Over the previous year, the BMW 5-Series underwent a little 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 noteworthy changes when the 2019 5-Series hits 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 just went through a huge redesign– substantial 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, getting new looks and 1.2 inches of extra rear leg space.
With the appearances continuing, we also expect no changes to the 5er’s basic features. If this proves to be the case, look 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 tons more.
2019 BMW 5-Series Engine
We anticipate the 2019 5-Series to roll in with the same huge selection of powertrain choices as previously. For reference, the base 530 includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
Moving into the 530e adds an electrical motor to a somewhat 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 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+ 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 bundle. We anticipate 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 season of 2018. Given there are no changes in shop, we expect pricing to remain just like the 2018 5-Series, which starts from $53,645 and peaks at $74,895 (destination fees consisted of). The 2019 5-Series’ competitors will include the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
