New 2022 BMW X3 G01 LCI
2022 BMW X3 G01 LCI – The BMW X3 G01 is next in line for a facelift, three and a half years after its debut, as is the high-performance X3 M variant.
Now that BMW has pulled out the combustion engine from the X3 to make the iX3 purely electric, its next business order is to update its conventionally powered luxury crossover.

The third-generation model (G01) has been around for about three years, so it seems just about the right Bayern has now been seen testing a facelifted version.
Just like the BMW X4 M LCI (Life Cycle Impulse) prototype seen last month, the 2022 X3 M has front and rear edges that may look completely at all.
2022 BMW X3 G01 LCI Redesign
The LCI X3 seems to be better because mid-cycle revisions are usually limited to new lights and bumpers. That’s what these test vehicles have as if the fascias are mostly covered, headlights and updated taillights peeking through the makeup.
That’s where the main changes occur, with the front end getting a slightly larger renal grid placed closer together; don’t worry, they won’t be as big as the one in the latest BMW M3 and M4, which share their powertrain with the X3 M and X4 M.
BMW M also makes some changes to the bumper, which gets a newly designed air intake up front and the possibility of a larger diffuser between the quad exhaust at the back.
As you can see, the headlights show they are on some changes as well. Look forward to new and sleeker designs along with the new DRL signature, in a way similar to what we’ve seen in the raised Series 5. As for the taillights, it looks like they’ll get new graphics as well and maybe a revised form.
2022 BMW X3 Engine
Given that the X3 M was launched just a year ago, the 3.0-liter straight-six twin-turbo powertrain should carry more than unchanged, at least in the guise of standard.
The engine delivers 473 HP (352 kW/ 479 PS) of torque and 442 lb-ft (598 Nm) of torque, allowing the current model to run from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.1 seconds, before reaching a limited top speed of up to 174 mph (280 km/h) in 4.1 seconds, before reaching a limited top speed of up to 174 mph (280 km/h) in 4.1 seconds, before reaching a limited top speed of up to 174 mph (280 km/h).
As for the X3 M Competition, it can arrive with a performance boost because the 2022 M3 and M4 Competitions are rated at 503 HP (375 kW/510 PS) and 479 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque.
The X3 M competition also has 503 HP (375 kW/ 510 PS) of torque, but only 442 lb-ft (598 Nm) of torque, so there is some room for improvement there. As before, both X3 M models will feature an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission and a rear-biased AWD M XDrive system.
2022 BMW X3 G01 LCI Release Date
The facelift BMW X3 G01 LCI is expected to debut in the second half of 2021 for the 2022 model year.
