BMW recently announced some new updates to the F10 5-Series as it enters the 2014 year. In addition to some exterior visual tweaks equating to a midlife refresh, the 2014 BMW 5-Series also receives a new diesel engine and some modified pricing.
The 2014 BMW 5-Series starts with the 2.0L TwinPower four-banger powered 528i sedan with rear wheel drive priced at $50,425 with the top-range 550i xDrive Gran Turismo demanding $71,125. There of course exists the usual range of BMW’s wondrous turbocharged inline-six along with their sexy V8 an ActiveHybrid choices. The ActiveHybrid 5 and gasoline inline-sixes carry over mainly unchanged, though the 550i’s TwinPower 4.4L V8 gets a nice power bump to 445hp and 480 lb-ft of torque, up from 400hp and 450 lb-ft of torque.
But for the first time in the current F10’s history in the United States—and since the first ever BMW 5-Series, the E28 524td from the 1980s—the US-bound 5-Series will get BMW’s 3.0L Advanced Diesel inline-six that we’ve all been drooling over. Starting at $57,525 with rear-wheel drive, the 535d sedan churns out 255hp and a whopping 413 lb-ft of torque.

Design: Developing the Five’s signature sporty character.
Fresh contour lines for the surround of the BMW kidney grille and redesigned lower air intakes reinforce the sporty appearance of the 2014 BMW 5 Series Sedan. The accentuated width of the rear end is underlined by an extra crease in the apron, as well as slim, sharply contoured and therefore more striking rear lights.
The 2014 BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo receives a modified front apron exuding presence and solidity. Its redesigned rear end creates a longer and lower visual impression. A three-dimensional surface design for the area around the license plate holder and a chrome strip in the rear apron add further depth to its dynamic character.
Xenon Adaptive headlights are fitted as standard on all 5 Series models, while Adaptive LED Headlights join the options list for 2014. Elsewhere, the side indicator lights are now integrated into the exterior mirrors. Also new in the BMW 5 Series are the Luxury Line and Modern Line, in addition to the popular M Sport choice, each containing select design and equipment features.
