The BMW 2-Series is the premium sports car that is designed to be noticed while providing phenomenal handling without breaking the bank. Whether you choose a coupe or convertible, the 2-Series is a driver’s dream, offering the ultimate in expression with the available M240i Coupe, a 335 horsepower monster that races to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds. Equip it with xDrive all-wheel drive and variable sport steering and the M240i handles like a true track veteran. Inspect the entire 2-Series lineup and take a test drive when you visit Chapman BMW on Camelback.

Small Car, Big Thrills

Although it’s on the smaller side of the BMW lineup, the 2-Series packs all the punch and luxury you’d expect from an Ultimate Driving Machine. Customize the 2-Series to your liking, adding a moonroof or an M Sport Package to personalize your new ride just a bit. A descendant of the legendary BMW 2002, the new BMW 2-Series offers the same type of driver-centered controls and performance handling that inspired the original, a treasured item in many collectors’ garages.

Coupe Starts at $34,950

Some people are amazed at how little it costs to enter the premium sports car market. The BMW 2-Series coupe offers striking lines, near perfect 50/50 weight distribution and the creature comforts that come in the rest of the premium automaker’s lineup. Whether you choose the entry level 230i coupe or the more muscular M240i, you’ll feel like you own the road every time you get behind the wheel. Double-pivot spring strut front suspension and a five-link rear suspension make this BMW hug the road around challenging corners. Adjustable power seats provide plenty of support and comfort, while an 8-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters let you decide if you want the car to do all the work or if you’d like to take matters into your own hands. An optional navigation system will help you find your way, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself driving into unknown territories just for a chance to get behind the wheel. Remember, all who wander are not lost!

Let Your Hair Flow in the Wind

Drop the top on the BMW 2-Series convertible and let your hair blow in the wind as you remember how excited you were when you first got your license. The top goes up or down in just 22 seconds, even when you’re driving at speeds of up to 30 mph. That lets you keep the rain out or work on your tan at a moment’s notice. Stability control helps you keep your vehicle on the road when things get a little hairy, and available cruise control lets you pay more attention to the scenery as the vehicle worries about keeping a safe distance between you and the car in front. See just how fun it is to drive a premium sports car when you pay a visit to Chapman BMW on Camelback.

With 2017 being the seventh straight year the company has achieved record sales, the BMW Group has cemented its position as the leading premium vehicle company in the world. The BMW brand alone grew by 4.2 percent worldwide, delivering almost 2.1 million vehicles. Led by huge increases in the 1-Series (14 percent), X-series (9.6 percent), 5-Series (6.3 percent) and the redesigned flagship 7-Series (4.5 percent), sales in 2017 bode well for the future of BMW. “We are delighted with these new record sales figures, which means the BMW Group, with its three premium automotive brands BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce, remains the world’s leading premium automotive company,” according to board member Ian Robertson. “We have continued to increase sales despite headwinds in some major markets and model changeovers of our most significant vehicles.” See why more people are flocking to the BMW brand by inspecting the inventory and taking a test drive at Chapman BMW on Camelback.

BMW Plays Leading Role in Electrified Vehicles

The BMW Group delivered more than 100,000 electrified vehicles in 2017, an increase of 66 percent from the previous year. The result is a focus on becoming the leading manufacturer of alternative energy vehicles in the world. The popular i3 experienced a 23 percent increase in 2017 and the BMW iPerformance plug-in hybrid almost doubled its output in sales from the previous year. The company expects continued growth in this field as it shoots to have no less than 500,000 BMW electrified vehicles on the road by the end of 2019. The BMW i3 underwent a redesign for the 2018 model year, adding a new sport model to its family. The BMW i3s has specifically designed front and rear end contours, a sport suspension and high performance motor. You can buy the i3 or i3s in an all-electric version, or choose to have a range extending small gasoline engine as backup.

New i8 Roadster Coming This Spring

There will be plenty of attention paid to the new BMW i8 Roadster when it comes to the showroom of Chapman BMW on Camelback this spring. The beautiful design of the i8 sports car has caught the eye of driving lovers everywhere, with its gullwing doors and dramatic lines. That look is carried over to the new Roadster, with the exception of an electrically operated soft top that quickly goes up or down as the weather and your mood dictates. The hybrid setup of the BMW i8 delivers not only exceptional performance, but also can take you up to 18 miles on all-electric driving. When that is used up, you have a gas engine and regenerative braking to charge the batteries and let you continue on your way. Stop by Chapman BMW on Camelback periodically to get a firm date on the delivery of the new i8 Roadster.

The workers at the BMW Spartanburg plant in South Carolina are busy preparing for the release of the new production X7 model late at the end of the year. Pre-production models are being assembled at the plant right now so the vehicle can undergo a series of comprehensive tests before the final version is released for public consumption. “We are proud to produce the BMW X7 here in Spartanburg, home of our X models,” said Knudt Flor, head of the Spartanburg plant. “This is a very special vehicle and our employees are looking forward to yet a further member of the X family. Together with the BMW X7, a total of five BMW X models will be exported from Spartanburg to all corners of the globe.” Stay in touch with Chapman BMW on Camelback for more information on when the first X7 will arrive on the showroom floor.

Keeping X7 Under Wraps

As common in the auto industry with the release of a new vehicle, BMW is keeping the facts about the new X7 very hush hush. The pre-production models will be cloaked in a camouflage wrap with specifically-designed stripes to help conceal the look of the latest in the Sport Activity Vehicle (SAV) lineup. The BMW X7 is produced on the same production line as the X5 and X6, with a team especially trained for the production protocol of a brand new vehicle. The Spartanburg plant is the largest BMW manufacturing facility in the world, having produced 411,000 units in 2016 and employing about 9,000 people. An additional thousand jobs are expected to be added to the plant by 2021.

A Palatial SAV for Those Who Crave Luxury

The BMW X7 will be the largest vehicle in the X lineup, with an innovative design and presence that inspires both the owners and those who hope to someday be in the driver’s seat. With an immense amount of interior room and luxury appointments fitting of a premium SAV, the X7 is ready to make a grand entrance later this year and dominate the full-size premium SAV market. Even though the X7 is on the larger side of the SAV scale, it has the handling and athleticism you’d expect from a company that produces Ultimate Driving Machines. The narrow rear end and flowing lines create an illusion of forward movement even when you’re stopped for gas. The iconic BMW kidney grille reminds everyone that this is a premium vehicle for sophisticated drivers. Step inside the cabin and you’ll be amazed by the visibility provided by the panoramic windows even as the leather seats swaddle you like a child in its mother’s arms. Prepare yourself for the next great thing in the SAV market when the new BMW X7 comes to Chapman BMW on Camelback later this year.

It has only been a year since BMW unveiled the X2 concept vehicle at last season’s Detroit Auto Show, but the production model is ready to make its debut in the annual event at the Motor City starting January 15. The BMW X2 is the newest member of the BMW X-Series family, delivering a low-slung profile that adds a distinct choice for people looking for a unique Sports Activity Coupe (SAC.) Powered by the 2.0L TwinPower Turbo engine coupled with an 8-speed automatic transmission, the new X2 goes from 0-60 mph in a startling 6.3 seconds. It will be coming to Chapman BMW on Camelback in the spring of 2018.

Modernism Meets Functionality

“The BMW X2 represents an expression of modern and extrovert vehicle dynamics,” according to BMW VP of Design, Adrian van Hooydonk. “Its standalone vehicle concept brings a new, fresh and exciting facet of the BMW to the compact segment.” With the poise of an athlete ready to compete, the newest member of the BMW X-Series is as stunning sitting still as it is powering through curves. The bold styling stands out from the crowd and makes a distinct impression whether you’re stopped for gas or leaving someone in your rear-view mirror. If there’s such a thing as a “fresh” feeling from a vehicle, the BMW X2 definitely has it. With a unique set of proportions that emphasize both the robustness of the X lineup along with the sportiness of a track-hugging race car, the BMW X2 expresses both your wild child and grown-up selves. Even though it’s a bit shorter and lower than the X1, it has the same wheelbase, giving it a more athletic look. “The BMW X2 fuses the fast-moving forms of a coupe with the robust volumes of an X model,” said Thomas Sycha, BMW compact design chief. “It was important to us to make these apparently conflicting aspects of the BMW X2 and the car’s individual character something you experience from every angle and at first glance.”

xDrive Ensures Complete Control

The BMW xDrive all-wheel drive system helps you keep control of your new X2 in all types of weather and road conditions. Along with directional stability and enhanced cornering dynamics, the xDrive system also includes Hill Descent Control, keeping you in charge when you descend steep incline. The Dynamic Stability Control system continually analyzes the road conditions and the way you are driving to provide traction and adjust the suspension for premium handling. Although all the vehicles in the BMW X-Series lineup deliver phenomenal handling and supreme sophistication, the new X2 delivers a different look and feel for people looking for something special. See the new X2 later in the spring when it comes to Chapman BMW on Camelback.

When the brand-new BMW M5 arrives on the showroom floor at Chapman BMW on Camelback next spring, it will be the most technologically advanced vehicle in the BMW M-Series lineup to date. With an increased output of 40 horsepower on the 4.4L V8 and the ability for the first time to switch from two- to four-wheel drive on the fly, the new M5 offers explosive performance and unparalleled control. A brand new 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission will make the most of the 553 pound-feet of torque, launching off the line and squeezing the most out of every engine power range, completing the run from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. As you might expect, that technology comes with a price. That number is fixed at $102,600 plus destination and handling.

Engine Receives Thorough Overhaul

When it comes to issuing a new version of any vehicle in the BMW M-Series, the engineers start with the power plant and work their way out. The 4.4L V8 engine with M TwinPower turbochargers has been the mainstay of the M5 performance sedan, so there was no need to reinvent the wheel, or in this case, the engine. Instead BMW engineers have implemented a number of enhancements to increase boost and injection pressure, and ultimately, horsepower and torque. New twin-scroll turbos were the key behind these improvements, providing shorter injection periods and improving the atomization of the fuel. Lubrication and cooling system units were also improved, keeping the engine running under optimal temperatures and moving freely. New cross-bank exhaust manifolds improve the energy flow from the exhaust to the turbines of the turbo chargers.

New M xDrive Provides Ultimate Handling

The new m xDrive system not only provides a smart all-wheel drive system that puts the drive emphasis on the rear wheels until they start to lose control, but the new version also lets the driver switch to all two-wheel drive mode. This not only improves fuel efficiency, but also gives the driver the option to perform a few drifts if he or she happens to run across an empty parking lot that’s begging for a little abuse. The M xDrive works with the Dynamic Stability Control system to help you maintain your vehicle’s stance when powering through corners or battling tough road conditions. A new dynamic chassis was developed on the M team’s racing circuit in the south of France, delivering agile and precise handling in all conditions.

Driver is in Charge of the Cockpit

The cockpit of the newest entry into the BMW M-Series is geared toward the drier, with all controls in easy ergonomic reach. As you might expect in a vehicle with this price tag, BMW has not skimped on the creature comforts and luxurious accommodations. Extended Merino leather is standard in the M5, as are heated and adjustable seats for both the driver and front passenger. The new BMW M5 is truly a marvel of modern engineering. See it next spring at Chapman BMW on Camelback.
