BMW Announces the Debut of Two Highly-Anticipated Vehicles

January 18th, 2018 by

In December, BMW broke the news that the all-new 2018 X2 crossover SUV and 2019 i8 Coupe are making their worldwide unveilings at the 2018 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan. Both are expected to be released for customers to purchase later this spring, and prices will be announced prior to their release.

The 2018 BMW X2 SUV is highlighted by its athletic exterior, which features a new variation on the kidney-shaped grille. Propelled by a 2.0-liter TwinPower turbo 4-cylinder engine that is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the X2 produces 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Notably, The X2 includes all-wheel drive as a standard feature, a welcome move for drivers who want to ensure maximum control.

The two-door 2019 BMW i8 Coupe seats four comfortably, with the plug-in hybrid offering a range of all-electric driving of 18 miles — a 30 percent gain over the range of the current model. The i8 Coupe is capable of generating 369 horsepower, and dashing from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.2 seconds — with a top speed of 155 mph.

At BMW of El Paso, we're proud to serve drivers from the Fort Bliss, Las Cruces and Horizon City areas.
