NEW 2014 BMW 5-series has arrived at dealers
BMW's updated five-series sedans have begun to dribble into dealerships, and with them, some price increases that place the model one of the priciest in its category. The 528i and 535i climb $1700 from last year's stickers. That places the entrylevel 528i, with rearwheel drive and 240hp turbocharged fourcylinder engine, at $50,425. For a sixcylinder 535i, which offers 300 hp, BMW is requesting $56,025. Adding xDrive allwheel drive to one of these tacks on $2300.
The actual news for the line is the dieselpowered 535d. It uses the same double-turbocharged inlinesix that's in the diesel X5, and here makes 255 hp and an amazing 413 lbft of torque. It's coupled only with an 8-speed automatic transmission, but xDrive allwheel drive is designed for the customary $2300 surcharge. The E250 BlueTec, that'll come only with 4Matic allwheel drive, won't get a cost until sales start in a couple of months.
