BMW announced 5 Series with turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder engine


BMW just unveiled its new 2.0-liter turbocharged gasoline engine on the X1 crossover a few days ago, and now, it is announcing the addition of the BMW 5 Series to the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine family.

From our previous report, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine replaces the naturally aspirated V6 engine. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine is said to pump out about 245 hp and 258 lb-feet of torque. Not only this small engine put out more horsepower than the V6 it replaces, it also provides better fuel economy and lower CO2 emissions as well.

No official launch date set for the BMW 5 Series yet, but we expect to see both models by early 2012.
