2 series: In the first half of 2020, the BMW 2-series coupe and convertible will be joined by a new all-wheel- drive four-door 2-series Gran Coupe.
The Gran Coupe will be built on the same platform that underpins the Mini Clubman and Countryman as well as a new BMW 1 series that will not be sold in the U.S. The global 2-series Gran Coupe will be offered in the U.S. with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
3 series: The redesigned 3-series sedan arrived in U.S. stores at the end of 2018. The M340i and M340i xDrive sedans went on sale this summer. The M3 is due for a redesign in 2020. A revived 3-series plug-in hybrid is expected to appear by summer 2020. The 3-series Gran Turismo has been discontinued.
i3: The small battery-electric car received a larger 42.2-kilowatt-hour battery and greater driving range in 2018. A new generation could arrive in first half 2022.
4 series: The coupe and convertible will be redesigned — the coupe in the second half of 2020 and the convertible in the first half of 2021. The redesigned 4 series will move to the CLAR platform and share the 3-series powertrain.
A redesign of the four-door Gran Coupe is expected in the second half of 2021. That will have a higher roofline and roomier interior and could be renamed as a 4-series GT. A mild-hybrid (48-volt) version of the 4 series will follow in 2022. A plug-in hybrid is also possible.
Z4: A redesigned Z4 arrived this year, with a new lightweight platform and updated engines. A fabric roof has replaced the car's retractable hard top. It should get a freshening in 2023.
There has been chatter about an M version of the Z4, but that may prove unlikely, given the low sales volume of two-door roadsters in general.
i4: The EV will launch in the first half of 2021, promising more than 300 miles of battery range. The sporty four-door coupe is based on the i Vision Dynamics concept unveiled at the 2017 Frankfurt auto show. The i4, built on BMW's lightweight modular CLAR platform, will be capable of doing 0 to 60 mph in four seconds.
5 series: The midsize sedan is due for a freshening in the second half of 2020 and a redesign in second half of 2023. In 2020, the M series version could see a power upgrade from 456 hp to 523 hp. Looking ahead, the 5 series will include at least two fully electric drivetrains, according to BMW Blog.
6 series: Both the 6-series GT and Gran Coupe end production in 2019 and will be discontinued in the U.S.
7 series: The large luxury sedan received a freshening and powertrain improvements in the second quarter of this year and will be redesigned in the second half of 2022. It will continue to be based on the CLAR platform and offer Level 3 autonomous driving technology. The next 7 series is rumored to come with an ultraluxe version that would compete with the Mercedes-Maybach S class.
8 series: BMW is broadening its flagship model range with the U.S. arrival of the 2020 8-series Gran Coupe in September. The four-door five-seater — a first for the 8 series — is 9 inches longer, 1.2 inches wider and 2.2 inches taller than the 8-series coupe and features a wheelbase that is 7.9 inches longer. The Gran Coupe rwd 840i and awd 840i xDrive variants are powered by BMW's turbo 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine. The M850i xDrive performance variant has a turbo 4.4-liter V-8. Both engines feature an updated eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission.
An awd M8, planned for this year, will be powered by a 4.4-liter V-8 twin-turbo engine that delivers 600 hp, with the Competition version making 617 hp. An M8 Gran Coupe will be added in 2020.
i8: Last year, BMW freshened the i8 coupe and introduced a roadster version. Total output increased to 369 hp, up 12 hp from the previous model year.
A replacement model for the i8 may be expected in 2022. It will be inspired by the Vision M Next concept, a 600-hp plug-in hybrid that offers a choice of electric awd and pure rwd, with full-electric propulsion or the power of a turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine.
iNext: The new battery-electric crossover will arrive in the U.S. in 2021. It will likely be badged i6 and come in three versions, including rwd and awd variants, according to Automobile. The base version will be powered by a 63-kWh battery pack and deliver 335 hp and 285 miles of range.
X1: The freshened version of the small crossover is likely to arrive this fall. The model is slated for a redesign in the second half of 2022.
X2: BMW has positioned the X2 as a sportier alternative to the X1. The X2 is shorter and lower than the X1, with different exterior styling. A freshening is expected in 2021, with a redesign as early as 2024.
X3: In its third generation, the X3 crossover generally maintains its overall exterior dimensions, although the wheelbase has grown 2.2 inches. An X3 M was launched this year. It's powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder that can deliver 473 hp. A Competition version dials it up to 503 hp. The X3, BMW's volume leader, is set for a freshening in the first half of 2021 and a redesign in the second half of 2023. A plug-in hybrid could arrive in 2020.
iX3: The battery-electric variant of the X3 should go on sale in early 2021 and will feature an electric motor free of rare earth elements. It is expected to have a 270-hp electric motor and a 70-kWh battery delivering a range of over 200 miles.
X4: The compact crossover got a redesign last summer. In addition to receiving new engines, the second-generation X4 is lighter, more efficient and roomier. The 2019 X4 xDrive30i is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine producing 248 hp. The 2019 X4 M40i is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine producing 355 hp. An X4 M-series variant launched in the first half of this year. The X4 will get a freshening in first half of 2022 and a redesign in the second half of 2024.
X5: The midsize crossover received a redesign in November. The fourth-generation X5 has grown in every dimension — it's wider, longer and higher, with new and higher-horsepower engines. An M50i model will arrive this fall with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 engine delivering 523 hp. An updated plug-in hybrid is expected in the second quarter of 2020. That model will be powered by a turbo inline-six engine, coupled with an electric motor, delivering a combined 394 hp. The PHEV will go from 0 to 62 mph in 5.6 seconds. The X5 will get a freshening by late 2022. A redesign of the X5 M series is planned in 2020.
