With the launch of a new, exceptionally efficient entry-level engine, BMW is extending the drive portfolio in the luxury segment. As from July 2018, a four-cylinder diesel engine will be available for the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo. Under the bonnet of the new BMW 620d Gran Turismo the 190 hp engine provides for a particularly efficient form of driving pleasure in the model, which was designed for long-distance ride comfort and versatile functionality.
The exceedingly efficient four-cylinder diesel is making a debut in the BMW 6 Series. Turbocharging with variable turbine geometry and Common Rail direct injection constitute the prerequisites for sporty power delivery and a high degree of efficiency on this 2-litre engine. Maximum torque of 400 Nm is available between 1750 and 2500 rpm, with a maximum power output of 190 hp being achieved at 4 000 rpm.
Therefore, the choice of power units available for the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo now totals 5 engines. In addition to straight six-cylinder diesel engines, a straight six-cylinder petrol engine and a four-cylinder petrol engine will be offered. The new entry-level diesel transfers power with a standard 8-speed Steptronic transmission. All suspension systems available for the BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo are also optionally available for the new model variants, including Adaptive Two-Axle Air Suspension, Integral Active Steering and the Executive Drive system with Active Roll Stabilisation. The new BMW 620d Gran Turismo sprints from 0 to 100 km/100 in 7.9 seconds. The outstanding efficiency of the new engine variant is demonstrated by a combined fuel consumption of 4.9 to 4.8 litres per 100 km and a CO2 emission level of 129 to 127 grams/km.
