Over the previous year, the BMW 5-Series underwent a bit of a model shakeup, as Bimmer introduced the 530e iPerformance and the M550i xDrive to the lineup. With the dust still settling from this motion, we anticipate no significant 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 brought in a larger body, sharper styling, and a new platform. The interior also went through a big change, acquiring make overs and 1.2 inches of extra rear leg room.
With the appearances continuing, we likewise expect no changes to the 5er’s standard features. If this proves to be the case, search for it to include 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 exact same wide variety of powertrain options as in the past. For reference, the base 530 comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 248 horse power and 258 pound-feet of torque.
Moving into the 530e includes 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 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
Safety capabilities are strong in the existing 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ ranking from the IIHS. Remember, though, the greatest ranking comes just with the optional Frontal Collision Warning with Extended Collision Mitigation that’s part of the Driver Assistance Plus II bundle. We expect this to all stay the same in 2019.
2019 BMW 5-Series Pricing & Release Date
There is no main word on the 2019 5-Series’ arrival on display room floorings, but we anticipate to see it in the late summer of 2018. Offered there are no changes in store, we expect pricing to stay similar to the 2018 5-Series, which starts from $53,645 and peaks at $74,895 (location fees consisted of). The 2019 5-Series’ competitors will consist of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
