It shouldn't be news that Michigan BMW dealerships are extremely proud of their 5 Series vehicles, mostly because they are among the most popular automobiles that we here at Sharpe BMW sell.  This model year, however, we are particularly excited about a new member of the 5 Series family: the 2014 BMW 535d xDrive, so named because it offers a brand new diesel engine to go along with all the other things BMW vehicles are known to offer: comfort, luxury, excellent driving dynamics, and top-notch safety scores.  To be honest, any 5 Series sedan is a really nice vehicle, but for American lovers of clean diesel, the 2014 BMW 535d is hard to pass up.


We'll start with a conversation about that engine, which is what separates this model from other members of the 5 Series available at local BMW dealers; under the hood of the 535d xDrive is a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine capable of producing 255 hp and an impressive 413 lb-ft of torque.  The xDrive all-wheel drive also gives Michigan drivers extra traction in snowy weather, and our Driving Dynamics Control, 8-speed Sport Automatic Transmission with paddle shifters, and auto-stop start function aide in making the drive as smooth as possible.


As far as luxuries and creature comforts are concerned, the 2014 BMW 535d xDrive is pretty loaded.  Leather upholstery, wood trim, and a 10-way power adjustable driver's seat and passenger's seat make for a very comfortable interior, while extensive infotainment features and Bluetooth connectivity highlight some of the top-shelf technologies that BMW dealerships like us are always speaking of so highly to our Grand Rapids customers.


Of course, Michigan BMW dealerships also preach the benefits of the 535d in regards to safety, and like any other 5 Series car, this one is certainly ahead of the curve in terms of standard and advanced safety features.  These include antilock brakes, stability control, traction control, emergency braking assist, adaptive headlights, plenty of airbags, and the BMW Assist emergency telematics system, which does things like contact help in the case of an accident and aid in stolen vehicle recovery. 


As the longest-running current production model in the industry, the BMW 5 Series is, quite frankly, one of the most respected automobiles in the history of our brand, and the new 2014 BMW 535d xDrive does nothing to put that reputation in jeopardy.  Quite the opposite, really, as it provides a new engine option for diesel enthusiasts that is wrapped up in the same luxurious package as the standard gasoline-run models.  Grand Rapids BMW dealerships love selling this car, so if you're interested in taking it for a test drive, come pay us a visit and we'll get you set up. Just locate our dealership, and stop on by-we can't wait to show you how wonderful diesel can be!
