Hi all, apologies if my brain cells aren't crisp today, but can someone tell me what is the current expected timeline for an X5 major redesign?
(I currently have a 2012 -!- one that looks/feels/acts brand new and will look to trade it one year from now).
Thanks

My bet would be mid-2022.

The current G05 X5 launched in Nov 2018 for MY 2019.

2022 may bring an LCI Refreash, but it wont be any major redesign.

Right sorry, I was talking about the LCI.

EOP of the current G05 X5 is clearly marked as 7/26 in the top post, which implies that the successor (if any, but it's hard to fathom that BMW would drop their X5 cash cow) will launch at that time as well.

i4 update, unfortunately pretty sparse, which is the new normal.

In fact, some engines may soon be phased out. For example, there are signs that the N63 wonít be around long enough to be hybridized. Instead, the upcoming electrified S63 (which will get a name change to S68) could be the only V8 for the next generation, while everything below might be a B58 (or perhaps S58) hybrid. This is not yet confirmed, however.
With the rumours of the 1.5t being phased out in the near future, there's nothing to replace the entry level engines in the Mini and Euro BMWs?

I had a F56 Mini Cooper with the 1.5t. It was a really fun engine, albeit not very good. I always liked to call it a half sized M3 cause logically it's a S55 chopped in half (I know it doesn't work that way)

I'm not surprised there will be no "pedestrian" V8 since those would be replaced by a hybrid 6.
The continual downsizing continues, and I actually prefer hybridizing than turboing.

Very strange that the G26 430i xDrive will not be among the models offered at launch, instead being delayed into 2022. I would have expected the B48 + AWD to be the most popular configuration in the US.

Eeeenteresting...I wonder how far along BMW would be if they poured resources into this while they were ahead of the game with the i3 years ago. What could have been...
