Chronology

Successor BMW 6 Series (G32)

The BMW 5 Series Gran Turismo (also referred to as "5 Series GT") models are the 5-door fastback versions of the F10 5 Series model range and use the model code F07. The F07 uses the F10 platform and shares many components with the other 5 Series models. It was released in 2009.

Engine choices were turbocharged straight-6 petrol, straight-6 diesel and V8 petrol. At launch, all models were rear-wheel drive ("sDrive"), with all-wheel drive ("xDrive") models being added in 2010.

For the following G30 generation, the Gran Turismo models were moved to the 6 Series model range and renamed the G32 6 Series Gran Turismo.[4]

Development and launch[edit]

On 30 January 2009, BMW released a video called "BMW Concept: Scribble Video", which outlined the thought process behind the design of the upcoming 5 Series GT.[5][6]

The 5 Series GT was introduced as the BMW Concept 5 Series Gran Turismo at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show.[7][8][9] The rear seats on the concept version are two folding bucket seats separated by a center console,[10][11] whereas the production model has three rear seats (although an option called "executive class seating" reverts to two rear seats). The concept version has 21-inch wheels and a paint colour called "Fluid Cuprite".

The production version of the 5 Series GT was unveiled at the 2009 International Motor Show Germany in Frankfurt[12] and sales began in the fourth quarter of 2009.[13][14] In most countries the 5 Series GT was sold alongside previous generation E60/E61 5 Series sedan and wagon/estate models, therefore the 5 Series GT was the first model released of the F07/F10/F11 5 Series generation. In the United States, the 5 Series wagon models were discontinued after 2010, therefore the 5 Series GT is considered a replacement for the E61 wagon.[15]

Body[edit]

530d GT- rear (Germany)

The 5 Series GT uses the platform from the F01 7 Series, resulting in a wheelbase of 120.7 in (3,066 mm), a front track width of 63.4 in (1,610 mm) and a rear track width of 65.1 in (1,654 mm).[16][17] When combined with the raised roofline, this results in more passenger and luggage space than the E61 5 Series wagon/estate and similar headroom to the E70 X5 and F01 7 Series.[18][19][20] The cargo capacity is 439 L (15.5 cu ft) with the seats raised, or (1,801 L (63.6 cu ft) with the rear seats flat and the partition stowed.[21][22]

The 5 Series GT has a coupe-like roofline, taller proportions than traditional fastback sedans and has been described as a "7 Series hatchback".[23][15] The 5 Series GT shares several design cues with that of the F01 7 Series, such as the design of the tail-lights.[24]

The tailgate has a unique two-way opening mechanism, which may be opened in a traditional car-like fashion, or the entire hatch may be open in a traditional SUV fashion for larger objects.[25][26] The 5 Series GT features frameless doors, which is a first for a four-door BMW model.[27][28][29]


With a kerb weight of 4,938 lb (2,240 kg) for the 2010 550i GT model, the 5 Series Gran Turismo is 400 lb (181 kg) heavier than the 2009 750i (which uses the same N63 4.4 L biturbo V8 engine).[26]

Equipment[edit]

The equipment available on the 5 Series GT includes:

Transmissions[edit]

All models use an 8-speed automatic transmission with a manual control ("Steptronic") mode.[38]

Models[edit]

Sales of all-wheel drive ("xDrive") models began with the 530d xDrive and 550i xDrive in June 2010, followed by 535d xDrive and 535i xDrive in September 2010.[39]
