BMW will be pushing out two variants of its new 2014 4-Series: the 428i and 435i. The base model will be sporting 4244 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, which is being delivered from a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine. That power will go the either two rear wheels or all four. This variant, the 428i, will thrust to 60 miles-per-hour from a standstill in about 6.2 seconds.
If more power is needed, then opt for the 435i, which will have a 3.0 inline-six engine that will be pushing out 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. This variant will only be available in rear-wheel drive. BMW also mentioned the eight-speed automatic transmission, but has failed to give any hints as to manual gearboxes for either variant. They might be saving those for the M-series variant, which is both a good tease and a sad disappointment for anyone looking to save some coin.
