BMW 5 Series Engine Power and Efficiency

The 2021 BMW 5 Series comes with a 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine. It's partnered with an 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission that includes Sport and Manual modes to better suit your driving style. With this engine equipped, you'll get the following:

  • 248 horsepower
  • 257 lb-ft of torque
  • Auto Start-Stop function
  • EPA-estimated 25 city/33 highway MPG1

If you want some more power at your disposal, you can look toward the available 3.0L M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder engine. It generates 335 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque. You'll also get to enjoy an EPA-estimated 25 city/32 highway MPG.1

There are some sedans that head into the garage when rain or snow hits the road, but the 5 Series is not one of them. It can be equipped with the xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive system. This full-time system sends power to the wheels with the most grip, so you'll always enjoy sure-footed control.

2021 BMW 5 Series Hybrid Performance

If you're looking for the efficiency and eco-friendly nature of a hybrid sedan, the BMW 5 Series 530e is for you. It's powered by the tag team of a 181-horsepower 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine and a 107-horsepower eDrive electric motor. They work together to provide a total power output of 288 horsepower.

The eDrive button will let you decide how to use your power. You can run exclusively off the 12 kWh lithium-ion battery, all gas power, or a combination of both. The selectable drive modes include:

  • AUTO eDrive 
  • MAX eDrive
  • Battery Control

If you decide to run exclusively on battery power, the 530e has an all-electric range of 21 miles or 18 miles when outfitted with XDrive all-wheel drive.2

BMW M-Infused Performance

M vehicles are inspired by BMW's long-standing legacy of victory on the racetrack, and the BMW 5 Series M550i sedan has motorsports in its DNA. It comes equipped with a 4.4L BMW M TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that cranks out 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque, so you can soar from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.6 seconds.

One unique performance feature of this 2021 BMW 5 Series configuration is the Adaptive M Suspension. It comes with electronically controlled dampers that make this sedan more responsive and maneuverable through sharp corners. It works alongside the following:

  • M Sport Differential
  • M Sport Brakes
  • Sport exhaust system
  • Rear diffuser

The standard Launch Control will be even more exciting to use with this sedan. When activated, it works to reduce wheel spin under heavy acceleration, so you can jump off the starting line with complete confidence.
