BMW adds xDrive AWD to 5 Series GT
BMW is still quite confident in its 5 Series Gran Turismo (GT) model, and has just announced that it will be adding its xDrive all-wheel drive system to the crossover-ish model.
The new technology will be on display at the upcoming Beijing Motor Show and will slowly appear in all of the major markets, including Asia, Europe and North America. The first versions that will be getting AWD will be the 550i and the 530d GT editions, this June.
After that, BMW will also throw xDrive in the 535i and the 535d version of its 5 Series Gran Turismo in September, this year. While it’s at it, the company also said that xDrive is going to appear for the 740d 7 Series by the end of the year.
