Over the previous year, the BMW 5-Series went through a little a model shakeup, as Bimmer introduced the 530e iPerformance and the M550i xDrive to the lineup. With the dust still settling from this movement, we expect no notable changes when the 2019 5-Series strikes display rooms.
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 huge redesign– substantial 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, gaining make overs and 1.2 inches of extra rear leg space.
With the looks continuing, we also expect no changes to the 5er’s standard features. If this shows 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 same plethora of powertrain choices as in the past. For reference, the base 530 includes a 2.0-liter four-cylinder that cranks out 248 horse power and 258 pound-feet of torque. Moving into the 530e includes 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 lovers 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 current 5-Series, thanks to its Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS. Remember, however, the highest ranking comes only with the optional Frontal Collision Warning with Extended Collision Mitigation that’s part of the Driver Assistance Plus II plan. We expect this to all stay the exact 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 summertime of 2018. Offered there are no changes in store, we expect pricing to stay just like the 2018 5-Series, which starts from $53,645 and peaks at $74,895 (destination costs consisted of). The 2019 5-Series’ competitors will consist of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the Audi A6, and the Cadillac CTS.
