In a year packed with hot new arrivals, we’re looking to the future to see what else our favorite brand delivers. Will there be a 2021 BMW M3? This model is a legend in terms of performance and power – and many are curious to see what, if anything, BMW will change. To end the suspense: yes, there will be a new BMW M3. What do we know about it at this point?
The 2021 BMW M3 is expected to boast a 3.0 liter twin turbo inline six engine. It is not quite the same engine that powers the previous generation. Instead, the 2021 version will feature BMW M’s S58, which has a larger bore and shorter stroke (thus more revs). It looks like the M3 will churn out 473 horses and 442 lb-ft of torque (bumped to 503 hp with the Competition model).
BMW has reported that the new M3 will offer a “pure” manual gearbox option and rear wheel drive, though we expect high end versions with a fast-shifting auto transmission, dual clutch option, and all wheel drive. BMW has rolled out a “four tiered” structure for its models, and this will continue with the M3 to include the base M3, Competition, CL, and CSL versions – as well as sedan, coupe, and convertible body styles.
Like many luxury automakers, BMW is secretive about its new models. We’ve seen shots (and even audio) of the new M3. Though camouflaged, it looks like we will enjoy a sporty, athletic body, sleek lines, and possibly, oversized kidney grilles and design elements from the Concept 4.
Any way you slice it, the 2021 BMW M3 will certainly live up to the power and prestige of the brand’s name. Visit Braman BMW in Jupiter to learn more.
