Over the previous year, the BMW 5-Series went through a 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 motion, 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 simply went through a big redesign– big in BMW terms, at least– in 2017. This generated a larger body, sharper styling, and a new platform. The interior also went through a huge change, acquiring makeovers and 1.2 inches of additional rear leg room.
With the looks continuing, we likewise anticipate no changes to the 5er’s standard features. If this shows to be the case, try to find it to include 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 tons more.
2019 BMW 5-Series Engine
We expect the 2019 5-Series to roll in with the very same plethora of powertrain choices as in the past. 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 adds an electric motor to a slightly de-tuned 2.0-liter engine for a total 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 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 capabilities are strong in the present 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ score from the IIHS. Remember, however, the greatest rating 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 showroom floors, however we anticipate to see it in the late summer of 2018. Offered there are no changes in store, we anticipate pricing to stay similar to the 2018 5-Series, which starts from $53,645 and tops out at $74,895 (destination costs included). The 2019 5-Series’ competition will consist of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
