Over the past year, the BMW 5-Series went through a little a model shakeup, as Bimmer introduced the 530e iPerformance and the M550i xDrive to the lineup. With the dust still settling from this movement, we expect no noteworthy changes when the 2019 5-Series strikes display rooms.
2019 BMW 5-Series Design
At this time, we expect no changes to the BMW 5-Series’ looks. This should not come as much of a shock, as the midsize sedan simply went through a big redesign– big in BMW terms, a minimum of– in 2017. This generated a bigger body, sharper styling, and a brand-new platform. The interior likewise went through a big change, getting make overs and 1.2 inches of additional rear leg space.
With the looks carrying on, we likewise anticipate no changes to the 5er’s basic features. If this shows to be the case, try to find it to consist of 17-inch wheels, a moonroof, dual-zone climate control, an 8.8-inch digital instrument cluster, LED headlights leatherette upholstery, a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and lots more.
2019 BMW 5-Series Engine
We anticipate the 2019 5-Series to roll in with the same huge selection of powertrain options as before. For referral, the base 530 comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Moving into the 530e adds an electric motor to a somewhat de-tuned 2.0-liter engine for an overall output of 248 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. Next up is the 540 with its 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder that produces 335 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.
Diesel lovers can snag the 540d xDrive and its turbocharged six-cylinder that produces 261 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque. And finally, there’s the big-daddy 550 with its 4.4-liter turbocharged V8 that injects 456 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque.
2019 BMW 5-Series Safety
Security capabilities are strong in the present 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. Remember, though, the highest score comes only with the optional Frontal Collision Warning with Extended Collision Mitigation that’s part of the Driver Assistance Plus II plan. We expect this to all stay the very same in 2019.
2019 BMW 5-Series Pricing & Release Date
There is no main word on the 2019 5-Series’ arrival on display room floors, however we expect to see it in the late summertime of 2018. Provided there are no changes in shop, we anticipate pricing to remain just like the 2018 5-Series, which begins with $53,645 and tops out at $74,895 (destination charges included). The 2019 5-Series’ competition will include the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
