Is BMW working on V6 engines? Maybe

Is BMW working on V6 engines? Maybe

According to rumours, BMW has been toying with the idea of using V6 engines. A source reports that BMW has built a V6 engine and apparently also tested it on its road machines. So, are we seeing V6 engines being used in the upcoming or existing BMW models and will the straight-six engine be discontinued? No.

The source says that the V6 engines haven’t pleased BMW engineers as the test engines failed to comply with the company’s NVH tests. It seems the V6 engine was made to satisfy internal policies. This makes  the chances of a V6 mill from BMW a distant possibility. 

This news shouldn’t scare BMW purists as the straight-six engine is here to stay and it is alleged that Mercedes and Jaguar are also working on their versions of the same. In the current market scenario, improvisation and innovation is the name of the game. With small capacity turbocharged engines and V engines being preferred by most manufacturers, BMW has stuck to its straight-six engines for performance models. However, straight-six engines are the essence of BMW powertrains, like Porsche making Boxer engines, and we believe the straight-six is here to stay.
