NA to get a 6 cylinder 6
And the engines keep on ashrinkin
The current generation BMW 6 Series is being offered in the U.S. with an eight-cylinder engine only. The BMW 650i is powered by a 360 horsepower and 360 pound-feet of torque 4.8-liter V8. Both the coupe and convertible variants use the engine, but for the next generation 6 Series due out in 2011, BMW plans to introduce a new model for the North American market.
Using the 640i badge, the new model uses a six-cylinder powerplant and comes in both coupe and convertible form. While the full details are yet to be revealed, the 640i will most likely be using the six-cylinder twin-turbo engine found in the 740, N54 twin turbo inline-6, tuned to produce 315 hp and 330 lbs-ft of torque.
