2019 BMW Z5

Details about the 2019 BMW Z5 Release Date

The information which surfaced about the 2019 BMW Z5 finally being revealed took everyone by surprise. After the merger between the Bavarian giant and the Japanese automaker, everyone expected to get a potentially good vehicle. But this one really came out of the blue. Even with us expecting a car that should shape the demographic of the industry in the coming months, we are still bewildered with what is in store for us.

The prototype version of the 2019 BMW Z5 was finally seen on the road. It is still heavily camouflaged during its cold weather testing. But there is a lot that we are still able to discern. The very fact that they have gotten to this stage only tells us how far ahead they actually are. In terms of finally seeing this car live, we predict that the release date will probably be somewhere in late 2018 or early 2019. Whatever the case may be, we are absolutely looking forward in getting the first model that marks the start of an unexpected but hopefully a very fruitful relationship.

2019 BMW Z5 Potential Price

Assessing the price of the 2019 BMW Z5 is pretty hard to do. This vehicle is still in development and there are scarce information, not only about the price, but also for the better part of the vehicle itself. It makes it so much harder to determine just how much the vehicle is going to cost.

But we are fairly sure that the price will be a hefty one. Releasing this car will not be an easy task but we are sure that it will find its niche audience quite easily. If we were to make a guess, we are choosing to base the pricing on the current Z4 model. This vehicle is worth $49,700 based on the latest figures. So the estimations for the price of the 2019 BMW Z5 will most likely be about $55,000, before options. We will probably get the confirmation about the price as soon as the release date is set.

Rumored 2019 BMW Z5 Car

No body actually expected that the 2019 BMW Z5 would even be a thing. After the big merger that happened between BMW and Toyota, everyone was expecting for big things to happen. We were only waiting the day to come when we were finally going to see what the end result was going to be.

For a long time, rumors were swirling about a comeback for the Z4 model. After the revival of the Supra, the Z4 was the next best thing. Everybody got really excited about potentially seeing this car. But the truth was actually much different in the end.

What we got is the 2019 BMW Z5, which comes out as a replacement for the Z4 model. The newest roadster vehicle was in development for quite some time now. We only managed to attest to this vehicle only after the release of the spy photos.

The car is in its cold weather testing stage of development and it only seems that it will only get better with time. We are ever so hopeful to see this car come out and it appears that we have not been properly excited about a certain vehicle for quite some time now.

Some 2019 BMW Z5 Exterior Details

The look of the 2019 BMW Z5 will follow the one of the Z4 vehicle. But this one will have its own unique traits and characteristics which will make it a perfect successor. A lot of it is still a mystery. You can hardly discern anything from the thick layer of camo. But there are some parts that you cannot deny are there.

We were able to notice a long hood, short overhangs, a short rear deck, and a low riding position. What this model adds that the previous Z4 did not is the folding metal roof which will be a novelty for the newest vehicles here.

Some styling features include a slightly bigger kidney grill in the front end. The nose is lower and imposes a more aggressive stance compared to last time. The headlamps have grown alongside the grille and there is a discerning chrome frame added as well. There is also a three piece bumper which you can hardly see, but the professionals will know that it is there.

The side of the car actually shows a less muscular appearance. We can see an almost featureless beltline while both the front and rear ends of the car have flatter fenders. The rear end is for now well concealed. You can only discern the already familiar taillights hidden under the wrap. The integrated spoiler is still there and there are still many parts which are quite similar to the Z4 model.

Potential Color Options

For now, there are no details about the color changes for the 2019 BMW Z5. The stage of development that we are in does not allow us to actually make any guess here. There have been no rumors and no leaks about the vehicle and how it will look.

The colors that we may expect to see are some transferred from the Z4 car. But they are probably not going to do that and they will just add some new ones and bring us a completely new specter of colors. This would be a great way to start with the new brand.

Size and Dimensions for the 2019 BMW Z5

The size of the 2019 BMW Z5 has not been officially announced. This car is expected to feature different dimensions compared to the Z4, but we do not know how differ. If we analyze the current set of photos that we have, we can discern that the vehicle is going to be a bit longer and also slightly winder compared to the Z4. This will give a more dominating look to the newest roadster model.

Some Interior Details about the 2019 BMW Z5

The interior of the 2019 BMW Z5 is not real discernable. But even though them being very secretive with the cabin, there are a few sneaky spy photos taken that show us how the inside looks. The vehicle’s cabin is a combination of old and new elements.

There are some familiar parts that you have seen on some early BMW models, but there are also some newer ones that are a first timer for the vehicle. The floating infotainment display is taken directly form the BMW Series 3. But this system is a little bit dated, so it might be either a decoy or it could also be a potential updated version that they are planning.

The steering wheel is also different. In fact it remains us on the newest batch of steering wheels that BMW is making for all their newest cars. But it might also come to be that until the production version comes, the steering wheel gets to be changed completely.

But it is still nice to see that they are working in a very contemporary and modernistic direction. Unfortunately, the details about the materials and other specs for the car are scarce. This will be updated as soon as the car gets close to its final stages of development. But if we are to predict, we hope to get newer and more proficient forms of materials. A much sportier and comfortable surrounding is expected on the inside of the car.

Engine Choices and Capability of the 2019 BMW Z5

For now, there are not exact evidence about the drivetrain of the 2019 BMW Z5. We are expecting to see something grandiose and are really hoping that BMW is going to equip its car with the best engines that they can muster. If we are to make an assumption, BMW might follow a similar formula that all the recent models have been getting.

So this usually starts with a turbocharged, four-cylinder under the hood while we expect a similar model for the upper trims. If we are to go for range topping trims, than we are probably going to get something in the line of 3.0-liter inline-six under the hood. There is also a great possibility that they can make a high performance M version. They have still yet to give any comments on this but might actually make it somewhere down the line.

As far as transmission choices go, there will probably be a manual and dual-clutch automatic gearbox options available for the vehicle. In this case, all-wheel drive is optional. There is still no prediction about the output, though.

0-60 mph and Top Speed

The 2019 BMW Z5 will probably be a pretty fast car. But until we determine the engine choice, we are not able to predict the 0-60 mph performance nor the top speed. But it will certainly be faster and more powerful than the car in inherits.

Fuel Economy Ratings of the 2019 BMW Z5

The latest 2019 BMW Z5 might try to improve on the fuel economy. But the question still remains how much are they capable of doing that. There will still need to be a lot of development for them to make the necessary changes needed for the car to consume less.

Jeep should release the upcoming vehicle by middle of 2018. It will most likely still carry a label as a 2019 model. Even though they are already preparing and showcasing it. The first time we were able to see the Compass car was for the Los Angeles Auto Show, when they showcase the vehicle for the first time. It was one of the first presentations which took the public by storm. Everyone was finally relieved to see that the company is bringing this model to us this way.

Rumored Details for the 2019 Jeep Compass

With the expected arrival of the 2019 Jeep Compass, there are a bunch of rumors that emerged. One of them is related to the production of the vehicle. As it stands, this is an international model which will span across various markets across the globe. But as far as the North American market goes, its production will be in Mexico.

So the rumors were shun when this detail was released. And it quickly shows how serious they are in presenting their best Compass to the public. The rumors which initially emerged showed us a lack luster performance on the designer’s part. This brought to many people’s attention an idea that his model is not going to meet the expectations. But so far, this is all not true. The car is on schedule and will arrive by the destined release date.

2019 Jeep Compass Exterior Details and Changes

Generally speaking, the look of the 2019 Jeep Compass is a lot more mature now. They have taken a lot of details form the existing fleet of Jeep cars and molded them all into one. The result is a very handsome looking car with all the necessary elements and details of a family vehicle.

The front end has a steeply racked lower fascia which is important for off-road duties. It comes with the addition of HID projector beam headlights and LED daytime running lights. At the same time, lower fog lights help with providing additional visibility at certain times. They also wrapped wheels in some durable and semi-aggressive tires which will help with driving in various different terrains.

All trims of the 2019 Jeep Compass will have a blacked-out roof with black for the A-, B-, and C-pillars. On the other hand, the D-pillar have the color that matches the body of the car. The rear end of the car includes attractive rump, with a scalloped tailgate and clear-lens taillights. There are some chrome accent strips featured here as well and satin-chrome accent panels. All of this brings to the new second generation being a much handsomer vehicles.

New 2019 Jeep Compass Size

As this is the new generation 2019 Jeep Compass vehicle, everybody is expecting to see changes for the body. Even though they seem apparent and it is only logical that they do decide to change the size of the model, it is still not clear by how much they are planning to change it. The automaker has refrained from something on this and we have predicted that the changes could come, but so far it is even hard to guess based on the pictures.

This only means that if the changes have been made, they are very slight. The current model is 173.0 inches long and with a wheelbase of 103.8 inches. The height is 64.6 inches and the width is 73.8 inches. As far the inside goes the passenger volume is 101 cu ft while there is enough room in the cargo bay to fit anything you need as it gives us a space of 27 cu ft.

2019 Jeep Compass New Color Introduced

The 2019 Jeep Compass is getting a second generation model. As such you can probably predict this car getting new aesthetic. We were hoping to see changes in the design but also in color. The current set of colors is pretty standard and is getting dated.

Even the last update has not brought any new variations which we could call unique. So we are hopeful to get something new here. But there are no news that would excite us and confirm this rumor. There is surely going to be an update when it comes to color variants but for now they are keeping it to themselves. We hope to learn more once the release date gets nearer and they are probably keeping the news for then.

Interior Design of the 2019 Jeep Compass

Moving inside the 2019 Jeep Compass, we noticed a few similarities with the current Jeep models. This is particularly noticeable with the Cherokee interior. There are a few elements translated from this version and it includes also the dash that has a twin-barrel gauge cluster which also includes TFT center display of 3.5- or 7.0-inches. In the center mid area there is the 8.4-inch Uconnect system with dual vents surrounding it. A Uconnect 5.0 comes standard but you can expand to 7.0 inches optionally.

They upgraded interior design with a different look and better materials. The two-tone leather seats come with red contrast stitching. Black leather is standard and there are various features for the front which help with the driver easily using the car. The rear area includes 60/40 style seats. There is quite enough space for the passengers to fit in the back and enjoy the ride. We can say that the entire interior has been designed smarty and functionally. The overall layout is great and there is a lot that you can enjoy with this vehicle.

2019 Jeep Compass Engine Choices

The engine choices for the 2019 Jeep Compass are familiar but are not being carried over. So they will still use  2.4-liter Tigershark four-cylinder turbo engine. But it will not be the completely same engine that was used before. This time they will update it very nicely and upgrade it with 10 hp of more power.

It all results to an upgrade of 180 horsepower and 175 pound-feet of torque. This has been done with FCA’s MultiAir2 valve train technology which greatly helped to improve the specs of the car. There are also thee transmission choices available with the six-speed manual transmission being standard. You can link it with FWD or 4WD drivetrain systems. Also provided are the six-speed Aisin automatic and FCA’s nine-speed automatic transmission. The former one comes with a FWD while the later includes a 4WD system.

2019 Jeep Compass Top Speed and Acceleration Ability

The updated engine of the 2019 Jeep Compass will also provide slightly different specs. Although we already have a familiar engine on our hands with great potential, they have managed to improve it slightly and get better production out of it. The vehicle is capable of reaching 0-60 mph in time of 9.3 seconds for 4WD models while the FWD ones do it in 9.8 seconds. The top speed for all versions is still limited to 110 mph.

Fuel Economy Ratings

With the newest setup of the 2019 Jeep Compass, we are getting some improvements in comparison to the older one. It is not much, but any advancement in creating a more efficient car is welcomed. This time the rates go to 22 mpg city, 30 mpg highway, and 25 mpg combined. This EPA rating was released for the 4WD version with a nine-speed automatic and it looks pretty decent. Other official ratings have yet to come out and we expect that the company releases them soon.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Exterior Design

The design of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 will be very much recognizable. They are not going to tamper too much with the design and expect not to see any experiments done here. Instead they are only going to transfer some standard cues from the other Toyota brands. Namely the Prius and the Camry are the ones that are available here and they are going to borrow the necessary elements for this car to handle.

The vehicle will be more angular and in that sense more modern. The front end will see the majority of the updates with a slightly different grille and flared wheel arches. The back is mostly similar but we do get to see different taillights. There are also some smaller pieces changed which pass as unnoticeable. As far as the profile goes, the car gets a fairly similar design as well.

2019 Toyota RAV4 Size and Dimensions

The 2019 Toyota RAV4 is going to keep the dimensions which we had so far. This car has not made any changes in the size and the dimensions part for a number of years so far. There has not been a need to change it and it appears that they decided to stick to this and keep the vehicle at the limit that they had it. Now the vehicle is gearing for a new 2019 update and the size is still there. The full length of the car is 181.1 inches and the wheelbase is kept to 104.7 inches. The height is 65.5-65.9 inches and the width will come to 72.6 inches. Passenger volume is still pretty decent and we also have a cargo capacity of 36-38 cu ft.

Are there any New Colors Available?

It would have been nice that the 2019 Toyota RAV4 added some new color variants. But unfortunately, there are no official information available about updating the color choices. The standard set looks nice but is getting dated a bit and we would like to see some new ones available. Hopefully this news comes a bit late and Toyota could still surprise us with the announcement. At least, one new color choice could become available.

What are the 2019 Toyota RAV4 Rumors?

The latest rumors about the 2019 Toyota RAV4 also indicates better safety equipment. Actually, this car has been rumored to update more than you would think but what they have particularly concentrated on is the safety equipment. This model should be a much safer vehicle which will could expand upon its already secure interior with more new equipment.

The standard set is pretty good to start with. However, we are going to get some expansions as well. These will include the model adding lane-departure alert, lane-keeping assist, forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high-beam headlights. This is only the start for the newest 2019 Toyota RAV4. They are also planning to bring us much more. All in all, prepare for a completely new car with stellar performance rates and expanded features for a new model year.

New Interior Updates for the 2019 Toyota RAV4

What the designers made sure is to make the inside of the 2019 Toyota RAV4 much more pleasurable. The RAV4 is a model which practically invented the compact segment. Now when the car has received yet another update, we are hopeful that we are getting a car which has a stellar interior.

What the 2019 version brings is a totally new inside with enough room and a lot of comfort even for a compact car. There will be certain changes in materials. They are going to make it much comfortable for you to ride in. Additionally, it will also affect the ride comfort as well. The designers are updating the equipment as well. This will help with the infotainment of the vehicle and help you have a blissful and entertaining ride.

Sound insulation is another specter that some people overlook. This version of the RAV4 will make sure that the inside is very quiet and that they add specific materials which are going to isolate the car from the outside. Furthermore, it will integrate with the concept of the car to its fullest.

Another going, the hybrid version will have almost equal space and comfort inside. Even with the added battery, they managed to make sure that het interior will be fitting for the people even this way. There is a lot to rejoice about when it comes to the new 2019 Toyota RAV4, and the interior is one of the most important parts.

Are There any Engine Changes?

The newest 2019 Toyota RAV4 will have a familiar engine set without any surprises. Many people expected to see a car with a turbocharged engine as it is something that most of the future Toyota cars are doing. The Camry was the latest vehicle that added a more powerful engine. So there was certainly something that was going to happen under the RAV4 hood. But they have decided against it and will keep the same powertrain for this version.

The 2.5-liter I-4 will continue to be used and will still make 176 hp and 172 lb-ft of twist for this car. The same six-speed automatic will continue on as well, but a much bigger and interesting news is the addition of an eight-speed transmission. All in all, this vehicle will still benefit from the engine and it will continue to serve it as a very reliable choice.

0-60 mph and Top Speed

The new 2019 Toyota RAV4 will have old acceleration specs. With the same type of powertrains the specs will simply be transferred this time. When they do decide to include a turbocharged engine into the mix, then we can expect to see improvements in the acceleration department. For now, the RAV4 is able to accelerate to 0-60 mph in 9.3 in its base form, while using the AWD it can get there in 8.7 seconds. The top speed is still 108 mph as well.

What is the Fuel Economy of the 2019 Toyota RAV4?

The fuel economy stats for the 2019 Toyota RAV4 are pretty solid. They are actually pretty good for this kind of a car and for the segment. We have been hoping to get an improvement but there is going to be none this time. But we still have a hybrid version offered as part of the lineup.

The base form has an EPA rating of 23/29-30 mpg while the inclusion of an AWD creates an consumption of 22/28 mpg. The hybrid version on the other hand is capable of 34/30 mpg, and that is with AWD. This car is pretty nice to use. So you are not going to regret it whatever the case may be for you to choose it.
