BMW Gives an Early Glimpse Of Its Upcoming 2025 M5 Touring

Back in late June — almost exactly a year to the day after pulling the cover off of the first-ever production M3 Touring — BMW first revealed teaser images of its forthcoming M5 Touring sport wagon. Now, after several years of development and extensive road and track testing, the Bavarian brand is poised to soon debut its full-size third-generation M-spec sport wagon. Before doing so, however, it’s giving the motoring public one final glimpse of the 2025 BMW M5 Touring prior to its official release next year. 

Taking aim squarely at other full-size high-performance sport wagons like the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S Wagon and Audi RS 6 Avant performance, the latest M5 Touring is expected to offer the immense performance capabilities typical of BMW’s M Motorsport division’s vehicles, albeit in a more practical package. Details are largely scant at this point, though the marque has confirmed several elements on the forthcoming M car. For starters, we know the existing M5’s BMW M TwinPower Turbo 4.4-liter V-8 will be replaced with a state-of-the-art partially-electrified hybrid powertrain unit that’s said to be good for around 800hp and 750ft-lbs of torque — a major increase over the outgoing V8’s 617hp and 553ft-lbs. Sent to the ground via BMW’s M xDrive four-wheel drive system, this boost in power is also expected to result in a quicker 0-60mph time than the regular existing M5’s already impressive 3.2-second sprint. 

Like the regular M5 — and the M3 Touring — the M5 Touring sports a sleek set of redesigned bodywork complete with a mild aero kit that includes an aggressive front-end and grille design and a small rear spoiler. The upcoming M5 Touring will also be constructed around a frame that benefits from BMW’s latest precisely tuned chassis technology, plus will presumably feature a cutting-edge track-derived suspension package. The upcoming M5 Touring will also feature an extensive use of lightweight materials as well as a compound brake system with M Carbon ceramic brakes. 

The 2025 BMW M5 Touring is slated for an official release sometime next year.
