Lightbulb Upcoming BMW model pipeline preview info - from G29 and G06 to F92 and beyond

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This thread contains the information about future production plans compiled by me from various leaks within BMW organization.

This top post is continuously updated: everything that becomes official is deleted, new research is added.

FAQ:

Can you guarantee that all of these models will come to market?
- No.

Can you tell me where you found this info?
- No.

Upcoming new models:

- These are just US market models, EU is simply too varied to type in all combinations.
- Model years marked with (?) are only best guesses.

2016 Updates
  • The next X5M and X6M will get the same engine as the M5, S63B44T4.
  • Production codes for the next 1 and 2:
    • F40 1er 5dr
    • F41 1er 3dr
    • G42 2er Cp
    • G43 2er Cv (model cancelled)
    • F44 2GC

1H 2017 Updates
  • The 530i (US), 540i, and M550i, will be re-engined in 07/19. I find it interesting that US is again going to be one year behind EU with the 4 cylinder replacement. The 530e will continue with the same engine/motor until at least 06/20.
  • M8: F91 Cab, F92 Coupe, F93 GC. Coming in 2019-2020.
  • F97 X3M will start production as a MY2020 vehicle (expect early 2019 intro) and will debut the S58 making 450hp+.
  • It's now confirmed that the US 30d models (G01 X3 30d and G20 330d) will in fact have the same engine as the European 20d models (Moderator: These are almost surely canceled, but this is not absolutely 100% confirmed).
  • Current EOP for G01 is November 2023, which means a shorter than usual 6 years and 4 months run. Both gas models will get TU engines in August 2019.
  • Like the F97 X3M, the F98 X4M is scheduled for MY2020 with market launch either simultaneous with the F97 or a very short period of time after.
  • M4 CS production will end no later than 06/19 (a full year before the scheduled EOP for the standard M4).

August 2017
Now, something new to this series: future engine lineup. This is likely not comprehensive, but should still cover a lot of ground and give you a good idea of what to expect in the future. I believe the timeframe covered by this information is 3 years, maybe 4, so each statement below that says "will happen" or "won't happen" should be read as "will/won't happen in the next three years". Also note the absence of any mention of hybrid or electric engines - I don't have a good enough picture to talk about those.
  • B37 will not get any major updates in RWD models anytime soon. The transverse (FWD) version has a TU planned. No new versions are planned.
  • B38 will get TU for all existing versions (starting with the recently updated F48 sDrive18i), with the exception of the 1.2L one and the one that goes into i8. No new versions are planned.
  • B47 is simple: TU for all versions with the exception of longitudinal 16d (will be dropped?)
  • B48 is starting to get its first TU (now available in Europe in F48 sDrive20i). The TU version will soon find its way into more UKL models, and then we'll see it in the CLAR cars, either with 07/18 "model upgrade measures" in G30, or at G20 intro. The only new version of this engine currently planned is the one that will go into UKL M35i, B48A20T1. The longitudinal versions will remain limited to 20i (B48B20M1) and 30i (B48B20O1).
  • B57 - TU for 30d and 40d, but not 50d.
  • B58 will get a TU, and with the TU will come a new version, B58B30O1. Note that up until now, all models, even the highest output X3 M40i, have been using the M0 version of this engine.
  • N63 is currently in its third iteration (TU2), and there will be the fourth one (TU3) that will add two new versions, one below (M3) and one above (T3) the current O2 (to be succeeded by O3). This actually looks somewhat illogical to me, since the future top version of the B58 and the future bottom version of N63 should end up really close to each other in output. I suspect one of them may not actually happen.
  • N74 used in the brand new Phantom is actually one iteration ahead of the one in M760i (TU2 vs TU1) in addition to being bigger (6.8L vs 6.6L). M760i will catch up with its own TU2 soon, but there will also be something new, probably RR specific (Cullinan Black Badge?): N74B68M2.
  • S55 will not get a TU, but will be replaced by S58 (full name S58B30T0), as we already know.
  • S63 just got its newest upgrade in F90. It's going to stick around for a while.

September 2017
  • S63 may get a small power bump in F95/F96 compared to F90. Really small.
  • F95 X5 M is confirmed as MY2020. 2019 is going to be very busy for M cars.
  • F44 2GC (2 Series Gran Coupe) is confirmed for the U.S.

November 2017
  • Confirmed engine upgrades (B48TU, B58TU, N63TU3):
    • 3/19 - G11/G12 LCI with all upgraded engines (BTW, 750i becomes xDrive only at that point)
    • 7/19 - US B48 G3x and all B58 and N63 G3x
    • 8/19 - all G01/G02
  • EOP for G32 is 6/24.
  • M2 CSL is a real thing.
  • G08 (X3 long wheelbase) is being considered for other countries besides China, including US/Canada.
  • Regular readers will remember that I first reported about a weird 1.6L version of B48 a couple of years ago and couldn't figure out what or why or when. Now we have the answer: it will be used in some models with 20i designation and will produce only 170hp. It will go into G20, G01, and later other models. Right now it seems that this engine is targeted primarily or exclusively at 3rd world markets.

December 2017
  • The target power output for S58, the engine to be used in M3/M4/X3M/X4M, is 475hp.
  • Competition models of the X3M/X4M will be available, possibly right at SOP.
  • F91 (Conv) and F92 (Coupe) M8 begins production in 2019 as MY2020. The F90 drivetrain will carry over without changes, though there's the possibility of a very slight power output increase on the US models. The Competition model will also be available at SOP.
  • There are now five different M cars that will come to market in 2019. This is madness.
  • G11/G12 LCI scheduled for early 2019 is mostly about putting together all the pieces I wrote about earlier: 750i goes up to 530hp with the new revision of N63, 740i goes up to 335hp with the new revision of B58, and the new 745e (replacing 740e) will make 390hp. Live Cockpit (all-digital instrument panel) will be standard and laser lights will be optional. The most interesting bit is that G11 could return to North America.

February 2018
  • Supra details: three engines (EU-only 195hp 20i, 255hp 30i, and 335hp 40i - and this means the 380hp Z4 M40i will be offered only by BMW and only in North America and a few other non-EU markets). Intro later this year, common sense suggests it will be simultaneous with Z4. It will be Toyota in name and body design only - everything inside the car is the same familiar BMW stuff: same options, same colors, same interior materials. Speaking of colors, it feels almost like a throwback to the 00s: Glacier Silver, Atacama Yellow, and Crimson Red are coming back, though there'll also be a new matte gray. For the interior, you'll be able to choose between fabric, alcantara, and leather, and (the gods have heard us!) all of these choices will be available in the U.S. Wheels: 17" standard with 18" and 19" optional on 20i and 30i, 18" standard and 19" optional on 40i. 40i gets standard M sport diff, while on 30i it will be optional in something that BMW would call "ZMP". Market positioning for the car seems to be distinctly lower than BMW, for example, the barebones 30i will have manual seat adjustments and no nav system. And, finally (cue the sad trombone): all models are automatic only.

April 2018
  • F40 M135i xDrive: I don't usually report on non-US models, but I feel I should make an exception here since the US M235i GC will be virtually the same car in a different body. So, here's what to expect: same engine as X2 M35i (300hp version of transverse B48), sport automatic only, xDrive only, M Sport configuration includes as standard: bodywork, suspension (non-adaptive), brakes, steering rack, 18" wheels. Regular sport seats will be standard, with upgraded M Sport seats optional. As far as other options, pretty much anything you can add to a G20 will be available on F40 too (well, not rear wheel drive, of course). Still on track for 07/19 SOP.

May 2018
  • G15 840i RWD and xDrive (B58TÜ, 335hp) will arrive in 2019 as MY2020.
  • G16 8GC will be introduced at the same time in 2019 with full model range: 840i RWD and xDrive, M850i, and non-US 840d.
  • G20 is confirmed to use a 48V electrical system.
  • G20 future model list as it stands now (other models are possible, but no earlier than late 2019):
    • 318d: non-US, B47, 148hp, manual and automatic, RWD.
    • 330d: non-US, B57, 262hp, automatic RWD and xDrive (xDrive possibly delayed intro).
    • M340i: all markets, B58, 385hp, automatic RWD (US only) and xDrive, delayed intro.
    • 330e: all markets, B48+electic motor, 248hp, automatic RWD and xDrive (xDrive US only), delayed intro, with US possibly having to wait longer than Europe.
  • F48 X1 LCI will arrive for MY2020. It will have the upgraded version of B48 (though same power output as before), some cosmetic changes, new wheels, infotainment update, and that's about it - nothing major. M35i is not confirmed yet.
  • Regarding the rumors of M760i going away at LCI: not true, it will continue in all markets.
  • G01/G02 are confirmed for engine upgrades for MY2020. 30i remains at 248hp, M40i gets a bump to 385hp.
  • G05 X5 xDrive45e iPerformance (same 390hp powertrain that will be seen first in 745e LCI) will be available in 2019 for MY2020.
  • G06 will be released in mid-2019 for MY2020 with sDrive40i, xDrive40i, M50i. M50i will use the same version of N63 as just announced for M850i, producing 530hp. One interesting option that seems specific to G06 at the moment: "Iconic Glow Kidneys". Because the poor owners of the previous X6 models have been suffering from not being visible enough on the road.
  • Both G05 X5 and G07 X7 xDrive50i will replace their launch version of N63 (456hp) with the same new 530hp engine and become X5/X7 M50i. Here's finally your explanation why they were sticking with "xDrive50i": "M50i" was reserved for the more powerful engine.
July 2018
  • It would be reasonable to expect the US-only M2 Racing (new Spec class?) to appear in early 2020 and the worldwide M2 CSL - in mid-2020 as MY2021, for a one year run.
  • MY2020 G30 530i and 540i and G32 640i will get the updated B46 (no change in output) and B58 (bumped to 335hp) engines as predicted previously, along with the new instrument panel as standard. M550i will move to the new 530hp N63.
  • F44 2GC will arrive in late 2019 as MY2020. The engines are the 228hp familiar from X1 and X2 and the 300hp we'll soon see in X2.
July 2018 part deux
  • Funny enough, F94 X7M was (is?) under consideration.
  • G24 (next 3GT) has been canceled. Good riddance.
  • G26 will keep the hatchback. There are hints that it's been delayed until 07/21.
  • At this time the only engine planned for G42 2er Coupe is B48.
  • I20 iNext will have at least two performance levels.
August 2018
  • G01 X3 and G02 X4 will be getting the new dash next year for MY2020. That's also when we'll see the hybrid X3 xDrive30e with the same motor as the upcoming G20 330e, uprated to 275hp.
  • US G05 X5 xDrive40d (aka 30d in all other countries) is somehow still alive for the release next year.
  • EOP for F34 and F36 has been moved to 06/21. The former is likely to compensate for the cancellation of G24 and the latter should be seen as evidence of the next 4GC needing extra development time so it can become a more interesting (unusual?) car than its predecessor.
October 2018
  • The initial release of i4 will have an 80kWh battery and the choice of a single or dual motor drivetrain.
  • G80 M3 and G82 M4 Coupe currently have more variants than we're used to seeing. First of all, it appears the manuals are still alive. However, there are hints that these cars will be available as both RWD and xDrive. For the first time in years, BMW is not going to force you into a car they think is best - they'll let you choose. On top of that, there could be two different performance trims right out of the gate - you'll get a Competition model that's more different from the base M3/M4 than the old Competition Packages would provide.
  • On the other hand, G83 M4 Cabrio would have a more limited selection: a single model with the choice of transmission.
  • G42 (the next 2er Coupe) will be produced from 08/21 to 03/29 and will possibly be made primarily or entirely in Mexico.
November 2018
  • Production lifetimes for the newly introduced models (see the EOP list at the top of the post).
  • BMW i4 is not going to be built from the ground up as a BEV. Instead, it will be one of the versions of G26 (the next 4GC), similar to the recently introduced iX3, though hopefully with better performance. It will start as a RWD or AWD with 80kWh battery. If you want a clean sheet BEV, you'll have to wait for the I20. How closely the iNext concept reflects that future production car remains to be seen. Both i4 and I20 should be expected around 2021. In other words, I can confirm the AutoExpress report here: https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/bmw/10...stream-in-2021
  • G42 is confirmed to be built in Mexico.

I'm surprised that they decided to use almost the same engine for the new x5m/x6m. Sad that bmw m can't make a new engine for every new body style anymore. Also by auto, does that mean dct or just a regular automatic or both? It seems like both but just want to be 100 percent.

It's not the same engine exactly. E70 X5M uses the O0 revision, F10 M5 uses T0, and F85/F86 will come with T2, so I would expect about 10hp/10lbs bump. This is in line with F15 using the same engines as E70, benefiting instead from lighter weight and improved drivetrain. And it's been the norm for a very long time now for BMW to use the same engine with minor variations in many different models.

No idea what kind of transmission will be there - the source doesn't specify that.

I've just found the September copy of the same data and edited the original post.

Added:
- F30 LCI
- F48 (new X1)
- F54
- G11/G12
- F15 X5 28i engine (ridiculous, in my opinion)
- F45 220i

And something close to the final confirmation that some US F31 and F34 RWD versions that existed in development are not making it to production (basically, whoever's been waiting for non-sedan RWD 3 series to come to the US - my advice is to give up).

F20 LCI (not listed here since it's EU only) and F30 LCI give us a good view into BMW's plans for the transition to B-series engines. It seems that, for a given displacement, the higher-output versions of the current engines will continue, while their lower-output versions will be replaced. So, for F30 LCI we'll have 320i with B48 and 335i with B58, but 328i will continue with N20/26. F20 M135i, having the higher output version of N55, will continue with it (just like N20 125i and N13 118i), while most other F20s will transition to B37/B38/B47. Based on G11/12, there's also no 8-cylinder engine in B-series lineup yet, so N63 is also staying.

F48 X1 is confirmed to be FWD (US is xDrive only, but EU will get FWD).

There's a whole new range of new production code designations for F06/12/13, I'm not clear what this is about yet.

This one is actually more interesting than I thought. It's the xDrive40E model. N20 motor with "40e" designation seems to suggest that the F15 will be a deeper hybrid with a larger electric motor than the existing ActiveHybrid models.

One more thing I only noticed just now: there's no model type reservation for US market F31 LCI RWD. This is the final nail in the coffin for our hopes to get a RWD wagon.

The X1 is outselling the F31 by a considerable margin. The new X1 arrives around the same time as the LCI F31. Expect a shift in priorities.

Should this make me happy? Shift of priorities from RWD wagons to FWD tall CUV? Is this a Toyota forum?

The current X1, on the other hand, is a brilliant car. Its only problem is it's much smaller on the inside than F31.

Ynguldyn, thanks for this interesting post.

Can you distinguish the 435GC according to the data? If yes, does it look like it will also get the N55 engine vs B58?

Can you distinguish the 435GC according to the data? If yes, does it look like it will also get the N55 engine vs B58?
I just saw that you in fact listed F36, not F32, which would mean the GC would get the N55 also according to your list.

Should this make me happy? Shift of priorities from RWD wagons to FWD tall CUV? Is this a Toyota forum?

The current X1, on the other hand, is a brilliant car. Its only problem is it's much smaller on the inside than F31.
Exactly why we bought the X1 over the F31. The current 3er is too large for our desires. A 2GC would go a long way towards making me want another BMW.

And the X1 is RWD and cost approx $15k less, once optionned. What a surprise that it sells in larger volumes, its a bargain (or more precisely, the F31 is a robbery, that's why I don't currently own one). Now if the next X1 is FW, what makes it better than the CX5 or any random japanese thing with the "premium" package is not very clear. Meanwhile the F31 is expected to remain priced to not-sale.

Interesting F30 LCI will be one of the first real tastes of the longitudinal applications for the new modular 0.5l cylinder engine design if the chart can be believed.

We bought an f34 instead of f31 for more space and the n55. Not surprising if the RWD option is being dropped, most people want to never think about breaking traction. Though it is possible to break traction in our xDrive f34, you have to try pretty hard

+1 BMW doesn't want the F31 to sell well. They want people buying the more profitable X3.

B48 engine in the 320i? Will this be a ~200 hp engine? Do we know anything about the B-series engines yet?

The interesting thing about 2014 is it is all about product, product that sells , product that is established and product that will appeal to new and existing customers.

Starting with the NAIAS will be the World Premiere of the BMW M3 and M4 Coupe and the BMW 2er Coupe.

For Geneva in March we will see the launch of the BMW 4er Gran Coupe and the first FWD BMW the 2er Active Tourer.

In April will be the joint World Premiere at the NYIAS and Leipzig show in Germany of the new BMW X4 and revised BMW X3.

Leipzig will also introduce another European model.

A new Concept car will be unveiled in April prior to the Beijing Auto show this years destination for the Auto China event.

The villa d'este will see an example of further design collaboration.

Making its premiere in one of its largest markets will be the all new BMW X6 Sports Activity Coupe at the Moscow Auto show in August.

On the a Road to Paris the new 2er Cabrio will Premiere in the city of lights as will two new M models.

It's the same engine as the recently unveiled F56 Mini Cooper S, 189bhp/207lb-ft.

Two new M-models likely means F82 M4 Cabrio and F85 X5M.

X6M LCI came out last year.
