Is BMW planning to change the engines and the naming on the 2?

Will there be a 220i?

And will the other badge numbers be going up?

Doubt it. Not in the U.S. & Canadian markets.
I think they want to keep the 1 & 2-series brand image as performance oriented and not pollute it with anything below the 228i (just like they never came out with anything below the 128i in N/A).

OTOH, if they did, it's probably be a M220i.

well we have the the 320i. i dont think bmw brings out coupe variants to as low a spec in america. they seem to position coupes slightly higher than sedans .

for example the 2015 4 series you can get LED headlights and leather dash. 3 series you cant even on a 335i

hypothetically if we had the f20 1 serise and f22 2 series i'd bet they'd have a 120i but no 220i

I think it was done with the 3-series to provide an "affordable" option. Now the 228i is that "affordable" option so I wouldn't expect to see a 220i in the US at least...
