BMW M5 2013

BMW announced the upcoming 2013 BMW M5 at the Detroit Auto Show 2012. The all-new BMW M5 2013 is offered with a 6-speed manual transmission option due to its popularity in US customers. The 2013 M5 will go on sale in late summer 2012. Pricing, options and specifications will be released closer to the on-sale date.

Detroit, MI – January 9, 2011…On the occasion of the North American International Auto Show, BMW confirmed today that it will offer a 6-speed manual transmission on the North American version of the upcoming 2013 BMW M5. The 6-speed manual will be available from the start of production this summer and will be offered as a no-cost alternative to the standard 7-speed M-Double Clutch Transmission (DCT). The manual gearbox was a popular choice for U.S. customers of the previous generation M5 and continues to be a unique offer in the segment.

Though the 6-speed gearbox has one less gear than the M-DCT transmission, the ratios have been optimized for acceleration, flexibility and fuel economy. Final drive ratio and special M Active differential are maintained. The new transmission is mated to a short throw shift linkage topped with a black leather backlit shift knob.

The 2013 M5 will arrive at US BMW Centers in late summer 2012. Pricing, options and specifications will be released closer to the on-sale date.
