Over the previous year, the BMW 5-Series underwent 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 motion, we expect no significant 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 should not come as much of a shock, as the midsize sedan just went through a huge redesign– big in BMW terms, a minimum of– in 2017. This generated a larger body, sharper styling, and a new platform. The interior likewise went through a huge change, gaining 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, 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 very same myriad of powertrain options as before. For referral, 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 electric 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 enthusiasts 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 present 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ ranking from the IIHS. Remember, however, the highest rating comes only 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 very same in 2019.
2019 BMW 5-Series Pricing & Release Date
There is no official word on the 2019 5-Series’ arrival on showroom floorings, but we expect to see it in the late summertime of 2018. Given there are no changes in store, we anticipate 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’ competition will include the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
