2011 Bmw 528i priced from $45,425

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2010

Pricing for BMW's all-new 2011 528i has been announced. The entry-level 5 Series, the 2011 528i, is priced from $45,425, including an $875 destination fee, making it nearly $5,000 less expensive than the 535i, and nearly $1,400 cheaper the outgoing 2010 528i. This is almost unbelievable since the 2011 model is an all-new design, and it boasts of getting numerous improvements over the outgoing vehicle. 

BMW claims that the all-new vehicle architecture 55% stiffer than the last 5, but is considerably lighter. The 2011 528i is claimed to weigh 355 pounds less than the 2010 model.

The 535i and 550i both use forced-induction engines, while the 528i is powered by BMW's venerable normally aspirated, 3.0-liter inline-six. BMW has retuned the engine to improve power to 240hp and 230 pound-feet of torque.

Partnered to a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, the modified 528i is said to be capable of accelerating from a standstill to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds.

It should be noted that the 2010 model could achieve this speed in 7.4 seconds. BMW has yet to reveal detailed pricing for the 2011 528i model, but it is believed that options and packages will closely resemble those available on the 2010 car.

With a sport package, the car gets 18-inch aluminum wheels and high-performance run-flat tires, as well as other aesthetic modifications. Both systems will be offered in a standalone "Dynamic Handling" package but unlike the sport package offered on the 535i and 550i, there won't be dynamic driving control or dynamic suspension controls.
