Pricing Announced for 2011 BMW 5 Series xDrive Sedan

535i xDrive and 550i xDrive to arrive in October 2010.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ June 18, 2010Just as BMW enthusiasts across the nation begin taking delivery of the new 2011 535i and 550i Sedans, BMW is pleased to announce pricing and availability for the xDrive variants of the sixth-generation 5 Series. Arriving in October 2010, the 2011 535i and 550i xDrive Sedans will retail for $52,775 and $62,875, respectively, including $875 Destination and Handling. These prices represent a $2300 premium over their traditional rear-wheel drive counterparts.

For the new 5 Series, xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive has been updated to match the performance and character of the 7 Series xDrive models introduced last year. BMWs Integrated Chassis Management (ICM) is able to identify and limit understeer by shifting torque rearward (initially 80% to the rear axle) while preserving the stability for which xDrive has been so widely recognized. As a second step, ICM can then apply a precise combination of throttle and individual rear-corner braking in order to maintain neutral handling in a corner - regardless of road surface conditions.

Every BMW xDrive model receives standard Hill Descent Control. This selectable function allows the driver to descend slopes in extremely slippery conditions while maintaining control at a pre-set speed.

Additionally, all 2011 5 Series xDrive models feature BMWs 8-speed automatic transmission, celebrated for smooth shifting, sportiness, and efficiency. Compared to the excellent 6-speed automatic in the previous-generation 5 Series, the 8-speeds wider spread of ratios allows the engine to run at lower speeds for improved efficiency. Yet even with this capability, the steps between adjacent gears are reduced; this means a stronger, smoother flow of power during acceleration. To minimize response times and maximize acceleration, downshifts can be made directly between top gear and the lowest available gear for the current road speed.

Looks like there's no 6MT option with xdrive. Shame.

Doesn't the xDrive sport package normally come with the stock suspension - no lowered, stiffer springs like the i version?
I bet there will be a sport package - bigger wheels, seats and trim from the 535i/550i, without the sport suspension.

From what I learned, since I am a Client Adviser, Adaptive Drive will be offered, the Sport Automatic Transmission will not be offered and yes the Sport Package will be offered with the Sport Wheels on both the 535i/550i.

Steptronic + paddles does not equal "sport automatic transmission"

The "Sport Automatic" was not offered on the 2008 3-series models.

$62875 for 550xi in US...

For us in Canada, it's $73300... and the exchange rate is like 1.02 CAD for 1 USD. Car should be ~$64150 CAD to be equal, and our tax rate is 13% in Ontario.
