No sooner do we question why BMW is keeping us in the USA in the dark and they go release the requested information! We now know the reason for the delay; there is no mention of the DCT in this piece BUT there is very little mention of the coupe (E92) or convertible (E93) so there is still some hope. There is also no mention of the internet via Connected Drive or the newer Efficient Dynamics technologies.

The only change engine wise is the Advanced Diesel in the 335d. There will not be a 335 wagon or a direct injection 330.

The iDrive will be updated as we have known for sometime and the remainder of the changes in appearanceand packaging (including a heated steering wheel) will occur.

All in all it is very similar to the UK just we are not worthy of the other engines, DCT (yet?) or Connected Drive.

It appears that the “XI ” badging may be history:

BMW’sacclaimed xDrive all-wheel drive is featured in the newly named 328i and 335i xDrive Sedans and 328i xDrive Sports Wagon

Those are going to be some LONG badges!
