BMW 3 Series GT and 6 Series GT discontinued in the US for 2020
If any confirmation was still need, then it just came today in a form of a press release from BMW of North America. The low volume, niche gran tourers are coming to an end in the United States. For Model Year 2020, both the 3 Series GT and the 6 Series GT will not be sold to American customers.
The 3 Series GT cancelation was announced a few months ago and the 6 Series GT was expected to get the axe as well. As we reported a few days ago, the versatile 6 Series will not see life as a second generation.
Yet, the 6 GT will still get a refresh in 2020, in the form of a mild lifecyle design update and the model will continue to be sold in other markets. In Europe, the 6 Series Gran Turismo is certainly more popular than in the US, so it will still be available for purchasing.
According to our sources, a couple of years ago, the 6 Series GT was even considered as a future electric car, but a change in strategy, which calls for a reduction in models offered, axed that plan.
In the US, neither of the 3 GT and the 6 GT gained popularity among the SUV-driven customers and with a strong portfolio of crossovers, their cancelation was expected.
