2011 BMW 5 Series - Click above for high-res image gallery
The 5 Series
is an important model for BMW
, particularly in North America where it's the brand's second best seller behind the 3 Series
. Heading into 2010, BMW has expanded its mid-size line with the new Gran Turismo
body style already on sale. However, the volume leader for the 5 Series is the four-door sedan, which officially debuts today. The 2011 model transitions to a new platform architecture shared with the latest 7 Series
as well as the upcoming Rolls-Royce Ghost
. The 5 Series sedan gets a four-inch shorter wheelbase than its siblings, but at 116.9 inches, it still stretches well past its competition. The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class
runs a mere 113.1 inches between its axles and the Cadillac CTS
is 113.4 inches.
From a technical perspective, the new 5 Series picks up much of what can be found in the 7 Series and the Gran Turismo. Read on after the jump to learn more about it.
UPDATE: Nine videos added and more images uploaded into gallery.
