In an expected move, BMW North America announced a price increase on all of their models. The 0.7% price increase will become effective January 1, 2009, but it will not affect the base prices of their recently launched diesel models: BMW 335d and X5 xDrive35d.

The reason for the price increase? Economical changes in the market place and a revenue decline in 2008. In addition, BMW has also announced the pricing for the 2009 BMW 7 Series, and nothing has changed from the previous article we wrote: 

  • BMW 750i –  $81,125 MSRP
  • BMW 750Li -$85,025 MSRP

The new 7 Series will reach the U.S dealerships in the first week of March 2009, but the 7er can be ordered any time now.

Here is the full BMW pricing for 2009:

    Hmmm, the economy is in ruins and they want to raise prices? Well good luck to them, i think BMW should restructure their factories or move them to the USA, instead of just hiking up the price.

    @Artmic:
    Both of those “plans” will cost them more money that they don’t have to spend right now.

    Personally, I don’t want them to ship their factories to the US. Bad idea in general.

    haven’t prices of materials and oil gone down? whey are they raising the prices ? if anything all car manufacturers should lower their prices to encourage people to start buying their cars and encourage people to start spending again
