Over the previous year, the BMW 5-Series went through a little 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 anticipate no notable changes when the 2019 5-Series hits showrooms.
2019 BMW 5-Series Design
At this time, we anticipate no changes to the BMW 5-Series’ looks. This shouldn’t come as much of a shock, as the midsize sedan just went through a huge redesign– substantial in BMW terms, a minimum of– in 2017. This generated a larger body, sharper styling, and a new platform. The interior also went through a huge change, getting make overs and 1.2 inches of extra rear leg space.
With the looks carrying on, we likewise anticipate no changes to the 5er’s standard features. If this shows to be the case, look for it to consist of 17-inch wheels, a moonroof, dual-zone environment 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 exact same myriad of powertrain choices as in the past. For referral, the base 530 includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
Moving into the 530e adds an electrical motor to a slightly 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 lastly, 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 current 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ score from the IIHS. Keep in mind, though, the greatest rating comes just with the optional Frontal Collision Warning with Extended Collision Mitigation that’s part of the Driver Assistance Plus II package. We expect this to all stay the exact same in 2019.
2019 BMW 5-Series Pricing & Release Date
There is no official word on the 2019 5-Series’ arrival on showroom floors, however we expect to see it in the late summer season of 2018. Offered there are no changes in shop, we anticipate pricing to stay just like the 2018 5-Series, which begins with $53,645 and peaks at $74,895 (location costs included). The 2019 5-Series’ competitors will consist of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
