2021 BMW 5 Series release date anticipation of new BMW 5 series redesign

2021 BMW 5 Series Release Date

There’s been a lot of noise in anticipation of the 2021 BMW 5 Series release date, including leaks that have given us a sneak peak at the BMW 5 Series redesign. Despite the leaked photos, BMW went ahead and put up a teaser of the upcoming model online. The teaser showcased the new LED signature light pattern.

About the BMW 5 Series Redesign

The leaked materials are two images which gave us a close look at the front and rear-end design of the BMW 5 Series LCI. The photos appear to be part of an official press package and features the BMW 5 Series G30 LCI with the M Sport package.

As testing is being finalized for the BMW 5 Series redesign, we get a unique opportunity to see the modified grille. On trend as always, BMW has redesigned the 5 Series grille as an enlargement, with gains in height and width.

The lower part of the bumper also seems to be subject to some modifications, which will make the 5 Series look even sportier and more aggressive. The eye’s have been reshaped with a boxy “U” shaped daytime running lights – same as with the 3 Series. There do not, however, seem to be any changes to the profile.

In the rear come some more subtle modifications. The lights and the bumper will be slightly revised on the redesign. The prototype for this is a hybrid version of the 5 Series, as shown by the black sticker on the C-pillar.

We can also see black rims containing blue stirrups. Taking a look inside the cabin, the new redesign will include the new iDrive 7 systems as well as the Professional Live Cockpit for the driver and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. There will be new paint colors for the exterior and new materials and color combinations for the interior.

2021 BMW 5 Series Release Date: Anticipation

The 2021 BMW 5 Series release date is looking to be later this year. Hopefully it’s not too much longer of a wait!

Fully Electric BMW 5 Series to Arrive in 2023

Consumer demand is one of the most important factors to consider when creating new products for your customers. In the auto industry, vehicle designers need to look at what the public wants and is buying versus to steer their lines in the right direction. In high demand now are electric vehicles (EV’s). In the world of BMW, it’s important that fans know the company is listening to them. Not only will we be getting an electric BMW 5 Series in a handful of years, the next generation BMW 5 Series is going to focus on offering features customers truly want, including a rear-wheel drive option and the popular xDrive system.

How serious is BMW about EVs in the future? They’re so focused and serious they chose to oust the CEO of BMW because he was very reluctant to embrace the transition to an electronic market. Harald Krüger did well when it came to ensuring production ran smoothly but his hesitancy to transition to EV’s is something that cost him his job. 

There had already been a plan in place to create vehicles that handled the combustion engine BMW is known for but that also could handle the EV drivetrains. The plan in place for the electric BMW 5 Series is still the same as it was, only now it’s on a much quicker timeline. Expect the new generation BMW 5 Series to have some serious power, so much so that experts are saying it will be able to directly compete with the Tesla Model S. A new EV BMW that’s going to be powerful and sleek enough to compete with Tesla? We’re definitely excited for that!

If you’re interested in EVs and the upcoming electric BMW 5 Series, visit Braman BMW West Palm Beach. Our experts can put you on the path towards your dream vehicle.

BMW 530E iPerformance: Gas or Electric?

2017 BMW 530e | Braman BMW

Meet the 2017 BMW 530e iPerformance. It marks yet another step toward lower emissions, even happier customers, and a better future overall. The world is changing, and BMW knows it. What’s more, the iconic brand is more than prepared to be at the forefront of that evolution. This means more cars utilizing electricity and fewer relying upon gasoline. So, how does the iPerformance fit into this mission?

This particular hybrid BMW for sale uses both electricity and gas. Under the hood, you’ll find a turbocharged, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine that offers up 180 hp and 215 lb-ft of torque. It works in tandem with a compact electric motor that is programmed to generate 95 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. The battery pack is liquid-cooled and takes about seven hours to charge when plugged into a regular 120V outlet.

The 2017 BMW 530e is a new addition to the 5 series lineup, but another happily electric option for those looking for one. A sleek design coupled with a much greener, eco-friendly motor allows you to get where you need to be without sacrificing style or power. It’s exciting to see where the technology takes us. How long will it be before BMW is wholly electric? Diehard fans and eco-conscious drivers are ready to shift with them.

Until then, you can still use gasoline when necessary, should you need to make it a little longer on the freeway or snag those extra miles to get home and charge up your car. The gas engine is there as support, though you can always ask the experts at Braman about more possibilities when you start looking for a hybrid BMW for sale. One thing is for sure – anyone in the market for an electric or hybrid car will appreciate the possibilities of the 530e. It delivers fantastic savings on gas, benefits for the planet, and, last but certainly not least, an incredible car for yourself.

BMW 5 Series iDrive

Silver 2016 BMW 5 Series

If you haven’t yet met one of the BMW 5 Series, it’s a family worth looking into. This line of cars has always been fun to drive and luxurious to sink into, as what you should expect from BMW. And of course, BMW is always open to trying new things with their cars, discovering what might work with some and how to improve upon others. In this case, it has to do with the BMW 5 Series and the ever-popular iDrive system.

Recently, watchers of BMW have noticed an F11 5 Series Touring with the iDrive system. What’s more, whispers and ideas have emerged that suggest that the infotainment system won’t be operated just by the iDrive controller, but with a touchscreen. So far, much of this is hopeful and very interested speculation. While the idea of the iDrive being added to the current BMW 5 Series lineup is interesting and exciting, it isn’t something that’s likely to happen. We’re already too far into the year for BMW to decide to make such changes. It’s more likely that the car spotted – the F11 5 Series – was simply for a test run. It only makes sense that the next lineup that receives the iDrive system will be for the 2016s. The concept is that both the iDrive system and the touchscreen can be used to control all functions of the vehicle rather than different functions being operated through two separate interfaces.

Still, we’ll have to wait for any final words from BMW. Until then, there is still plenty to enjoy with current BMW models. A visit to the Braman BMW dealership West Palm Beach will quickly show you all the delights and technologies that the BMW 5 Series has to offer. Why not have fun in your own while the new BMWs are finalized?


2014 BMW 528i – Observations from the Driver’s Seat

The inclination when considering the virtues of a fair-sized car equipped with a small engine is to approach it with diminished expectations as to the fun-to-drive quotient, and the hopes that the fuel economy numbers will somehow make up for it.  But no such tradeoffs are required for the 2014 BMW 528i; this is a car that is stylish, solid and surprisingly sporty.

The car looks good both sitting still and driving down the road, and feels solid, both in the quality of materials and construction as well in how it feels ‘planted’ on the road.  The surprising sporty aspect arrives courtesy of the 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine under the hood.  It produces a modest 240 horsepower, but, coupled to the BMW 8-speed automatic transmission, it pulls strongly when desired, shifts so smoothly you can’t even feel it, and cruises economically the rest of the time.  EPA ratings are 23 mpg City and 34 mpg Highway, making it the most fuel-efficient 5 Series ever sold in the U.S.

And the BMW Driving Dynamics system is standard equipment, so a button on the center console offers a choice of Eco-Pro economy mode, Comfort mode or Sport mode.  And each is clearly different from the other.

In addition to the mild styling changes to all 5 Series for 2014, our test car was equipped with the M Sport package which includes aerodynamic bodywork, special alloy wheels and a nice, fat racing-style steering wheel.  And the Prestige package option includes all the amenities, including keyless entry and the new touchpad surface for the iDrive controller that lets you ‘write’ numbers and letters for the navigation system, rather than having to hunt for them on a menu.

The BMW 5 Series, now in its sixth generation, has been a best-selling BMW model, both in the U.S. and globally, and for this year changes include a ‘freshening’ of the styling, standard navigation system, standard Adaptive Xenon headlights and an MSRP of $50,425.  A wide variety of 5 Series are offered, with 6- and 8-cylinder engines, diesel engines, hybrid powertrains, rear- and all-wheel drive and Sedan and GT body styles.

The 528i is the sort of under-the-radar model, but given its virtues, it deserves – and will probably achieve – a higher profile as drivers come to expect from BMW not just a world-class driving experience, but a fuel-efficient one as well.

Stop by and see us in West Palm Beach, or visit our other BMW dealership in South Florida, for a closer look at the 5 series and all of our other available BMW models.
