BMW Announces Pricing On 2011 5 Series & Releases New Pics (Video)

It looks like we finally got a price tag on the new 2011 BMW 5 series (F10 chassis).  BMW announced today that the 535i will have a twin turbo inline six (probably similar to the engine in the 335i) and will start at $50,475.  The twin-turbo V8 550i will start with a $60,575 msrp.  Both prices seem like a pretty healthy medium between the upper echelon 3 series models and the 7 series models.  So far there is no word on the next M5 or if there will even be an M5 but we are keeping our fingers crossed!  Expect to see the new 2011 5 series at dealers by June 19th of this year.

   

  

Press Release:

Pricing Announced for All-New BMW 5 Series Sedan

535i and 550i to start at $50,475 and $60,575 respectively

Woodcliff Lake, NJ – March 25, 2010… BMW has announced pricing for the all-new 2011 BMW 535i and 550i Sedans. The new 535i Sedan will start at $50,475, and the V-8 powered 550i will start at $60,575, including $875 Destination & Handling. The 535i receives BMW’s newest 3.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged inline, while the 550i will be powered by BMW’s reverse-flow 4.4-liter Twin Power turbo V8. Both will feature the new
8-speed automatic transmission.  Even with these enhancements, the base-prices for both models are lower than their 2010 predecessors – $1,650 in the case of the 535i and $900 lower for the 550i. The 535i and 550i continue a tradition that is the hallmark of the ultimate driving machine – the option of a 6-speed manual transmission at no cost.  The choice of a manual transmission has been a 5 Series tradition through all six generations since its introduction to the US 35 years ago.

As on any other BMW vehicle, BMW Ultimate Service, $0 maintenance for the first
4 years or 50,000 miles, is included.

The all-new 2011 BMW 5 Series combines a whole new look, inside and out, with new powertrain options and even more cutting-edge technology. Design features emblematic of BMW are to be found at the front with its kidney grille inclined slightly forward.

When equipped with the Sport Package, the new BMW 5 Series Sedan includes Adaptive Drive, which encompasses Driving Dynamics Control, Electronic Damper Control, and Active Roll Stabilization. Optional Integral Active Steering will virtually extend or shorten the vehicle’s wheelbase for improved stability at high speeds and enhanced agility at lower speeds.

The top-of-the-range BMW 550i arrives with BMW’s “reverse-flow” V-8 engine featuring twin turbochargers and High Precision direct injection for maximum output of 400 hp. The new inline-6 of the BMW 535i features a single twin-scroll turbocharger, High Precision direct injection, and, combined for the first time with turbocharging, VALVETRONIC throttle-less intake technology. It delivers a maximum output of 300 hp and 300 lb-ft. As noted, the 535i and 550i will be available with a choice of 6-speed manual transmission, BMW’s new 8-speed automatic transmission, or new “Sport Automatic” 8-speed.

BMW EfficientDynamics technologies are featured in appropriate combinations on each model, including features such as Brake Energy Regeneration, Electric Power Steering, a gearshift point indicator, active cooling air flaps, and on-demand operation of engine accessory drives. Lightweight materials are used to balance the vehicle. Components such as doors, hood, front fenders, and suspension assemblies are made of aluminum.

The driver assistance systems offered with the new 5 Series include an all-new Parking Assistant, Top View cameras, and Frontal Collision Warning with application of the brakes when ordered with Active Cruise Control plus Stop & Go. Other driver assistance features available include Blind Spot Warning, Lane Departure Warning, a Head-Up Display, BMW Night Vision with Pedestrian Detection.

Package and individual option pricing is noted below. The all-new 2011 BMW 5 Series makes its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show and will arrive at US BMW Centers on June 19, 2010.
