2011 Bmw 5-Series details emerge on the web

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

The technical details of Bmw's next 5-Series are already leaking out although it won't come out until early next decade. The 2011 5-Series, Codenamed F10, will come with powerhouses founded on the latest turbo lineup.

Present in the 540i is a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six, in the 550i it is the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8, and a clean diesel twin-turbo.It is reported that even the M5 will change from the ultra-high-revving V10 to a turbo V8.

Hybrids will most probably be offered as complete dual-mode and mild types, contingent on how they're accommodated in the X6 and 7-Series hybrids that are yet to come.

The wheelbase of the 5's has been increased by a couple of inches, but the target is to keep the present mass via the employment of smaller, turbocharged powertrains and wide-ranging aluminum in the exterior surface panels, such as the roof, closing panels, and fenders.

The MacPherson struts will be replaced by the control-arm front suspensions. Selections comprise the Integral Steering package recently introduced on the 7, which put in electronically controlled rear steering to the common active front steering.

Adjustable damping will also be offered. A choice of drivers' aids will consist of follow-to-stop adjustable cruise control, side-looking cameras, head-up display, and pedestrian recognition night vision. Instead of a platform, Bmw now refers to a "backbone." The designation applies to the firewall, suspension, and floor, in an assortment of wheelbases.

Sharing the backbone with the 2009 7 and the 2010 Progressive Activity Sedan Series are the F10 and the next 6 Series. Check out the 2009 7 Series for a foretaste of the switchgear, instruments, iDrive, and seats of a 2010 PAS, 2011 5 Series, or 2013 6 Series.

Adaptive as this backbone is, it has its own boundaries. It was thought too diminutive for the CS four-door coupe concept, This is the reason why production was stopped because of unnecessary cost and able to reach, in these trying moments, far too few buyers.
