Default Report: BMW X4 F26 Confirmed For Production by BMW CEO










We have already heard many rumors about this model and this time, the highly anticipated BMW X4 comes back in public attention. In an interview with German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, Norbert Reithofer, BMW CEO, goes on record about the upcoming X4 which will be built under the internal codename F26, so the X4 will hit the market pretty soon.
According to the German report, the CEO says the BMW X4 will be approximately 4.65 metre long and feature a similar design layout to the BMW X6, so it might be pretty similar with the renderings published two months ago (you can see the in the photo gallery below).
As for the technical aspects, official details are yet to be announced, but according to some rumors, the new BMW X4 is expected to come with the same powertrain options as seen in the BMW X3, including both four and six-cylinder petrol and gasoline engines. Beside this, all models are also expected to feature the AWD X-drive technology, along with the stop / start system.
While some rumors indicates that beside this model an X3M, an X4M is also on the way, the new BMW X4 is said to be lined up for a launch some time in 2014.
Note: The image above is a rendering, an artist interpretation. The final model might look totally different.

I'll copypasta my comment from the BMWBlog website: "Looks like a baby X6. As much as I want to hate it, I just can't."

I've been one of the biggest advocates for BMW to stop branching out with their damn nomenclature. However, for some reason, I like this SAV.

Can't blame her. As much as I love the 1er too, it just isn't practical. I'm hoping we'll be in a spot financially to be able to get an F30 335i next Spring/Summer. You can bet your ass I'll be doing European Delivery too!

Maybe by the time this X4 is out, we can add it to the stable alongside the 335i.

My one real complaint with these cars: They have no fucking trunk space. At least not compared to a typical suv.

I dont know, i think they are for what it would be used for.

It would be my daily driver and she still has the Lincoln LS for her daily/family car. And the GTi will stay as a fun car/project car.

I can get a 135i for 29k, if i went up to a 335i it would take me to 34 or 35k iirc...


....a 1M would be 44k for me btw. lol

Per the BMW military sales rep over, we are getting the 1M as part of the military sales starting in NOV and BMW has committed to filling all orders that come in for them.

BMW has gone from one of the best name systems for their model lineup to one of the most confusing... to many names is a bad thing, simplify the names even if you want to offer more models. X3,X4,X5,X6 (which should actually be between the X4 and X5 based on size?) You really need a compact, mid, and full SUV... not 4 that still doesn't reach a true full size...

New 2018 BMW X4 fully unveiled!




The second generation G02 BMW X4 has just been spotted fully unveiled on US soil. South Carolina-based spy photographer Palbay has outdone himself giving us



The second generation G02 BMW X4 has just been spotted fully unveiled on US soil. South Carolina-based spy photographer Palbay has outdone himself giving us an early look at the design of the new X4. The spy shots are somewhat unusual since the prototype has no camouflage and its out in the open ahead of the start of communication.
The front-end of the G02 X4 is clearly inspired by the recently unveiled X3, with slimmer headlights, a more upright nose and a massive kidney grille. The bottom section of the bumper is dominated by a large center opening, likely specific to an M Performance model, as well by large air intakes with a chrome bar running horizontally.




The biggest change in the design of the X4 can be observed from the side and rear. The new X4 has a more swooping roofline than the current generation, accentuating its coupe cues, while the rear now features slim taillights that wrap around the body. Some could argue that the taillights take design cues from the Mercedes-Benz GLC-Coupe.


As far as powertrain options, the X4 will come with the very same options as the X3. So expect four-cylinder option as standard, a gasoline six-cylinder M Performance option and a plug-in hybrid option as well. And as you can see in these shots, another M Performance Automobile X4 is being scheduled for production as well the X4 M40d. The new high-performance diesel is likely delivering a bit more than 300 horsepower from the new quad-turbo six-cylinder unit.
