that you can expect to add a bit more money for four doors. Based on the current coupe price, it is expected that the Gran Coupe will probably start at $47K.

BMW 440i

How much is the BMW 4 Series Coupe M440i?

The 2021 BMW m440i will soon be available in North America. This luxury sports car has undergone significant changes compared to the older 4 series models.

The biggest change in the m440i is the so-called “large-mouth” “butterfly wings” grille. There is more to the car, however than just the frontal aesthetics.

The Pro model has all the finer things found in the standard M sport model, plus it comes with an 8-speed Steptronic sports transmission enabled with sprint function.

This means the car will have excellent acceleration and the beautiful roaring sounds of a powerful roadster.

The 2021 BMW m440i will also have M sports brakes and state-of-the-art Harman. To spice up the looks, the buyer will have an option to add a black 20-inch M Performance light alloy wheel, a carbon fiber grille, black aero pieces, a front splitter, and the iconic M performance tailpipes.

At the same time, the manufacturers have added a touch of class to the interior.  You will have a choice of M performance steering wheel wrapped in carbon fiber and suede, a carbon-fiber trim, and door sill plates. 

Now to the more substantial parts of this amazing athletically built vehicle, the M 440i will be powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six, which will give it close to 382 hp.

To get the luxury car moving will be a 48-volt hybrid system that will provide a tiny boost of power at low speeds.

The one universal feature with all M 440i models will be the all-wheel-drive system, but BMW has promised that a rear-wheel-drive model will be released during the latter part of 2021.

While the regular M4 will come with an option for a manual transmission, the M440i will only have an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Road trials suggest that the M440i is as quick as a sprinter off the blocks, has excellent handling on curves, and is comfortable to drive.

So far, the only two negatives of the M440i include the distinct grille and the powerful hypersensitive brakes, which cause the car to suddenly slow way down.

The M440i is not yet available in North America, but it is expected to arrive anytime this summer.

While BMW has not yet released the exact price details, insiders indicate that the BMW m440i price will have a base of $59,495.

By the time you drive the car out of the dealership, expect to spend an extra $5K-$10K for some seriously upgraded options. Its main competitors will be Lexus, Audi, and Porsche.

White BMW 4 Series M440D Rear

BMW 4 Series to get M440d and 430d models this month

With the introduction of the BMW 440D and BMW 430D series, the automaker is setting a new bar for luxury vehicles.

BMW is gradually moving away from its classic 3 series saloon by not only having an improved design but a car that is more sleek and aerodynamic. The M4 series will be a high-performing vehicle that will be available as a convertible or coupe.

Both the BMW 440D and 430D will be available later this year. While both cars have many similar features, the 430D is a toned-down version of the 440D; the vehicle has slightly less power and fewer luxury options, but overall just as elegant and refined as the 440D.

What do the BMW 440D and 430D have to offer? The first thing is the new redesigned grille with its sleek 3D mesh structure and pleasing aesthetics.

The BMW 400 series will be slightly larger and wider than the 300 series, which will give it a more aerodynamic profile.

This has been accomplished by having a lower build, stiffer chassis, newly designed suspension architecture, and 50:50 weight distribution.

BMW engineers believe that this will also make the car more stable along with sharp corners. Aside from the grille, the BMW 440D and 430D will have the traditional 2-door configuration with slender pillars, short overhangs, and long doors with frameless windows.

There will be no bombshells with the power; the 400 series will have a 3.0-liter turbocharged 369HP 8-speed automatic transmission, combined with a 48-volt starter-generator to increase the efficiency but will also come with an additional 11-horsepower kick at the startup line.

The 430D and 440D will not be electric, unlike the M440i. But rest assured, the 440D is a powerful vehicle that reaches 0-62 mph in only 4.7 seconds.

The inside of both cars will be roomier than the 3 series and like previous models will have a driver-centric digital dashboard. Besides the elegant steering wheel and sports seat, the 440D and 430D will have only two seats.

Novel safety features in the 440D and 430D include lane departure warning, forward collision warning with pedestrian detection, and city collision mitigation. Other options will include a wireless device charging system, a head-up display, and an iWi-Fi hotspot.

The 440D and 430D series will be available as an M Sports Package Pro that will come with 19-inch alloys, a sports transmission, and state-of-the-art engine entrainment. Other options will include laser headlights and a glass roof.

The price of the 430D and 440D has not been revealed but will most likely be starting at a base price of $47K and $58K, respectively. By the time all the luxury features are added, the cars will probably cost an additional $10-$15K.
