BMW M5 Touring Is Probably Coming To North America

Recently, BMW announced that they would be producing a new M5 Touring and bringing it to North America, which excited many people in the region.

This is significant news for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the new BMW M5 Touring is expected to be very popular, and BMW rarely makes mistakes. Secondly, it fills the void left by the absence of the BMW M3 Touring in the US and Canada, which continues to disappoint enthusiasts.

However, this excitement was short-lived. After various automotive journalists claimed that the BMW M5 Touring would be coming to North America for the first time, it was quickly denied by BMW’s head, Domagoj Dukec. He specifically stated that he never confirmed this, leaving room for some uncertainty about its arrival.

Regardless, there is much about the car that we can reasonably expect. The use of BMW’s S63 power plant in the M5 Touring — a twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 engine — along with an electric motor from the XM, is highly likely.

On the performance side, this hybrid setup already produces about 740 hp and 740 tq in the SUV version, so we can expect similar figures for the M5 Touring, and possibly even exceeding 800 hp for special variants like the CS. With the SUV model being able to accelerate from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, the wagon should be similarly quick.

xDrive all-wheel drive will be standard for BMW’s muscular estate car, along with an 8-speed automatic transmission that will prioritize rear-wheel driving dynamics.

Naturally, we can anticipate the full range of M enhancements, including advanced electronic driving aids, extra driving modes, an upgraded suspension system, larger brakes, and more substantial tires.

The car’s ultimate performance will also be reflected in its appearance, with features such as a sportier aero kit, wider wheel arches, and quad exhaust tips, ensuring that it’s unmistakably an M-car. These design elements will also be evident in the interior, where new sport bucket seats and significant use of carbon fiber will make it feel special.

We anticipate that the new BMW M5 Touring will be officially revealed in the near future, so stay tuned, and hope for a North American release.
