The BMW 5-Series Lineup Plans to Dominate 2017 Detroit Auto Show

2017-01-16T14:17:11+00:00January 16th, 2017|Santa Barbara Auto Group|

BMW is using the 2017 Detroit Auto Show as their debut stage to introduce the next generation of the brand’s 5-Series.

Year after year the Detroit Auto Show becomes exponentially more interesting and impressive. With constant advances in technology, the contemporary push toward sustainable efforts, and an overall lift on limiting ideas, the Auto Show has become a demonstration of continuing automotive brilliance and innovation. This year will once again display the collaborative efforts of engineering genius. Amongst the exhibitions will be the lineup for the new BMW 5-Series. After the brand released photos and information about the new series in October, it is easy to tell that the intelligence and unmatched ingenuity that BMW has always prided itself on is still their priority. As an authorized BMW dealer, BMW Santa Barbara is excited to see the official release of the vehicle and the admiration it will receive for its debut at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show.

An All-inclusive Luxury Vehicle

The new BMW 5-Series will likely compete against rival Mercedes-Benz with their new tech-focused E-Class sedan. Though the vehicles will be similar in concept, the BMW 5-Series is truly unique. The automaker will be debuting three models from the 5-Series: the 540i xDrive, hybrid 530e iPerformance, and M550 xDrive.

A host of technical and communications systems in the 5-Series are borrowed from the higher class 7-Series sedan. For instance: the 5-Series now offers semi-autonomous driving and safety features, gesture controls for telephone and infotainment system, and the ability to park the car with the driver standing outside the vehicle.

The 5-Series will be slightly larger than its previous model, but due to the use of lightweight aluminum parts, it will also be 137 pounds lighter, effectively adding comfort while improving efficiency. The three models that will be displayed at the Detroit Auto Show have varying engines to suit the performance needs of different drivers.

  • The 540i xDrive is equipped with a 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder engine that produces 335hp and 332lb-ft of torque.
  • The hybrid 530e iPerformance combines BMW’s eDrive electric drive concept and a 4-cylinder gasoline engine for 248hp and 310lb-ft of torque.
  • The M550 xDrive has a V-8 engine that has 456hp and 480lb-ft of torque for more power-driven drivers.

The 530i and 540i models from the 5-Series are set for public purchase as early as February, while the hybrid model and M550 xDrive model are set to go on sale in Spring 2017. BMW Santa Barbara is prepared to offer you the knowledge and guidance you need when deciding if the 5-Series is right for you. Visit our talented team of BMW experts to learn more about the upcoming 5-Series and all of our new and pre-owned BMW models.
