The 2019 BMW M5 Touring Possibly Happening

There is a significant hype being raised about a 2019 BMW M5 Touring model being made, but for now these only remain as rumors. The car has the potential of being made and a wagon offer has not been offered for a long time for this version, which is what is getting the crowd so excited.

The BMW 7 Series has already been showcased as a 2017 model but they have not confirmed if the M5 will be following it. Yet the rumors about it are getting bigger and bigger and the details are being gathered even further. It is known that the 7 Series is going to receive a new lightweight platform but perhaps bigger news would be the addition of a M5 with an all-wheel drive system. Getting a wagon version may not seem to be a spectacle for wider array of audiences but we assure you that it is a very important part of the overall design of the car.

The high-performance wagon is rarely seen recently and there were no signs that it would cahge for the future and that they may start including it so getting the M5 Touring might finally change that. People appreciate the M5 sedan a lot more, but wouldn’t it be awesome to get a wagon like in the good old days which might give us an added option to an already great lineup.

How will the New 2019 BMW M5 Touring Look Like?

Since there are no official images of the 2019 BMW M5 Touring available we only have some possible renderings to work with. The car might take some time to happen and although the idea sounds pretty good it will be pretty significant to gain it in terms of it bringing back the popularity that it once held.

The exterior of the 2019 BMW M5 Touring is now easier to wrap your head around to since the next-generation 5 Series has already been revealed. The new mid-size model is supposed to take some inspiration from the latest 7 Series model, which comes with a bigger kidney grille design and sleeker headlamps. The bumper in the front is presumed to be sculptured in the manner of the latest M3 and M4 but will come with center intake shaped in a trapezoidal manner and large outlets on its sides. The front part will also come with a bulging hood and black finishes for the grille in the front and the gills on the fender part.

The rear end will include sleeker taillights from the new 5 Series. Also present will be a sporty diffuser and a redesigned bumper as well and two exhaust tips seen below. You can also expect updated side skirts, a few new color optiosn for the exterior and a new wheel design. And as we have it with all the BMW vehicles, the next one will be more aggressive compared to the previous one.

The potential interior look of the 2019 BMW M5 Touring will follow the guise of the recent M badged BMW models. So first of all expect M badges in almost every corner possible of the M5 Touring. Exclusive for these models are sporty bucket seats which could be wrapped in Merino leather, offered as standard.

But optionally there might be the BMW individual semi-aniline leather provided as well. We can expect to see a lot of some darker chrome additions, some carbon-fiber trims and a flat-bottom steering wheel. This will all be combined with the latest cabin design which was already featured in the latest 5 Series.

What are the Potential Drivetrains?

When the 2019 BMW M5 Touring is finally made, we presume that it will use an expanded version of the twin-turbocharged V-8 engine. The output for this model might range to around 600 horsepower, which will be a very large increase compared to the 552 horses that it has now. But more exciting news is the addition of an all-wheel drive will help the wagon gain better acceleration and also better traction control.

We also assume that an xDrive system will come optionally. But since Mercedes has already decided to go full AWD and do not offer an RWD for the US version, it might just so happen that in the next few years BMW does the same. The 6-speed manual transmissions might remain as an option for the US audiences but not in the combination with the all-wheel drive.

We actually expect that the current 7-speed transmission with dual-clutch options will be substituted with a ZF, 8-speed automatic, as it already has a version to go with the AWD in the X6M and X5M. The performance would climb to 3.8 seconds to reach 0-60 mph while the top speed may be 155 mph.

What would the Estimated 2019 BMW M5 Touring Price be?

Estimating the price of the 2019 BMW M5 Touring could prove to be quite difficult. Since the current M5 model is not available in a wagon form, there are no solid evidence to match the price with. But you can bet that it will cost a lot more than the current M5 Touring, range-topping version, which is only available in Europe. The 550i Touring is still the most expensive gasoline based model and is priced €75,700, and the diesel variant M550d Touring amounts to €85,100. If we base it on these numbers the price will probably climb to €110,000 in Europe while the US price will be around $100,000 without additonal options.

What are the Competing Vehicles?

In fact there are a number of cars which might be considered as suitable rivals for the 2019 BMW M5 Touring. The most notable and obvious choices are the Mercedes-AMG E63 Wagon and the Volvo V90 which are also going to be followed by the Audi RS6 Avant.

History of the BMW M5 Touring

This nameplate offered a wagon body for some brief periods in its lifespan. The M5 arrived first in 1985 but the wagon body was only made in 1989 which came with the second-generation of vehicles. The E34 stopped existing in 1995 and with it the M5 Touring went down as well and the third-generation M5s were only sold as sedan version. But the Touring trim came back in 2005 when the wagon returned. It actually caused a great sensation as it was something that was not expected to happen.

Not only did it have a gorgeous style but it also carried an enormous V-10 under its hood. Now after a time of six years since the wagon was discontinued, and we do mean for the second time, it is the perfect time for a beefed up mid-size wagon to return once more. Perhaps the best news is that the model might cross to the US instantly upon release.

Conclusion

Even though there are no evidence of a 2019 BMW M5 Touring returning right now, it will certainly happen in the future. There is a need for a high-performance wagon model and they are going to bring it back. The car has made a return already twice so a third incarnation might easily be on the way. The prime reason is that Mercedes and Audi have been established their customer niche and BMW could use this opportunity and get a piece of the cake themselves.

Even with the fact that high-performance, midsize wagons are not as popular and are low-volume cars BMW is not going to completely abandon the prospect of making them and gaining an opportunity to make a new Touring.

Rumored 2019 BMW 8 Series on its Way

The 2019 BMW 8 Series will be built soon as some sources have said. Apparently, BMW is working on their new flagship sedan coupe and it seems that they are more motivated than ever to deliver it.

But why all the commotion about it and why now? Well it is rather simple. First of all the 7 Series model did not receive a lot of attention and did not make the desired or estimated sales as BMW wanted it to.

This prompted the model to lose ground and to be overpassed by the competition which is mainly coming from Mercedes, as it always does. They have finally come to turns that the brand needs to expand if it is to compete against the best cars in the segment. Thus the 2019 BMW 8 Series is their primary goal.

Why use the name 8 Series?

The 2019 BMW 8 Series is in fact going to be a redesigned 7 Series model. For now, officially this project still does not have a name, but it is in fact a redesign of the current 7 Series model. It is also apparent that the future flagship model is not going to bare the same name and will change it for future endeavors.

It has still not been concluded exactly under which name it will be known for but there are two options for now, 7 Series Coupe and the 8 Series. But we are calling it the 8 Series as the manufactures are leaning towards this name a little bit more than the former one.

This is a kind of a naming pattern that Mercedes is known for and it appears that in order to compete with the rivals you have to think as the rivals. Maybe that it is the reason BMW is implementing their strategy now.

When is the The 2019 BMW 8 Series  Release Date Expected?

The 2019 BMW 8 Series is still considered a project, meaning that there is a lot that needs to happen in order for them to actually come out with the final production vehicle. But it is happening, that is for sure. The designers have confirmed their involvement in the project and BMW is working to release their 8 Series model as soon as possible. But that may not be as close as we hope that it would be.

The design is going steady but we cannot expect the model to come out earlier than 2019. It makes for a long wait but judging by the plans and the info released currently, it might be worth it. We also need to wait for the facelift of the 7 Series to pass so the next thing coming after that is the release date for this 2019 8 Series model.

The Story about the 7 Series Model?

The new 2019 BMW 8 Series will be a redesign and is going to be based on the current 7 Series model. The current 7 Series sixth-generation vehicle released in 2015 as a full-size sedan, labeled G11-genreation 7 Series. This was also the part when the new platform of the company has been introduced and used here. It also brought many exterior as well as interior design changes which managed to benefit the car.

The model managed to update the style language back then and brought us a sleeker vehicle with sporty elements which managed to appear elegant at the same time. With the new design came also the interior perks which included updated materials and the newest BMW technology which was offered. As a final piece of the puzzle updates in the drivetrain department also came which expanded the range of the vehicle.

But this version was offered only as a sedan and that is one of the main reasons why the newest 8 Series is planned as a two-door coupe vehicle. The BMW 7 Series has lost momentum in recent times and although the current model was initially a great vehicle, it did not have the edge needed which will push it past the competition. That is one of the main reasons why the 2019 BMW 8 Series needs to be built as their new flagship vehicle.

Rendering

Generally speaking, the 2019 BMW 8 Series rendering was done based on the current sedan version. Simply saying, the wheelbase was shortened, the rear doors were removed, and the roof was redesign to mimic a coupe model. The rear decklid is also shortened and it seems much sleeker compared to the last time. Also added are a lower windshield, some side windows, aerodynamic side mirrors and the B-pillars have also been removed completely.

Even with the majority of the style transferred from the previous car, this one seems a lot sportier while having the same stance as a touring model. More or less, this is what every BMW enthusiast would expect form its favorite brand.

The interior of the 2019 BMW 8 Series is also supposed to copy the sedan. You can expect to find the same kind of a dash that bares horizontal lines in the front end of the car. Expect some wood trims, aluminum inserts, a three-spoke, steering wheel with multi-function features, and a high positioned center console. And let’s not forget the new seats with full adjustability that come draped in high-quality leather also. Of course, the majority of the changes comes for the rear end because of the change to a coupe body style.

The headroom and legroom will be lesser because of the smaller dimensions of the wheelbase and a sloping roofline. The 2-door coupe will have the same technology package as the current model, so expect to see an iDrive infotainment system completely fitted with the newest Gesture Controls, Touch Command, and the Bowers & Wilkins Diamond brand sound system.

As far as the drivetrain goes for the 2019 BMW 8 Series it appears that BMW is again going to spread the drivetrain options across the lineup. So the 8 Series coupe will inherit the drivetrains of the 7 Series sedan. In the US, the lineup begins with a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter inline-six with an output of 320 horses and 330 pound-feet of twist for the 840i. It reaches 0-60 mph in 5.3 seconds and has a top speed of 130 mph but may optionally be raised to 155 mph.

Next we have the 850i which uses a twin-turbo, 4.4-liter displaced V-8 engine, making 445 hp and 480 pound-feet of torque. This one races to 0-60 mph in 4.3 seconds and copy the top speed from the former one, but this one offers both RWD and AWD for the range-topping models. The sedan also has a middle hybrid option dubbed the 740e. It uses an ActiveHybrid 7 and has a range of 23 miles using only the electric engine and can reach a top speed of 75 mph, resulting in a total output of 322 hp and 370 lb-ft of twist.

With the European versions, the sedan offers more drivetrains available. It included the 730i, which is the entry car that adds a 2.0-liter, turbo-four making 254 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. The diesel variant includes the 730d car and the 740d version which were both us a twin-turbo, 3.0-liter inline-six making 261 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque and 320 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque, respectively. The new addition for 2017 year was the 750d including the brand-new 3.0-liter, quad-turbo six-cylinder, which helped it make 390 horses and 560 of twist. There also the 830i and 830d trims, but we assume that these are not going to be used here.

2019 BMW 8 Series Price Rates

Although it is still far away and taking about the price of the 2019 BMW 8 Series seems redundant, it is still fun to guess the potential price. We are sure that the price of this car is going to be significantly raised compared to the previous as the Mercedes has done the same with their S-Class Coupe, giving it a 22 % boost in the price.

As it is estimated now the entry 740i which has a price tag of $81,500 for the current model will start at $85,000. This also leads us to believe that the 2019 version will gain a price of $100,000 just for the entry level car leaving the top tier ones at $120,000.

Some News and Spy Photos of 2019 BMW 3 Series

The newest, next-generation 2019 BMW 3 Series is in the midst of testing the car in cold weather conditions. The vehicle was spotted and the spy photos quickly resealed so we have a potential depiction of how would the future 3 Series potentially look like. Even though much of the car remains cladded in camo there is a lot that can be seen and speculated about the car. The newest sedan version is going to substitute the present F30 model which rose back in 2011.

There is a difference of what we hope the car might look like and what we will actually get, but as we were able to learn much of the desired changes are going to be implemented. The 2019 3 Series version will come with an update in style, lower weight, more power, different dimensions, new autonomous driving fears, and of course an M-style inspired performance.

The need to create a 2019 BMW 3 Series model is actually more than necessary to do. The 3 Series was considered a giant in the industry and quite a well-orientated sedan which brought much of the market to its knees. But those days are long past because the competition has been gaining paste and managed to takeover something that once was the domain of the 3 Series. The new version 2019 BMW 3 Series is supposed to bring the vehicle on track and keep the competing vehicles at bay.

When is the Release Date of the 2019 BMW 3 Series Expected?

The new model 2019 BMW 3 Series will be released in a couple of years. There is still time to speculate about this car and a lot of it still has to be confirmed. One of them is the release date as well. There is no telling when the model will make its debut but we are hoping for a swift resolution that will bring the model to us by late 2018.

What Price are we Getting?

In order to stay competitive, the new 2019 BMW 3 Series cannot afford to raise the price so much. Although the vehicle seems like a very good prospect which would probably attract the audiences through its immense array of luxury and accessories a high price will drive them away just the same. The current assumption is that they need to keep the starting trim at $34,000, while a price of $45,000 is expected for the mid-range models, and the top tier vehicles will go all the way to $66,000.

Not a Specifically Extensive Exterior Update

Even with all the camo which currently covers the 2019 BMW 3 Series, it is more than certain that this is a BMW vehicle. It has all the necessary features of one which are hard to look past. The front end features a trademark BMW fascia which comes with the expected kidney grille and the usual sporty lines. The low-and-wide stance is achieved through the addition of a drawn-out lower intake which is longer this time while the LED headlight additions seem to draw back a bit further into the fender part. The overhand upfront is short while in the back the LED taillights have a circular motion and the rear end is concluded with a dual exhausts.

As for the newly added pieces, none of them actually stand out so much. The shape and styling looks pretty much the same as it did before, but we do notice some creases which look significantly crisper and a styling which invokes aggressiveness with the tendency to reduce the drag coefficient to much as possible. The model will also come in the standard body styles that it did before with the offered sedan and wagon versions and the unforgettable four-door coupe Gran Turismo.

More Room on the Inside

There are going to be some very apparent changes for the interior of the 2019 BMW 3 Series model. The part that is being rumored the most is that the car is supposed to have more room on the interior. Combine this with more luxury and added materials for the inside and we get a well ordered vehicle. The infotainment is also going to be expanded with various ways that you can connect your smartphone with the car, a head-up display, and a big touchscreen. Also offered is going to be the next-generation version of the BMW’s iDrive which is a vehicle control system. On the console at the steering wheel you will see digital instrumentation and voice recognition systems.

One of the most exciting pieces of technology which is being added is the newest gesture control, which is already used for the 7 Series. Based on what was displayed at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show, they are going to develop this technology even further and make it available for this vehicle and its future incarnation. This technology will allow you to perform certain tasks within your car just by merely making hand signals and gestures which will turn them on or off.

Drivetrain Possibility

Something that will be certain for the 2019 BMW 3 Series is the addition of a diverse array of engines, meaning that both the gasoline and diesel ones are available and that hybrid models are going to make it in this seas and they all come with turbochargers. We start with the 1.5-liter three-cylinder which makes 135 horsepower and 165 pound-feet of twist, but this one might not be offered for the US market although it has great fuel economy. But the audiences in the US will be able to use the turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinders and 3.0-liter six-cylinders, which are getting large updates. The power of the 320i might enhance to 200 horsepower while the mid 340i can go all the way up to 320 horsepower or even 350 horsepower. The racer ready M3 version will use a six-cylinder engine which will help it get to around 500 horsepower with the added updates.

Some Safety Additions

With the latest 2019 BMW 3 Series coming, they have also implied that they will add a number of safety spaces which will support this car. The current use of lane-change assist, automatic braking, and adaptive cruise control and self-paring are already going to be in use but we are expecting something new and exclusive to be added as well.

2019 BMW 3 Series 0-60 mph and Top Speed

As far as the acceleration of the 2019 BMW 3 Series, we are sure that it will get greater. With the updates brought to the engine lineup we are sure to get some faster cars. The current acceleration to 0-60 mph is 5.4 seconds while the top speed amounts to 155 mph. The top speed might stay the same but the acceleration rate might get better with the 2019 version.

New Fuel Economy

We are sure to get updates within the fuel economy rating of the 2019 BMW 3 Series. These will differ from powertrain to powertrain and the inclusion of a hybrid powertrain will also add more suspense and a greater dimension for the car. The EPA stats are not out yet but the current ones measure up to 23 mpg city and 34 mpg highway and those stats will surely change.

Rumors about the Size of the 2019 BMW 3 Series

One of the most noticeable and loudest rumor about the 2019 BMW 3 Series is that it will incorporate some dimensions changes. These are going to be mainly within the wheelbase of the car as it appears that they aim to increase the interior passenger volume and bring more comfort that way. But larger dimensions also mean a larger curb weight, which they are trying to keep down and do not want to add more this way. Although a low curb weight is possible with the use of lightweight materials like carbon fiber and aluminum it will be in theory possible that they add the necessary dimensions changes while at the same time keep the weight to the desired number.

What Rivals will the Car Face?

The 2019 BMW 3 Series is looking to epitomize its next step in the segment and wants to get back some of the fame that it has lost. Although none of the additions so far are not groundbreaking, they are a good addition to keep the car afloat, But we shall see if it is enough to help it compete against the likes of Jaguar XE and Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedan, to name a few.
