AutoComplete: BMW brings a little M Performance to the X5 and X7
Here's what's making news on road show.
BMW is giving its two biggest SUVs a big kick in the shorts with the help of its in performance division.
The new m 50.
I trim level for both the X5 and X7 features 523 horsepower and over 550 pound feet of torque Plus a whole host of suspension and drive line tweaks.
Now, this isn't a full fat M car like the X5M, but it's not far off, and it will likely be a lot nicer to live with on real roads.
Prices start in the $80,000 range for the X5 and just a hair under $100K for the X7.
There was a time not that long ago when you have to option up to the top of the Chevy Silverado family tree if you want to access to that sweet sweet 6.2 liter VA.
Apparently though enough of you complained and now Chevrolet has democratized the engine for 2020 Offering it in more than half of the Silverado's many trim levels.
Even cooler is the addition of an optional performance package that thanks to a new intake and exhaust will get you an additional 15 horsepower and 9 foot pounds of torque.
Self-driving cars are getting package delivery and logistics company is all hot and bothered because they could be a way to reduce costs and the need for human labor.
The problem is that self driving cars can't exactly drop a package on your doorstep, but Ford and a company called Agility Robotics think that they have a solution for that, and it's called Digit.
Digit is a cute little green robot thing, that can take a package and physically walk it up to your door, don't expect to see digit and his lighter for head trotting up your driveway anytime soon, but it's kind of a cool idea.
