BMW Plans to Bring M5 Touring to US, Confirms Design Chief

BMW Plans to Bring M5 Sedan and Touring Wagon to North America by 2025

It has been widely speculated that BMW is currently preparing for the release of the next iteration of their popular M5 model. As part of this new release, there have been rumors circulating about the possibility of a wagon version being made available in North America. However, BMW’s design chief Domagoj Dukec has recently confirmed with The Car Guide that the company does indeed plan to offer a Touring variant of the M5 in the United States. According to Dukec, this highly anticipated wagon is set to make its debut in 2025, alongside the new and improved M5 sedan.

We contacted BMW North America to authenticate Dukec’s statements, however, a spokesperson only informed us that specifics regarding the availability of the M5 Touring will be disclosed at a future date.

BMW gave a sneak peek of its powerful wagon right before the holiday season, concealing its elongated roof with vibrant gift wrap. The vehicle will feature a fresh hybrid system that promises to deliver an impressive performance. According to reports, the combination of a twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine and electric power will generate more than 700 horsepower, putting it in between the standard XM and the XM Label models.

The car company unveiled the latest 5 Series Touring just a few weeks ago, providing us with an initial glimpse of the updated appearance for this type of body. If we had to make an estimation, the more powerful M5 is bound to grab attention with its bold front grille and four exhaust pipes.

The inception of the M5 Touring can be pinpointed to the triumph of the M3 Touring. In an exclusive conversation with Quattroruote, BMW’s executive Frank Weber revealed that the sales of the M3 wagon exceeded their initial expectations by three times. This achievement prompted them to venture into creating a spacious version of the larger M5. We have reason to believe that Audi’s recent accomplishments with the RS6 Avant in North America may have also influenced this course of action.

After officially unveiling the standard 5 Series sedan and wagon, the M5 models are expected to make their debut by late 2024 in the American market. Prospective buyers should be prepared to shell out a considerable amount, with prices likely to exceed six figures for these updated M5 versions.
