3 series: The five-door Gran Turismo hatchback version of the 3 series goes on sale in September. Styling is similar to the larger 5-series Gran Turismo.
The Gran Turismo is 8 inches longer than the sedan at 182.5 inches, with a wheelbase that is 4 inches longer at 115 inches. It also is 3 inches taller at 59.4 inches.
The redesigned M3 high-performance model goes on sale in early 2014.
4 series: The redesigned 3-series coupe, which has been renamed the 4 series, goes on sale in October. The two-door has a sportier look and more premium feel than the sedan. The 4-series convertible debuts in early 2014.
A 4-series Gran Coupe model similar to the new 6-series Gran Coupe is expected in the fall of 2014.
5 series: The freshened sedan goes on sale this month with an updated V-8 engine and a new diesel variant: the new 535d with a twin-turbo 255 hp engine. The sedan and the GT will be re-engineered in 2017.
5-series Gran Turismo: The freshened five-door hatchback goes on sale this month. It has an additional 2 cubic feet of luggage capacity.
6 series: No changes are expected for the next few years.
7 series: BMW will replace its flagship in early 2016 and move from an all-steel to a carbon-and-aluminum body to reduce weight and make the sedan more agile.
The new generation will have a 50-state clean diesel, a plug-in hybrid and possibly a four-cylinder engine that may not be available in the United States. BMW is considering a high-performance all-wheel-drive M version of the 7 series for the first time, primarily for the United States, to compete with the Mercedes-Benz AMG S-class sedan.
8 series: BMW is considering a range-topping coupe to compete with new Mercedes-Benz S-class variants. The four-seat Pininfarina Gran Lusso Coupe on display this summer hints at the vehicle under discussion. The Gran Lusso is based on a modified rwd BMW 7-series platform and powered by the 760i's 6.0-liter, 536-hp turbocharged V-12. It has BMW design elements, including a sweeping silhouette, long hood and short trunk lid. BMW produced an 8 series from 1989 to 1999.
Toyota/BMW sports car: The two companies have agreed to work on a sports car, with each doing its own exterior. According to an insider, BMW is considering using the platform for a successor to the Z4 roadster. Talks between the two companies will continue through year end.
Z4: The two-seater will be redesigned in 2016. The timetable and design depend on whether BMW does the car alone or uses the joint platform developed with Toyota.
X1: The 1-series-based crossover will be redesigned in 2015 using BMW's new fwd platform.
X3: The crossover will be freshened in early 2016.
X4: BMW is adding a fifth crossover to its range to fill the gap between the X3 and the X5. The new coupelike X4 will debut either at the Los Angeles or Detroit auto show and go on sale by mid-2014. It will have the lower roofline and coupe styling of the larger X6 and be available with BMW's xDrive awd system.
X5: A redesigned version of the X5, BMW's largest crossover, goes on sale later this year. For the first time, BMW will offer an optional rwd variant -- the sDrive35i -- in addition to all-wheel drive. The rwd model will be powered by BMW's 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engine, which delivers 300 hp.
BMW decided not to make the X5 big enough for a third row of seats because a larger and heavier crossover would not allow the agility of today's model. The X5 has been lengthened by 1.3 inches to 192.4 inches, and height is increased by 0.6 inches, to 69.4 inches. Width remains the same at 76 inches; also unchanged is the 115.5-inch wheelbase.
X6: The crossover with coupe styling will be redesigned in early 2015, growing a few inches in the process. It will use the platform of the new-generation X5.
i3: The four-seat, rwd, electric car goes on sale in the second quarter of 2014. The i3's five-door exterior will be made of carbon fiber. The compact is powered by a 170-hp electric motor and will have a range of 80 to 100 miles on a charge.
BMW will offer an optional two-cylinder 0.65-liter engine range extender with a three-gallon gasoline tank to keep the car running after the battery range is depleted.
i8: The plug-in hybrid sports car debuts in mid-2014. It will use a modified electric drive system from the i3 that is fitted over the front axle, as well as a 1.5-liter three-cylinder internal combustion engine capable of 220 hp.
