5 series, why no HP?

What's BMW's rationale for keeping the 5 series so low in HP? (other than the M of course)....

the 528 isn't a current model, neither is the 535i, at least they're not listed on the "build your own" on BMWUSA.

525i 215
525xi 215
530i 255
550 360


For a big 4 door sedan, that's not a lot of HP, with the exception of the 550.

(i'm just asking, i don't follow the 5 series much, i was bored a few days ago and built one out and was surprised at the low HP #'s)

What engines are in the '07's?

For me is not just a question of hp….
It's a question of torque!!
The real improvement in BMW engines (besides fuel economy and low emission specs) is TORQUE.
That’s just my opinion.
