2017 BMW 5 Series Pricing Announced
Just call it the $50,000 series
BMW released pricing details for the all-new 2017 BMW 5 Series. With the entry fee now starting at a little more than $50,000, you can now call it the 50K Series if so inclined.
A standard 2017 BMW 530i sedan in your choice of Alpine White or Jet Black will sell for $51,200. The 530i xDrive model starts at $53,500, the BMW 540i sedan at $56,450, and the BMW 540i xDrive will set you back $58,750.
BMW's $995 destination and handling fee is not included in the price, but there are a few goodies thrown in as standard, the highlight being an anthracite (coal) headliner.
Other standard equipment for the sport sedan includes adaptive LED headlights, fatigue and focus alert, a moonroof, and a set of 18-inch double-spoke wheels with all-season run-flat tires.
Standard sport seats are 16-way adjustable and upholstery choices are Sensa Tec, Black Sensa Tec, or Canberra Beige with Black Sensa Tec. Leather upholstery adds $1,450 to $2,450 to the base price.
BMW's seventh-generation 5 Series sheds up to 137 pounds by using a combination of aluminum, magnesium, and high-strength steel.
Performance has been notched up a bit as well, with the 540i's twin-turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine receiving a 35 horsepower bump, bringing the total up to 335 hp. Tech-wise there's a new user interface, iDrive 6.0, with an 8.8-inch touch screen.
Optional dynamic damper control ($1,000) with adaptive mode and integral active steering can now be combined with xDrive (all-wheel drive) driver assistance, and parking assist.
