Have you traded into a new 5 Series or the bonkers M5 600 horsepower sedan? Regrettably, because BMW is currently working on a facelift for the car.
2021 BMW M5 Exterior
We still remember how little the updates for the old model, the F10 were, simply a few tweaks to the headlights and bumper. But the 5 Series prototype caught by our spies suggests big updates are on their method.
Look at the headlights. Typically, the 5er has some hexagonal halos, 4 of them. However, here, we see little dots in the middle. Not just is this a hit for Later lighting, but likewise a complete refresh of the front end.
2021 BMW M5 Engine
The 2021 prototype we’re handling here is certainly a hybrid. For this model year, the amazed 530e and its 248 horsepower and 310 pound-feet (420 Newton-meters) of torque are getting the newest battery cell technology for extra EV-only range. Nevertheless, this model looks rather aggressive. In truth, you can even see some M badges peaking out from under the camouflage.
A more powerful setup currently exists in the X5, so we’re calling it: it’s a 545e with 394 HP and 600 Nm of torque (443 lb-ft), the primary distinction being it has six cylinders instead of four.
It’s worth pointing out that BMW is amongst the very first German carmakers with a hybrid. Does anybody keep in mind the ActiveHybrid5? It didn’t do so well, though.
Meanwhile, the M5 facelift is enjoying its first outing with a new style for the front bumper, along with a somewhat bigger grille. The headlights seem the old ones, making it easy to identify what’s happening on that 545e.
At this moment, it’s unclear if the famous 4.5-liter twin-turbo V8 will exceed its standard 600 horsepower. Independent dyno tests reveal it, makes about 650-680, so it does not truly matter what number BMW puts out.
