The N54 turbocharging concept addresses both turbo lag and durability concerns. The most striking feature is the twin-tone finish on the door panels: black door trim bars at the top and the lower panel section in the interior color, together with elegantly sweeping bars, take up and continue the look and materials used on the dashboard. Apart from enhanced menu guidance and refined graphics, the new programmable memory keys ensure more intuitive control and operation. Note: the entire range of 5 Series Saloon and Touring models, with performance and economy data, can be found at the end of the release. On the road, this means reaction times now some 40 per cent faster than on former automatic transmission models, with the actual gearchange time being almost halved. In addition, the Cornering Light function adjusts the direction of the headlights when turning corners at less than 25 mph. This includes everything from flat tire changes, emergency gasoline and lock-out assistance, to towing, alternative transportation and even trip-interruption benefits.
Customers can also now specify Active Cruise Control with Stop and Go. The torque increase is just as impressive: 300 lb-ft. On many models produced September 2006 and later, a selected destination and its phone number can be sent directly to the on-board navigation system and Bluetooth®—linked mobile phone, after a push of the new Concierge button. In this case, the headlights swivel in accordance with the position of the steering wheel, the yaw rate of the car, and its road speed. This year adds low-speed cornering lights in the inboard headlamps, which illuminate nearby objects at speeds below 25 mph.
This allows the driver to maneuver the car with less effort and force on the steering when parking, while at high speeds it is easier to remain precisely on track. When engine over-run is recognised, the Intelligent Alternator engages and powers up the battery to 100 per cent with what would have been lost energy. Apart from the direct connection to the engine, this transmission stands out in particular through its upgraded hydraulics, innovative torque converter and even more powerful management software, ensuring a more spontaneous response to even the slightest movement of the gas pedal and an extremely fast and efficient gearchange. The advantages in fuel efficiency, power, torque and emission control are more significant. Following the 3-Series closely in popularity,. Thanks a lot South Coast Autos for inviting me to Texas for the first time! The system can come to a complete stop and remain active; a touch of the accelerator pedal by the driver reactivates the cruise control so it can resume the set speed.
Power units more muscular than before and with exceptional all-round efficiency raise the line-up of engines in the 5 Series to a higher standard. Comfort Stop eases off, making for smoother stops. Pearl Gloss Chrome, the very pleasant rubber finish on the controls for smooth and easy handling, comfortable padding on the door armrests and panels as well as on the center console all contribute to the style and class of the interior. Not only is it no-charge for the first 4 years, but there is no mileage limit. It sounds great, pulls hard, and is very flexible. Every video is consistent in the way I present so viewers know what to expect in my presentations. The automatic transmission is controlled by an electronic gear selector lever following the usual gearshift pattern.
Control of the iDrive vehicle management system has also been enhanced. Peak power is 360 hp; peak torque is 360 lb-ft. This feature allows the Service Advisor to proactively set up a customer appointment and have the needed parts ready. An executive car, the 5-Series is produced in both sedan and touring body styles. From its launch in 2003, the E60 5 Series delivered year-on-year sales records and received numerous accolades.
The Varioserv steering assistance pump, varying the curve ring as a function of pressure and volume flow, avoids the usual increase in drive losses as a function of higher engine speeds. Here are details of how this dramatic progress was achieved — over an engine that was already outstanding in all these respects: Evolved Valvetronic variable valve lift. Just look at the stance, the way the body sits on the chassis, ready to pounce on any opportunity to show its stuff on a challenging stretch of road. It was a wonderful trip filled with awesome cars! The system can also be turned off via a switch on the multi-function steering wheel or in the iDrive menu. If this were as simple as it sounds, direct injection would long since be commonplace. Yet over its history, turbocharging has also suffered some daunting drawbacks. And now the design, driving experience and superior comfort offered by the 5 Series reach a new standard of perfection.
In its appealing look and ideal ergonomics, the new electrical gear selector lever for the automatic transmission merges perfectly into the stylish interior. It uses Intelligent Alternator Control and a high-capacity Absorbent Glass Mat battery. For more info on this car or any others in their inventory, check out Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! Delivering power and torque increases by up to 20hp and 20Nm as well as improvements in fuel economy by up to 25 per cent, it appears to have succeeded. Once the distance the driver has chosen to the vehicle ahead is no longer maintained, the system will intervene, building up brake pressure to control the car accordingly. Heated rear seats, available for all models in combination with the Cold Weather Package.
The engine is agile, and it performs like a big, naturally aspirated engine, but with much better mileage. Refined and sophisticated style within the interior. When using the keyless system, our 550i was graciously mute. This sophisticated control system is also able to reduce speed automatically to a standstill as a function of traffic conditions. Typically, to avoid overheating, turbochargers have had to make do with a lower compression ratio. Engine innovations such as High Precision Direct Injection and twin-turbocharging improve performance and economy alongside class-leading comfort technologies such as Lane Departure Warning System and Head-up Display. Like the N52, the N54 has a 7000-rpm redline.
A further advantage to torque and fuel consumption is the cooling effect of fuel being injected into the hot combustion chambers. Its main advance over the 1st-generation system is that it gives the engineers greater degrees of freedom in the calibration of fuel quantity and timing and the distribution of the fuel-air mixture in the combustion chamber. In this intelligent all-wheel-drive system, optimized control and management electronics ensure spontaneous and precise response to changes in driving conditions. As an example, the current speed of the car or navigation data is in the direct line of vision with maximum convenience at all times. That would have weighed too much and its fuel consumption would have been unacceptably high. Instead of simply being fully on or off, application and release of these valves are now modulated.
