     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 now continuously updated: everything that becomes official is deleted, new research is added.

FAQ:

Can you tell me when these models are coming out?
- Not anymore.

Can you tell me which of these models will come to market, and which ones we'll never see?
- No.

What options will be available on these cars?
- I list everything that could be found on at least one model; for specific models, I provide the most interesting options known to be available on them.

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.

Consolidated list of 2015 updates:
  • G08 X3 LWB is planned for China.
  • The new generation of the Phantom, just like the Cullinan, will be built on the new 7-series platform.
  • There are some hints that B48 may get a version with 400cc per cylinder displacement. This makes as little sense to me as to y'all, considering all the noise about 500cc being the perfect size and the single parts bin for all B engines, but still there it is.
  • BMW is working on more driver assist features. In the future, the vehicle will inform the driver about the possibility of overtaking, the right of way, and pedestrians behind the vehicle.
  • F90 M5 (spy pics) is confirmed with the same engine as the current M5 (tweaks are possible of course) and xDrive only.
  • (So far unconfirmed, but the signals are strong) All UKL platform cars (both BMW and Mini) are going to get the dual clutch transmission some time in 2017.
  • 530e will have more power than 330e, by 30hp or so. It'll be a late intro model, you shouldn't expect it before 2017 calendar year. There'll be both RWD and xDrive versions.

February 2016 update:
  • F97 X3M (G01 based) and F98 X4M (G02 based) are coming.
  • i3, in addition to the bigger battery, will get another (sportier?) version called i3s
  • F82 M4 CS (Clubsport) is apparently a thing.
  • I15 i8 Roadster is real.

June 2016 update:
I've cleaned up everything that's become official per MY2017 ordering guides. To replace it, here's some long overdue news looking out a couple of years ahead. The future model list at the top of the post is now more or less current.
  • 2019 3 series (G20) will have mostly the same model designations we have today on F30, with just some relatively small changes: 320i (if it comes to the U.S.) will get the B46 engine, 328d will get B47 and become 330d (which RTW model it will correspond to is unknown atm, or maybe it won't come at all), and, like most of us have been expecting, 340i will now be called M340i (a small power output bump is virtually guaranteed). RTW G20 will cover the range from 318i to M340i and from 316d to M340d.
  • Just like Scott promised, no more wagons for this side of the pond. You want a Touring - grab an F31 while you still can. I have.
  • G30 M550i will exist in RWD form after all.
  • i3 will continue evolving - there'll be another iteration of it, and that's when we could get the i3s version, whatever it's gonna be.
  • In addition to the gas and diesel versions of the G01 X3 I mentioned before, there'll be a hybrid, 30e.
  • The full range of F39 X2 will include not just x28i, but also s28i and (B48 is maturing!) AWD M35i.
  • G02 X4 will be available as x30i and x40i, and a RTW-only diesel, nothing fancy here.
  • G14 convertible and G15 coupe 8 series. Yes, they will come. Moving on.
  • G05 X5 is indeed coming in 2018, shortening the F15's lifecycle to just five years. The product range will remain pretty much the same, with 35i and 35d becoming 40i and 40d, which should surprise exactly no one.
  • G07 X7 will be introduced at approximately the same time (it's unlikely BMW will do both X5 and X7 simultaneously, but the spacing won't be more than a few months apart). U.S. gets x40i, x40d, and x50i, while RTW will also have x30i and x30d.

July 2016
* The trend to assign "M Performance" to the top not-the-real-M model continues with G01 X3 M40i.
* G32 is now a 6.

August 2016
* US may not get the diesel G20 after all, and 320i is questionable too.
* Try spotting the other piece of news in the change to a previous update.

October 2016
* It looks like the upcoming M4 CS model (available at LCI next year) will be M4 + comp pack + probably some non-drivetrain bits off the GTS.

November 2016
(#notmypresident edition)
* The next M5, X5M, and X6M will all get the same engine, S63B44T4. Note that the latest production iteration of this engine is T2. My best guess for the reasons for skipping T3 is that T3 did exist, but the engineers went further and made a still better version.
* F22/F23/F87 LCI is indeed next year for MY 2018 (calendar year 2017). Don't expect major changes, this looks to be a very mild refresh.
* Also confirmed for MY 2018 is the G32 6GT. It is definitely getting the 6xx designations, it is now a done deal.

November 2016 take 2
* US M550i RWD on again off again model is finally no more.
* For 2018 BMW X2, these are the more interesting options that we don't have on X1: 19" RFT or 20" non-RFT with M Sport, adaptive suspension (likely as a part of M Sport), Galvanic Gold paint, Guidance Package.
* 2018 BMW X3: 30i will have the same power as other existing x30i (252hp), while M40i will have 335hp. Sport seats will be standard. Notable options: M Sport brakes, 20" non-RFT or 21" RFT with M Sport, sport suspension with M Sport or adaptive suspension, many comfort options trickling down from 7er and 5er (acoustic glass, ambient air, ambient lighting, display key, ventilated seats, even gesture control - sign of things to come on G20?), Carbon Black paint (remember that beauty? good to see it making a comeback) and the new Phytonic Blue (looks like slightly grayer Mediterranean Blue). Dakota leather will be replaced by a new type.
* Production codes for the next 1 and 2: F40, F41, G42, G43, F44. I wonder why the coupe and the convertible are G while the rest are F...

Actually, I know that the last couple of months y'all have been waiting for something else. Well, your prayers have finally been answered: I can confirm that M2 CS will differ from the regular M2 in exactly the way you wanted. Though it'll be slightly detuned compared to M3/M4, to 400hp. M2 CS is MY2019, coming in calendar year 2018.

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?

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.

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.

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.
