The BMW 5 Series is a much-loved group of driving machines. The M550i xDrive is so fast that it can hit 60 mph in just under 4 seconds. It’s hard to believe that BMW would make the 2020 BMW 5 Series even faster and more aggressive, but the rumors that we’ve been hearing for months have turned out to be true: the 2020 BMW 5 Series will have the power of an 8 Series BMW.
Recently BMW of Europe released a list of all of its 2020 model updates. The list showed that the upcoming 5 Series vehicle is going to have a significant power upgrade. BMW USA verified that the new 5 Series will have the N63 engine that we’ve come to love from the 8 Series BMW. So what does this mean in regards to horsepower? If you purchase your M550i near the end of 2019 and in 2020, for example, you’ll find that your new BMW has 523 hp instead of the normal 455.
Having an extra 68 hp may seem like a small amount, but we’re fairly sure that drivers will instantly be able to feel the difference. The M850i xDrive takes only 3.6 seconds to reach 60 mph. With the same engine, we wouldn’t be surprised at all if the new 5 Series is able to achieve the same level of speed – and then some. It may be speedier because it’s been proven recently that BMW is actually underrating their engines, which means it may hit 60 mph in just over 3 seconds.
All the things we love about the 8 Series BMW paired with the sleek style of the 5 Series? It seems like a match made in heaven.
Stay tuned to the Braman BMW Jupiter blog as more details are revealed about the exciting 2020 BMW 5 Series.
