Movin' Up: 2023 BMW M-Series Vehicles to Get Price Bumps
BMW just released prices for its 2023 lineup and prices are up across the board, with the M-series high-performance vehicles getting even heftier increases.
The base manual model 2023 BMW M3 is up $2,700 compared to the 2022 model, while the M3-Competition models, with either rear-wheel or all-wheel-drive xDrive, are both up $3,700 from 2022. Both the M4 and M4 Competition models get price increases by the same amount as well. This would set the price of a base 2023 M3 at $73,795, with the M4’s base price coming in at $75,695.
If the M5 is what you desire, note that the 2023 model is $4,200 more than the 2022 model, with its new base price coming in at $108,895. The M550i with its 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 even gets an increase of $3,100 for 2023.
On the ultra-pricey range of the M lineup, BMW had previously dramatically dropped its M8 prices by up to $16,000 for the 2022 model year, but those prices are set to rise in 2023. The M8 coupe and Gran Coupes are slated to rise by $4,100, giving them $135,095 base prices for 2023. The M8 convertible is up a stout $4,200 for a base price of $144,695. Meanwhile, the Alpina B8 sees its base price bumped up by a hefty $5,000 for 2023. These prices are still considerably lower than what was charged for the 2020 model year, but they’re now less of a bargain than they were in 2022.
Moving on to the M-Series SUVs, prices are up but not quite as dramatically as is the case for the sedans and coupes. The venerable BMW X3 M, X4 M, and X5 M-series all see moderate $2,800 price increases for 2023. If the X6 M is what you desire, that gets the greatest increase of all the SUVs, going up $4,100 to a new 2023 model year base price of $114,695. Last but not least, the iX M60’s price is also going up, with its new starting point set at $109,895, or $3,800 more than was previously announced by BMW for the 2023 model year.

- Sgeffe Bronco looks with JLR “reliability!”What’s not to like?!
- FreedMike Back in the '70s, the one thing keeping consumers from buying more Datsuns was styling - these guys were bringing over some of the ugliest product imaginable. Remember the F10? As hard as I try to blot that rolling aberration from my memory, it comes back. So the name change to Nissan made sense, and happened right as they started bringing over good-looking product (like the Maxima that will be featured in this series). They made a pretty clean break.
- Flowerplough Liability - Autonomous vehicles must be programmed to make life-ending decisions, and who wants to risk that? Hit the moose or dive into the steep grassy ditch? Ram the sudden pile up that is occurring mere feet in front of the bumper or scan the oncoming lane and swing left? Ram the rogue machine that suddenly swung into my lane, head on, or hop up onto the sidewalk and maybe bump a pedestrian? With no driver involved, Ford/Volkswagen or GM or whomever will bear full responsibility and, in America, be ambulance-chaser sued into bankruptcy and extinction in well under a decade. Or maybe the yuge corporations will get special, good-faith, immunity laws, nation-wide? Yeah, that's the ticket.
- FreedMike It's not that consumers wouldn't want this tech in theory - I think they would. Honestly, the idea of a car that can take over the truly tedious driving stuff that drives me bonkers - like sitting in traffic - appeals to me. But there's no way I'd put my property and my life in the hands of tech that's clearly not ready for prime time, and neither would the majority of other drivers. If they want this tech to sell, they need to get it right.
- TitaniumZ Of course they are starting to "sour" on the idea. That's what happens when cars start to drive better than people. Humanpilots mostly suck and make bad decisions.
