BMW will launch the next 5-Series in 2009 and the station wagon variant in 2010. The new 5-series will feature toned-down creases and edges, less-busy details, and a more elegant overall appearance. Inside there will be a new instrument panel, an optional head-up display, and a center console angled toward the driver.

The engines options for the new 5-Series should include a 3.0-liter six with 238 hp (525i); a direct-injection 3.0-liter six with 272 hp (530i/xi); a twin-turbo, direct-injection 3.0-liter six with 306 hp (535i/xi); a 4.8-liter V-8 with 367 hp (540i); a twin-turbo, direct-injection 4.4-liter V-8 with 408 hp (550i/xi).

A 5.5 liter V10 engine with an output of 550 hp is due for late 2010.
