BMW Z4 to Get 4-Cyl Turbo That Will Replace the Base Six-Cyl

Automobile Magazine just posted an interesting tweet this morning. The very short tweet basically confirmed that the BMW Z4 is going to be getting a new engine. The naturally-aspirated 3.0L inline-six that powers the Z4 sDrive30i is going to be replaced by a new turbocharged 4-cylinder.

Forum, ZPost is claiming that the base Z4 will soon be powered by two turbo 4-cylinder variants (sDrive20i and 28i). The 4-cylinder engine is reportedly a 2.0L unit that will put out 174-hp and 235-hp.

None of this should come as a huge surprise, since BMW has already confirmed that 4-cylinder engines are going to be added back to its US lineup.
