The discovery potential and diagnostic abilities of proposed future colliders for new heavy neutral (Z') and charged (W') gauge bosons are summarized. typical bounds achievable on Mz',w' at the TEVATRON, DI-TEVATRON, LHC, 500 GeV NLC, and 1 TeV NLC are ~1 TeV, ~2 TeV, ~4 TeV, 1-3 TeV, and 2-6 TeV, respectively. For Mz', ~1 TeV the LHC will have the capability to determine the magnitude of normalized Z' quark and lepton couplings to around 10-20%, while the NLC would allow for determination of the couplings (including their signs) with a factor of 2 larger error-bars, provided heavy flavor tagging and longitudinal polarization of the electron beam is available.
