When it introduces the new 2010 5-series GT later this year to American shoppers, BMW may quietly wave goodbye to its traditional 5-Series station wagon.

"It's possible" that the new hatchback GT and its controversially shaped cargo area could take the spot in the lineup occupied by the 2009 BMW 5-Series wagon. The new GT could fit better with BMW's sporting image in the States, and would give the German automaker a more visually distinctive vehicle to sell against the likes of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class wagon, which also arrives in the U.S. in the next nine months.

BMW plans to launch the new 5-Series GT late this year. The first model to make its debut will be a 550i GT, outfitted with BMW's twin-turbocharged, 4.4-liter V-8 engine. Six-cylinder versions, and GTs with xDrive all-wheel drive, will follow in 2010.

TheCarConnection has previewed the 2010 BMW 5-Series GT with technical details and dozens of high-resolution photos;  stay tuned for more on the new GT from the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show in September.
