2017 Maserati Quattroporte  Release Date, News and Rumors

Although the new 2017 Maserati Quattroporte in its segment for its Italian flair, it still trails behind its rivals in terms of technology offered. On the upside, though, some of the highlights for the newest Quattroporte model include user-friendly controls, distinctive styling, spacious cabin and engaging handling. The Maserati Quattroporte release date should be expected sometime in the latter half of 2017.

German marques have long dominated the flagship luxury sedan market for quite some time now. While these stalwart competitors undoubtedly deserve the kind of praise they’re constantly heaped with, exuberant alternatives are much better when it comes to precision. Unlike the robotic ride quality you get from the German vehicles, the Quattroporte livens up the stately segment with an Italian flair.

It comes with inspiring Ferrari-sourced engines that offer a sizzling performance ranging from the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 generating 404 hp and 406 lbs. ft. of torque to the 3.8L twin-turbocharged V8 good for 523 horsepower and 524 pounds-ft. of torque. The overall ride quality is impressive as long as you avoid the larger wheel options.

The styling is shapely, comfort is unrivaled and bespoke, and the cabin is pleasantly isolated from the outside world thanks to clever engineering and upscale designs. The seats are specially designed and offer lots of comfort and support.

Sadly, there are various faults that reduce the Quattroporte’s overall design. It lacks advanced safety features, it is more expensive than most of its rivals, the interior lacks the kind of refinement one would expect from such a vehicle, and the infotainment system doesn’t seem to respond as well as mainstream vehicles.

There is no doubt that the Maserati Quattroporte 2017 offers an emotional alternative to the status quo, however, German marques head this class courtesy of the exemplary performance their models offer, albeit cost more. They include the Jaguar XJ, BMW 7 Series, the Porsche Panamera, and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

2019 BMW X5

New 2019 BMW X5 Release Date

There are finally some solid evidence available about the 2019 BMW X5 vehicles. This model has been around since 2000 and as such it has been a revolutionary model which helped to spawn other crossover vehicles. The X5 itself has gone through several generational changes.

In fact the previous three generations of the BMW X5 models are exceptional cars, according to many. And they are very important for the overall automobile industry. But there have not been any news in regards with this car. That is, until now when the spy photos have appeared.

Even though, the 2019 BMW X5 had a lot of camo on it and is in its bare-bones stage of development, the prospect of it making it back sounds pretty good. Judging by the state of development, the car is going to come out as a 2019 model. But the real release date will most likely be for the end of year 2018. It sounds perfect for all of the fans of this BMW product. And we have to admit that we are hoping to see everything that this car is capable of bringing us.

Potential Price of the 2019 BMW X5

The price for the 2019 BMW X5 is still not available. It will probably take a lot of time until we get something remotely close to a final price. Since it still requires a lot of work, we might get to see several price changes till the final release date. Hopefully they will keep the price as close to the current price as possible.

When it comes to the outgoing model, it starts at a base MSRP price of $54,700. This highest price for an X5 product will go all the way up to $71,599, for the range topping xDrive 50i. If we look at the potential price of the 2019 BMW X5 version, we are probably looking at an addition of $2,000 to the current price. This might now seem like a lot, but we assure you it will be worth the price once you really see what the newest car is capable of.

2019 BMW X5 Rumor News

After years and years of guessing, the 2019 BMW X5 is finally going to become a reality. This vehicle has been in the forefront of building for some time now. We were highly expecting to get a decent fourth generation X5. However, there have been not a lot of instigation that they were actually going to make one. All of it was still left in the realm of rumors. That is until now.

Once we finally spotted and recognized vehicle as a future X5, people started flocking to the brand and immediately wanted to see more of it. There is a great number of fans excited to see how this car will come out. There is a lot they still need to unveil. But as things unravel we will slowly be able to pick up on the things which are in front of us. All in all, we have a lot of great expectations out of the future 2019 BMW X5.

Newest 2019 BMW X5 Exterior Details

Unfortunately, the 2019 BMW X5 does not unveil a whole lot when we look at the car. There are still a lot of details that are missing and that we will have to find out as the release date gets closer. This is still a car in development and the spy photos have unfortunately depicted only a car which will still need to change. As far as we are able to see, there are a lot of elements missing.

This can either mean two things. One is that they have done this on purpose and as a decoy to trick us in believing that they are removing them. While the other is that they are actually doing something for this part and that they are going to remodel it and change it completely. The front area is particularly devoid of a lot of elements. Even the grille is removed and there is a great possibility that we get an entirely different hood with the production vehicle.

The side of the car does not have a lot of surprises. There is a great possibility that they might keep most of the elements similar and can only added a few new details there. On the other hand, the rear will probably get a lot of changes.

The current version has a very bland looking fascia so it will more likely receive the majority of changes. The most obvious situation here is a complete makeover which will see the car be remodeled in the back much more significantly. For now, even the taillights seem unnoticeable and there are not indications about what they might do.

Possible Color Changes

Since we are in the earliest stage of development for the 2019 BMW X5, the color additions are still not determined. The current car has a great set of colors to choose from and we can probably say that the future one will do the same. The specter of colors available to us now is very likeable but will probably do with a few new additions. These will probably happen but for now it is early to tell which ones they might add.

Are There any Changes for the Dimensions of the 2019 BMW X5?

If we are to judge the size of the new 2019 BMW X5 based on the current photos, it would be highly difficult to do that. Instead we are actually predicting that the car will not grow so much. Even if they decide to switch up the size of the car a little bit, it will not be exceptionally different compared to what we have now on our hands.

But being that this is the newest generation vehicle there is still a great possibility that they plan to do something with the size. As a reminder, the current model is 192.7 inches long and boats a wheelbase of 115.5 inches. The height is 67.6 inches while the width is 78.1 inches. Inside the passenger volume is limited to 105 cu ft and a cargo bay of 36 cu ft.

What is the Interior Like?

The same thing happens with the interior of the 2019 BMW X5 and unfortunately for now the details are scarce. The interior of the model is subject to changes as much as the outside is. But it is also in the bare bones stage of development for now. But here it is much easier to predict what might happen.

BMW is probably going to make sure that they give us the best kind of setting so the material and the instrument cluster will be probably improved and updated. Expect to get newer and softer materials and also some updated technological features. There are some mentions of a TFT display with the traditional gauges removed. Also, the latest news says that this car has been approved for remote parking and we are most likely going to get it with the 2019 version available.

2019 BMW X5 Engine Capability

There is no current news for the engine of the 2019 BMW X5. For now, there are not exact details about which ones they will choose. But there is a great possibility that the model will gain some changes for the powertrain. Whether we get a completely new engine variant, or that the current ones get the update, we will still have to wait a bit so we see.

The current model has the 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder that produces 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque as its base option. Next comes the  3.0-liter I-6  which offers 255 horsepower and 413 pound-feet of torque while the most powerful one is the 4.4-liter V-8  that allows an output of 445 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque. There is no doubt that they decide to retain one of these engines but to which measure it remains to be seen. All in all, there is most certainly going to be an improvement mad.

0-60 mph and Top Speed Performance for the 2019 BMW X5

Based on the current set of engines, the 2019 BMW X5 is capable of quite good feats. If the changes are put into effect the vehicle will gain much different capability. But we are not entirely sure if they are able to go beyond the ones currently available. These include a speed up from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 160 mph. Al in all, these are already pretty decent but people would expect an improvement with the new generation model.

What is the Fuel Economy Like?

The fuel economy of the 2019 BMW X5 would be probably due with a bit of improvement. There is no doubt that they are working on making it better. So the current numbers might reach a much different rate once the car is out. They currently stand at 14 mpg city, 19 mpg highway and 16 mpg combined.

The design concept of the new 2017 Bentley Bentayga is probably miles away from the Bentley EXP 9 F Concept design that debuted four years ago at the Geneva Motor Show. Much of the design language that has been employed by the new model has been borrowed heavily from the top-selling Continental GT model with slight modifications done to befit the size and shape of an SUV.

But even so, there are some few features that set it apart from the 2017 Continental GT including the grille, headlights, and the engine hood. The LED headlights mimic those of the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 concept that debuted last year, the engine hood is smaller, and the grille is significantly larger.

The side profile is akin to that of the Range Rover Sport. It looks pretty much menacing on the side thanks to the iconic rear haunches, and the 20-22-inch wheel designs available. Around back, it gets bigger exhaust outlets, a sturdy bumper, and oval-shaped taillights. Aluminum metal is also heavily used in the construction if the body panels.

The same Bentley Continental’s design language continues deep into the cabin. Similar features include the steering wheel, the center stack, and the dashboard. Some of the unique features available include fifteen-way adjustable rear seats, an eight-inch touchscreen interface, handcrafted metal, wood, and leather trims, 22-way adjustable front seats, 18-speaker audio system, 15-carpet colors, and a slew of driver aids.
