Over the previous year, the BMW 5-Series underwent a little bit of a model shakeup, as Bimmer presented 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 shouldn’t come as much of a shock, as the midsize sedan simply went through a substantial redesign– big in BMW terms, a minimum of– in 2017. This brought in a larger body, sharper styling, and a new platform. The interior also went through a big change, gaining make overs and 1.2 inches of additional rear leg space.
With the looks continuing, we also expect no changes to the 5er’s standard features. If this proves 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 heaps more.
2019 BMW 5-Series Engine
We anticipate the 2019 5-Series to coming in with the same wide variety of powertrain choices as before. For reference, the base 530 features a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
Moving into the 530e includes an electrical 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 fans 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 abilities are strong in the present 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ score from the IIHS. Keep in mind, though, the greatest score comes only with the optional Frontal Collision Warning with Extended Collision Mitigation that’s part of the Driver Assistance Plus II plan. We anticipate this to all stay the very same in 2019.
2019 BMW 5-Series Pricing & Release Date
There is no official word on the 2019 5-Series’ arrival on display room floorings, but we anticipate to see it in the late summer season of 2018. Provided there are no changes in store, we expect pricing to stay much like the 2018 5-Series, which starts from $53,645 and peaks at $74,895 (destination fees included). The 2019 5-Series’ competition will include the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
