bmw m5 2025

The BMW M5 has long stood at the pinnacle of sports sedan performance. For nearly 40 years, it has delivered exhilarating power and handling in an understated luxury package. Now, the M5 is set to enter a new era of electrified performance with the unveiling of the 2025 model.

Let's take an in-depth look at what we know so far about the groundbreaking 2025 BMW M5.

Powertrain - Electrified V8 Power

The biggest news is under the hood. The 2025 BMW M5 will feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain, marking the first time an electrified setup has powered the M5.

As per BMW M CEO Frank van Meel, the M5 will utilize the same electrified V8 system found in the controversial XM SUV. This twin-turbo 4.4L V8 will pair with an electric motor to deliver astonishing output.

Early rumors pointed to a total system output exceeding 700 horsepower. The latest intel from a reputable BMW insider pegs the total output at 718 HP - 577 from the V8 and 194 from the electric motor.

This would represent a massive jump from the 617 HP produced by the outgoing M5's V8 engine. Suffice to say, that electrification will push the M5's performance into a new stratosphere.

This plug-in hybrid setup also enables pure electric driving - BMW states the 2025 M5 will have an all-electric range of 43 miles (70 km). Owners can enjoy silent emission-free cruising for shorter trips while unleashing the combined power of the hybrid system for maximum performance when desired.

For those wondering, the electrified V8 powertrain transfers power to all four wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission.

Aggressive Styling with Functional Upgrades

Style-wise, the 2025 M5 retains the handsome styling of the standard 5-series with some aggressive tweaks. Signatures like the large kidney grille remain, but are enhanced by sportier bumpers with larger intakes. The front fascia also gets some sculpted edges for extra flair.

Out back, a subtle lip spoiler, quad exhaust tips, and diffuser-style trim help optimize aerodynamics while giving the M5 a purposeful stance.

Function matches form, with upgrades like staggered 20/21-inch wheels shod in wide performance rubber, massive brakes with blue M-badged calipers, and adaptive M suspension with stiffer anti-roll bars.

These hardware upgrades work in concert with rear-wheel steering, dynamic engine and transmission mounts, and a bevy of selectable drive modes to sharpen the M5's reflexes.

As revealed in testing footage, the M5 remains poised and planted even while being pushed hard on the Nurburgring's challenging corners.

Spacious, Tech-Laden Cabin with M Touches

Inside, the driver-focused cockpit melds technology with luxury. BMW's latest iDrive 8 system is displayed on a curved screen that spans the dashboard. The slick graphics and intuitive controls make accessing menus and features a breeze.

Premium materials abound, with leather seats, aluminum trim, and soft-touch surfaces. Front seats have extendable bolsters to hold occupants snugly in place during hard cornering. The subdued palette and conservative shapes maintain the M5's upscale ambiance, while M badging and accents provide sporty visual flair.

Passenger space is generous, especially in the stretched wheelbase of the 5-series sedan. The low rear deck of the sedan also leaves ample trunk room despite the hybrid battery pack. Those needing more cargo room can opt for the first-ever M5 Touring wagon coming to the US.

First-Ever M5 Touring Coming to the US

In addition to the M5 sedan, BMW is bringing the legendary M5 Touring wagon to the United States for the first time ever. Set to launch in late 2024 as a 2025 model, the M5 Touring will feature the same electrified V8 powertrain as the sedan.

Early glimpses of camouflaged M5 Touring prototypes confirm the aggressive styling details carrying over from the M5 sedan. Naturally, the Touring gains extra cargo room thanks to its long roof body style.

With the added traction of all-wheel drive and adaptive suspension keeping power in check, the M5 Touring promises to be the ultimate family hauler. Load up the kids and gear for a trip, flick it into M mode, and experience performance wagon nirvana!

Cutting-Edge Tech and Driver Aids

BMW packs the latest tech and cutting-edge driver aids into the 2025 M5 to match its prodigious performance.

Active safety features include:

  • Collision mitigation braking

Expected Pricing and Release Date

The 2025 BMW M5 sedan is expected to start around $120,000 USD, a reasonable jump from the 2023 M5's base price of $109,900.

According to reports, production of the M5 sedan will begin in July 2024. Expect an official unveiling 1-2 months prior, likely at an auto show in early 2024.

The M5 Touring should hit production in November 2024 as a 2025 model. Pricing remains unannounced but will carry a premium over the sedan.
