Performance and Style Rolled Into One Package
The BMW 2-Series offers a dominating performance in a coupe or convertible that won’t break the bank. It’s true the 2-Series is the entry level into the vaunted BMW lineup, but that doesn’t mean this vehicle isn’t all heart with a ton of performance and loads of comfort. Pick the rear-wheel drive M240i coupe and you’ll get a rocket that blasts from a stop to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, even faster if you choose xDrive. The beautiful lines and low beltline ooze a feeling of power while still providing you lots of options to personalize your new BMW. If you’ve always wanted a BMW but balked at the price, now’s the time to take a test drive at Chapman BMW and see just what you’ve been missing.
BMW 2-Series Earns Record Customer Satisfaction
When Consumer Reports quizzed owners on their satisfaction with the BMW 2-Series, it earned a record 98 percent rating. The all-new M240i is a pure driver’s vehicle that delivers plenty of performance, while even the base 230i is an athletic vehicle that’s long on nimbleness with double-pivot front suspension and five-link rear suspension. As you might expect from a carmaker with the track record of BMW, each 2-Series model has the suspension tuned specifically for that vehicle, taking in power, weight and other factors to provide the optimum driving experience. BMW’s Dynamic Stability Control delivers the maximum amount of traction as you launch off the line, keeping you in charge and your vehicle heading straight down the highway.
Plenty of New Technology Available
BMW’s iDrive navigation system features a large 8.8-inch display and automatically updated maps so you’ll always have the latest route information. Add in a Wi-Fi hotspot and you turn your BMW 2-Series into a rolling Internet connection, making sure you and your passengers are always connected to the latest information and entertainment. Wireless phone charging means you don’t have to mess with clumsy cables to keep your electronics at a maximum operating level. An available Harmon Kardon sound system keeps you wrapped in symphonic sound, thanks to its 360-watt amp, 12 speakers, 5 tweeters and two central bass speakers sitting directly under the front seats.
Drop That Top and Welcome the Sun
There are few things as pleasurable as driving in Arizona on a warm spring day with the top down. The BMW 2-Series convertible lets you traverse those highways in style, allowing you to drop the top at speeds up to 30 mph. Head to Chapman BMW for a test drive and drop that top to see just how enjoyable driving a premium convertible can be.
Part Beauty, Part Beast
Take one look at BMW’s flagship 7-Series sedan and you see a sophisticated beauty with crisp lines and an athletic stance. Hop behind the wheel and step on the gas and this beauty is transformed into a beast that’s capable of jetting from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds, quickly separating you from the rest of the pack. A luxurious ride, sporty handling and an interior that’s as comfortable as your favorite chair completes the package for this Ultimate Driving Machine. See the future of luxury transportation for yourself by taking a test drive at Chapman BMW.
Pick Your Power Package
Even the least powerful BMW 7-Series still provides plenty of pop in the 740i model, with a 3.0L 6-cylinder engine that generates 320 horses and a neck-snapping 322 pound-feet of torque. You could move up a bit to the 750i, which has a 4.4L V8 capable of going from 0-60 in just 4.3 seconds, but if you’re going to do that you might as well go all the way to the M760i. That’s the model that features the TwinTurbo 12-cylinder monster engine that will deliver the most power, generating 601 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. It also produces a throaty roar that will put a smile on the 16-year-old kid that’s still lurking somewhere inside you.
Get Electrified With Hybrid Model
The BMW 7-Series also offers a hybrid option that pairs the 2.0L TwinTurbo 4-cylinder gas engine with an electric motor that runs off a powerful lithium-ion battery. The 740e Xdrive model also features BMW’s all-wheel drive system for superior handling in all types of weather and road conditions. Naturally, the 740e is also the most fuel-efficient 7-Series, earning an EPA rating of 64 MPGe.
Pick a Package to Personalize Your 7-Series
When you stop in at Chapman BMW to look over the 7-Series inventory, make sure and inquire about the special package options. One of the most popular groupings is the Rear Executive Lounge Seating package that turns your 7-Series into a comfortable living room of the highest level. The M Sport package adds an aerodynamic kit, some sport brakes and nice rims, while the Ambient Air package uses ionization technology to purify the cabin air. Personalize your new BMW 7-Series further by choosing the Individual Composition package that offers a unique selection of paint, door sills, steering wheel and badging.
Smart Chassis Does the Work
The braintrust in the BMW engineering department have been working overtime to perfect the intelligent chassis of the 7-Series. A feature called “Active Comfort Drive with Road Preview” utilizes a front camera to analyze the road and quickly adjust your damper settings to provide the most comfortable ride and best handling possible. Two-axle air suspension smooths out the bumps of the nation’s highways while still providing the responsiveness you come to expect from a BMW.
Choose From Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe
When the 2018 BMW 4-Series arrives on the lot at Chapman BMW later this spring, you’ll have the choice of three different body styles that fit almost any need or desire. “The arrival of the first BMW 4-Series marks the beginning of a new era for BMW,” said Karim Habib, BMW’s design chief. “The Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe signposted their ‘extra portion’ of dynamism, elegance and exclusiveness over the BMW 3-Series with their own designation. The model update distinguishes the 4-Series cars even more clearly from their sister model series and ensures that this ‘extra portion’ makes its presence felt both inside and out.” The 4-Series will start arriving in March, available as 430i and 440i xDrive models.
4-Series Success Started in 2013
When BMW released the first 4-Series Coupe in September 2013, customers were wowed with the two-door’s beauty and performance. A wide stance and longer wheelbase add to the athletic silhouette of the 2018 model, which remains a fun and luxurious sports machine. The Coupe, Convertible and four-door Gran Coupe all take their styling from the Concept 4-Series Coupe that was introduced to the auto world during the show season of 2012. Hexagon LED headlights, a massive air intake and LED tail lights are all distinctive and reminiscent of earlier models. “The maxim guiding the BMW 4 Series model update was ‘stick to the proven formula but add extra richness to the car’s character,’” said head of exterior design Domagoj Dukec. “That’s why the exterior design shines the spotlight most brightly on the dynamic and elegant qualities of the BMW 4-Series family.”
All-wheel Drive and Stiffer Suspension Add Control
You can choose to add all-wheel drive to any of the 2018 BMW 4-Series models, offering superior handling and better control during inclement weather. BMW engineers have revised the suspension system, offering advanced technology to adjust the dampers and steering as road conditions and speed change. The result is reduced roll and better handling through sharp turns. Choose the 430i and you get a TwinTurbo engine with a healthy 248 horsepower. Step up a bit to the 440i and the horsepower increases to 320.
Plenty of Technology and Comfort on Interior
When you buy a BMW you expect the very best in comfort and sophistication. The new 4-Series does not disappoint. An available multifunctional instrument display lets the driver choose the vehicle data he or she wants to see. Wireless smart phone charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot means you and your passengers are always connected and ready to communicate with the outside world. Stay in touch with Chapman BMW to take a test drive of the 2018 4-Series when the new models arrive this March.
Luxury Just Got Serious
For those looking for a performance vehicle with some serious luxury, it’s time to head to Chapman BMW and explore the BMW 6-Series inventory. Beautiful and sophisticated are two words that come to mind when describing the new 6-Series, a popular choice for people seeking a premium sports machine. From the iconic BMW front end your eye will follow the elongated flow of the profile, admiring the muscular stance of this Ultimate Driving Machine. The dramatic curves of the 6-Series didn’t happen by accident; they are the result of painstaking attention to detail from the engineering and design team, melding the exterior and interior into one eye-popping machine.
How Fast Do You Want to Go?
Choose the 3.0L Twin Turbo 6 cylinder engine and you can take your 6-Series from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, which might be a bit of a shock for the kid in the souped-up Civic sitting next to you at the stop light. The tremendous power works together with an intelligent chassis that continually adjusts the damper of your shock absorbers as road conditions and your speed changes. This, in conjunction with BMW’s near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution, helps keep you in control whether you’re on the way to work or testing your new 6-Series on a weekend run.
Coupe, Gran Coupe or Convertible? The Choice is Yours
The BMW 6-Series offers a nice selection of models depending on your needs. If you’re one of those people who think that two doors is the perfect number for a car, the Coupe and Convertible would be a smart choice. If hauling the kids to soccer on Saturdays or taking a turn in the office car pool are part of your agenda, perhaps the Gran Coupe 4-door would be more to your liking.For the ultimate in luxury, power and pure exhilaration, head to Chapman BMW and check out the Alpina B6 Gran Coupe. It takes power, design and comfort to a whole new level.
This is Your Car. Make it Personal
Take advantage of the BMW Individual composition experience to make your new 6-Series reflective of your personality. With distinct personal touches in badging for both the outside and interior, you get the ability to design your new BMW as an extension of your better self. Additional packages let you enhance your BMW 6-Series experience with driver assistance features, black accents and a super premium Bang & Olufsen sound system.
Sixth Consecutive Year for Sales Record
People continue to love the BMW lineup, as evidenced by a worldwide sales increase in 2016 of 5.3 percent over the previous year to set a company record. “As our model lineup has expanded, so have our sales,” according to BMW board member Dr. Ian Robertson. “Despite headwinds in some markets, our police of balanced global sales has paid off, as we increased our worldwide sales month by month.” Dr. Robertson noted a steady increase in the delivery of electric and hybrid vehicles, which bodes well for the future of transportation. See why BMW continues to be a popular premium brand by taking a trip to Chapman BMW.
BMW X Family Leads the Charge
SUVs are popular in America and all across the globe, so it’s no real surprise that one out of every three BMWs sold in 2016 was from the X lineup. The model increased sales by 22.3 percent over 2015, delivering almost 650,000 vehicles worldwide. The 2-Series (24.8 percent) and 7-Series (69.2 percent) also saw significant sales jumps over the previous year. BMW executives expect the new 5-Series to have a similar sales bump this year. Look for it to come to Chapman BMW this February.
Electrified Vehicles Top 60,000 in Sales
No one expected the world to quickly switch from the comfortable familiarity of gasoline engines to the future of electrified vehicles, but BMW did well in 2016. The company has a total of seven different hybrid or electric vehicles, accounting for 62,000 sales last calendar year. “The addition of new models has clearly driven our sales of these innovative vehicles and we were delighted to see the 100,000th electrified BMW hit the road in November,” Dr. Robertson said. He noted that the markets that have a strong charging infrastructure did the best in electrified vehicle sales.
South Carolina Plant Has Strong Year
Coinciding with the strong sales year of the X model SUVs, the South Carolina X vehicle assembly plant also had a record year. The plant recorded its largest annual production, manufacturing 411,171 X models. Last year was a very successful year for Plant Spartanburg,” BMW manufacturing CEO Knudt Flor said. “Our X models continue to be extremely popular worldwide, and I’m proud of the commitment shown by our team of dedicated associates to deliver premium quality vehicles for our customers.” The X lineup is a collection of sophisticated utility vehicles that are not only functional, but are a heck of a lot of fun to drive. See how much fun an SUV can be when you head over to Chapman BMW for a test drive.
