Official: 2011 Bmw 5-Series Touring to be revealed on April 10

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

BMW's new 5-Series in the wagon form (the traditional Touring model) will be launched on April 10 at the Auto Mobil International show in Leipzig, Germany.

This is certainly long awaited since we've already seen the sedan and Gran Turismo versions. BMW has yet to reveal details about this new wagon but it can be assumed that its powertrain lineup will be similar to what its sedan form offers in Europe. 

If true, the wagon will come in seven-engines, three diesel- and four gasoline-powered models. The base engine is BMW's 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine, which generates 184 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque.

The engine is capable of 48 mpg on the EU cycle. BMW offers a 3.0-liter turbo-diesel as 525d (204 hp and 332 lb-ft) and 530d (300 hp and 398 lb-ft).

If you prefer gasoline-powered engines, you have the choice between two normally-aspirated inline-six-cylinder engines on the 523i (204 hp and 199 lb-ft) and 528i (258 hp and 228 lb-ft) models, and the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter in the 535i (300 hp and 300 lb-ft). The top-of-the-range engine is BMW's new twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 with 407 hp and 442 lb-ft of torque.

All these engines are offered with a standard six-speed manual and an optional eight-speed automatic transmission. It's likely that another gasoline-powered engine will be offered after the launch in the form of an M5 Touring.
