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 motion, we expect no notable changes when the 2019 5-Series hits showrooms.
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 just went through a big redesign– substantial in BMW terms, at least– in 2017. This brought in a bigger body, sharper styling, and a new platform. The interior likewise went through a big change, gaining make overs and 1.2 inches of additional rear leg room.
With the appearances continuing, we likewise anticipate no changes to the 5er’s basic features. If this proves to be the case, try to find 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 lots more.
2019 BMW 5-Series Engine
We expect the 2019 5-Series to roll in with the very same huge selection of powertrain choices as in the past. For recommendation, 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 adds an electric motor to a somewhat 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 present 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 anticipate this to all stay the same in 2019.
2019 BMW 5-Series Pricing & Release Date
There is no official word on the 2019 5-Series’ arrival on display room floorings, but we expect to see it in the late summer season of 2018. Given there are no changes in shop, we anticipate pricing to stay similar to the 2018 5-Series, which starts from $53,645 and peaks at $74,895 (destination charges included). The 2019 5-Series’ competition will consist of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
