Over the past 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 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– big in BMW terms, at least– in 2017. This generated a bigger body, sharper styling, and a new platform. The interior likewise went through a big change, acquiring make overs and 1.2 inches of additional rear leg room.
With the looks carrying on, we likewise anticipate no changes to the 5er’s basic features. If this proves to be the case, try to find 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 loads more.
2019 BMW 5-Series Engine
We expect the 2019 5-Series to roll in with the same variety of powertrain choices as previously. For reference, the base 530 comes with 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 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 existing 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. Remember, though, the greatest score 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 remain 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 floorings, however we expect to see it in the late summer of 2018. Provided there are no changes in store, we anticipate pricing to stay similar to the 2018 5-Series, which begins with $53,645 and tops out at $74,895 (destination fees consisted of). The 2019 5-Series’ competition will consist of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
