2013 x5 with a new N63Tü engine?

Hi Gents,

After a 2013 650i Gran Coupe is announced with a new N63Tü engine,

Do you think a coming 2013 X5 will have this option?

I have been thinking of getting a 2012 X5, but I am not sure now since it would be great to have the upgraded performance of the new engine.

Please advise.

The 4.4-liter V-8 engine (N63) that powers the current 650i models also receives an upgrade for the new 650i Gran Coupe. The new version of the ***8220;reverse-flow***8221; engine, whose two turbochargers are positioned in the V-area between the cylinder banks, adds BMW***8217;s VALVETRONIC variable valve timing to the list of specifications. As a result, the new version of the engine (N63Tü) develops a maximum 445 hp (332 kW) between 5,500 and 6,000 rpm (a 45 hp increase), and makes peak torque of 480 lb-ft (651 N·m) between 2,000 and 4,500 rpm (a 30 lb-ft increase).

BMW's typical MO is to release a new model with a carryover engine from the previous year. Then the 2nd or 3rd year they will introduce the new engine. Sometimes with the LCI they might buff the engine a bit. But I don't think I've ever seen them introduce a new engine more than 5 years into the lifecycle. By that point there's probably not enough time left to amortize the development and certification costs.

I wonder if the new 2014 X5 (new body style) will get this engine?
