BMW’s 2018 M5 is AWD Until You Say Otherwise

BMW built a lot of upgrades into the 2018 M5. For one, it’s the first to feature all-wheel drive for better traction and control. But with the press of a button, it can be switched to rear-wheel drive when you want it to really feel like an M. It’s powered by a twin turbo 4.4-liter V8 that got an increase in horsepower up to 600 plus 53-pounds more torque than the outgoing model.
