A handful of BMW 3 and 4 series models will receive new designations to go with their new engines when they arrive in U.S. showrooms beginning in 2016.
An ongoing forum post on Bimmerpost reports the following for the F3x models:
- 4-cylinder B58 will have the 330i/430i designation, instead of 328i/428i
- 6-cylinder B58 will use the 340i/440i designation, instead of 335i/435i
- F30 PHEV will be dubbed the 330e, instead of 328e
The list continues to update, and has info only on U.S.-bound models.
