2015 BMW M4 Review, Price and Pictures – Welcome to Neocarsuv.com, we will provide the latest information about the BMW M4 Concept. 2015 BMW M4 changes is one brand new car from Audi that was released in 2015. We will also review about the price, interior, exterior and engine of the 2015 BMW M4 Release Date.
Maybe you’ve heard about BMW’s new naming strategy. If not, here’s the short version: Sedans get odd numbers while coupes and convertibles get evens. So when the new M3 debuts in January with four doors, coupe enthusiasts needn’t worry: The two-door 2015 BMW M4 bows at the same time. A convertible is also due.
The all-new BMW 4-Series recently took the place of the previous 3-Series coupe, and now, it has its high-performance M variant: the new 2015 BMW M4. So what makes the new M4 special enough to deserve the vaunted M badge?… Many, many things, but foremost among them is a new, potent twin-turbocharged engine.
Stylistically, the new BMW M4 offers the same core proportions and characteristics as the 4-Series, but with the dial turned up to 11. A bump on the hood hints at the extra power underneath, while a much more aggressive and aerodynamically effective set of body work at the nose, sides, and tail give it a track-bred look. Flared fenders wrap around larger wheels and grippier tires, and there’s even a carbon fiber roof option.
The V8 is gone. Instead, the M4 will get BMW’s classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder, this one a twin-turbocharged mill generating 426 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. The introduction of turbocharging marks a significant departure for a nameplate with a long tradition of high-revving, naturally aspirated engines. The new engine will still rev high up to 7,600 rpm, BMW says although peak power arrives around 5,000 rpm and peak torque around 2,000 rpm. The new turbo-6 is also 22 pounds lighter than the V8 it replaces.

2015 BMW M4 Interior
Maximizing the advantages of the new powertrain, BMW has done a lot of work on the M4’s chassis as well. Losing weight was a primary focus in development, and the end result is a car that’s about 176 pounds lighter than the previous M3 coupe. Curb weight for the 2015 M4 lists at just under 3,300 pounds, though that will vary depending on options and extras. BMW saved the weight through extended use of aluminum and carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) throughout the car’s structure.
2015 BMW M4 Exterior
With unique front and rear aluminum suspension components, 19-inch forged alloy wheels, staggered wheel widths and optional six-piston carbon-ceramic brakes, the M4 sits nearly 2 inches wider than the 435i coupe. The wider track means unique body panels all around, including a hood and front quarter panels made of aluminum, and a carbon-fiber roof. Only the door panels are shared with the 4 Series.
The 2015 BMW M4 also gets electric-assist steering similar to that fitted on the new 4 Series (although with high-performance tuning). It’s one of the many components that M Division engineers use to meet ever-tightening European and U.S. fuel economy standards. Comfort, Sport and Sport+ modes allow drivers to dial up increasing amounts of steering effort. The electric-assist steering that started in the new 3 Series has drawn complaints from the BMW faithful, though we suspect only the most astute M3/M4 buyer will perceive a real dynamic difference. An optional Adaptive M suspension offers the same three modes for relaxed driving or more aggressive street and track settings.
2015 BMW M4 Engine
Powering the BMW M4 Convertible is a 425 horsepower 3.0-liter M TwinPower Turbo inline six engine achieving peak torque of 406 lb-ft and 0-60 mph in 4.4 seconds (4.2 seconds with the optional seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission). The BMW M4 Convertible will arrive in U.S. showrooms in summer 2014.
Under the hood you’ll find a new 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged engine. If that sounds familiar, it’s because BMW used a similar engine in the previous generation of the BMW 3-Series. However, in the new M4, the entire unit has been upgraded and improved, earning a new name (S55) and hugely upgraded power ratings. BMW says the new engine turns out 425 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque at peak–but those peaks are broad, indeed. Maximum power output is available not just at the upper end of the tachometer, but from 5,500 rpm all the way to 7,300 rpm. Peak torque hits at just 1,800 rpm and remains until 5,500 rpm.
If that 7,300-rpm mark sounds high for a turbocharged engine, that’s because it is, and it’s not even the new S55’s maximum rpm; it can hit 7,600 rpm at the limit. Despite the sky-high rev-limit, the 2015 M4’s top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
A choice of a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed M-DCT dual-clutch transmission is available, though whichever you’ll choose, the M4 is rear-drive only. Another all-new feature for the M4 is an electronically controlled Active M limited slip differential, which can vary the percentage of lockup between the rear wheels from 0 to 100 in mere milliseconds.
