2014 Model Year 5 Series Changes

COMMENTS

Per BMWNA, here are the details regarding changes for the 2014 Model Year 5 Series and M5
(also see F10 LCI Official Thread):

Also see:
2014 BMW 5 Series US Price and Order Guide (Sedan, GT, Activehybrid)


BMW 5 Series Sedan and 5 Series Gran Turismo:

Updated design and new equipment: Fresh contour lines for the surround of the BMW kidney grille and redesigned lower air intakes reinforce the sporty appearance of the 2014 BMW 5 Series Sedan. The accentuated width of the rear end is underlined by an extra crease in the apron, as well as slim, sharply contoured and therefore more striking rear lights.

The 2014 BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo receives a modified front apron exuding presence and solidity. Its redesigned rear end creates a longer and lower visual impression. A three-dimensional surface design for the area around the license plate holder and a chrome strip in the rear apron add further depth to its dynamic character.

Xenon Adaptive headlights are fitted as standard on all 5 Series models, while Adaptive LED Headlights join the options list for 2014. Elsewhere, the side indicator lights are now integrated into the exterior mirrors. Also new in the BMW 5 Series are the Luxury Line and Modern Line, in addition to the popular M Sport choice, each containing select design and equipment features.

iDrive4.2: Now with touchpad.
The newly-standard iDrive4.2 Navigation system makes use of an optimized menu display and allows access to Advanced Real Time Traffic Information. A new iDrive rotary controller with an integrated touchpad allows the input of characters for destinations, phone numbers, and other functions within the iDrive4.2 operating system.

New diesel engine: The BMW 535d Sedan has been added as BMW’s latest diesel variant in North America. Its inline-6 BMW Advanced Diesel engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology makes 255 horsepower at 4,000 rpm and 413 lb-ft of torque from 1,500 – 3,000 rpm (preliminary figures). Simultaneously, the new BMW 535d Sedan is expected to show substantial fuel efficiency gains over its gasoline-fueled counterpart. BMW’s xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system is also available on the new 535d Sedan. Preliminary US EPA Fuel Economy figures for the 535d Sedan are 26 MPG city, 38 MPG Highway and 30 MPG combined, The 535d xDrive sedan preliminary EPA figures are 26 MPG, 37 MPG Highway and 30 MPG combined.

New V8 Engine for the BMW 550i and BMW 550i xDrive:
The new generation of the V-8 engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology for the BMW 5 Series model family takes to the stage armed with a 10 percent rise in output yet also significantly reduced fuel consumption. Found under the hood of the BMW 550i Sedan and BMW 550i Gran Turismo, it now also combines its two twin-scroll turbochargers and high precision direct fuel injection with BMW’s Valvetronic throttle-less intake valve control. The engine generates 445 horsepower and maximum torque of 480 lb-ft from its 4.4-liter displacement.


New to the BMW 5 Series: BMW Lines.


New exterior paint colors – and available for all models – are Calisto Grey metallic, Jatoba metallic, Mineral White metallic and Glacier Silver metallic. New variants have also been added to the line-up of optional light-alloy wheels.

BMW Lines are now available for the first time to all members of the new BMW 5 Series model family as an alternative to standard specification. Customers can choose between the Luxury Line, Modern Line, and M Sport. All Lines also include the option to upgrade to luxurious Nappa Leather upholstery at no additional charge.

Hopefully the new steering software helps with the horrible steering found in the recent 5 series. I could not stand the steering feel of the newer 5's devoid of any feel or feedback.

The USA version 535d and Xd is the same as the EU 530d. In EU the 535d has 313Hp.
Why would they call it a 535d then?
Strange :-)

Buy an X Drive, it has hydraulic steering. I'm sure X Drive would be useful in Houston.

Because of the fuel quality (USA diesel has more sulphur in it than in Europe)and emissions differences, the diesel engines are not the same...so, the numbers are somewhat arbitrary.
