2021 BMW X4: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - June 12, 2020

Model Preview

The BMW X4 debuted in 2015 and underwent a redesign for the 2019 model year. In 2020, the base X4 remains unchanged, but Bimmer introduced the performance-oriented X4 M. When the 2021 BMW X4 arrives, we expect it to be a carryover crossover.

When the new-generation X4 arrived in 2019, it was the typical BMW redesign, as it retained the model’s character but massaged the looks a bit. This updated look included a bolder kidney grille, updated headlights, and a new front bumper with more aggressive air inlets. Around back, this redesign brought in a more tapered backside with thin wraparound taillights, a new bumper, and updated exhaust outlets. We expect this look to remain the same when the 2021 X4 arrives.

Inside, the second-generation BMW X4 showed off even more significant changes. These updates included a completely revamped dash with a thinner look, a dash-top infotainment screen, more angular lines and shapes, and a reworked and modernized center stack. It also gained an all-new steering wheel and center console. We expect this look to remain the same when the 2021 BMW X4 hits showrooms.


Under its hood, we expect the 2021 BMW X4 to continue with the same lineup of powertrain options, starting with the xDrive30i’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that’ll pump out 248 horsepower. Next up will be the M40i’s 382-hp 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder powerplant and rear-biased all-wheel drive. Topping the range will be the X4 M and X4 M Competition with a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-pot that’ll deliver 473 and 503 hp, respectively. All X4 models will boast eight-speed automatic transmissions.

Neither the NHTSA nor the IIHS has tested the current-generation BMW X4 for safety, but we know it comes standard with advanced gear like automatic emergency braking, parking sensors, and telematics. It also has more optional safety gear, including a surround-view camera system, automated parking, and active lane control. We expect this to remain the same in the 2021 X4.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no official on-sale date for the 2021 X4, but based on previous model years, we expect a summer 2020 debut.

Pricing also remains unconfirmed. With no notable changes, we expect it to remain close to the current model’s MSRP range of $52,095 to $81,395 (destination fees included).

This luxury crossover coupe will compete with the Audi Q5, Land Rover Range Rover Evoque, and Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe.
