News has circulated recently that BMW is considering introducing a new version of the M5 Touring to the North American market, generating excitement among many enthusiasts.

This development carries significant implications for several reasons. Firstly, the impending BMW M5 Touring is anticipated to be in high demand, and history has shown that BMW seldom disappoints. Furthermore, it addresses the gap left by the absence of the BMW M3 Touring in the US and Canada, a fact that has left many fans wanting.

Despite initial enthusiasm, the situation took a turn. After several automotive journalists suggested that the BMW M5 Touring would finally land in North America, BMW’s executive, Domagoj Dukec, promptly dispelled the rumors. He categorically denied any such confirmation, raising doubts about the car’s imminent release.

Nevertheless, we can make some educated guesses about the vehicle. It is highly likely that the M5 Touring will be equipped with BMW’s renowned S63 engine — a twin-turbo 4.4L V8 powerplant — paired with an electric motor from the XM series.

Regarding performance, this hybrid configuration already delivers around 740 hp and 740 lb-ft of torque in the SUV variant, indicating that the M5 Touring could offer comparable figures. Special editions like the CS might even surpass 800 hp. Given that the SUV can sprint from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, the wagon should provide a similarly thrilling experience.

xDrive all-wheel drive will come as standard in BMW’s robust estate, paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox that prioritizes rear-wheel drive dynamics.

Anticipate a comprehensive array of M-inspired enhancements, including advanced electronic driving aids, diverse driving modes, an enhanced suspension setup, larger brakes, and wider tires.

The car’s exceptional performance will also be evident in its design, featuring a more athletic aero package, broader wheel arches, and quad exhaust outlets, defining its M-car identity. These design cues will extend to the interior, incorporating new sport seats and abundant use of carbon fiber for a premium feel.

The debut of the new BMW M5 Touring is expected shortly, so stay engaged for updates on its potential launch in North America.
