Default BMW bringing more diesels

The two engines BMW will be bringing to our shores are a new 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel four and 3.0-liter turbo-diesel six. Our best guess is that the 3 Series, 5 Series and X3 will receive the smaller mill, estimated to produce roughly 255 horsepower and an unknown amount of torque. The 7 Series and X5 will likely rely on the larger 3.0-liter six for torque-tastic grunt. Expect eight-speed automatic transmissions to be on hand across the board, as well.

If the X3 keeps the 8 speed auto and picks up the turbo 4 diesel I will have two of them.

Default BMW To Launch Six Diesel Models In Next Two Years

According to an article on GreenCarReports.com; First to hit the U.S. will be a diesel 3-Series sedan, arriving in the first half of 2013. A diesel 3-Series Sport Wagon will follow in the second half, and a 5-Series diesel in the third quarter of 2013.

Those will be joined by an X5 diesel in late 2013, and a 7-Series and X3 diesel in the first half of 2014.

255hp from 2l is suspect and I hope they do bring back the wagon.

The 2.0 is in Europe in the 3 and 5 series and makes 180/280, IIRC. Although I'd love to see both engines here in cars (not SUVs) I'm not holding my breath. Seems we've heard this before.

The info I've seen says the 3 sedan gets the 4, the 3 wagon and 5 sedan gets the 6 cyl. No way the 4 cyl will produce 255 hp. That is the output of the single turbo 6 cyl 3 liter.
I'm geeked about this

Default BMW Is About To Unleash Oodles Of Diesel Goodness On America

From Jalopnik:

Quote:
BMW North America recently had a meeting to lay out some products that are earmarked for the United States through 2014, and thanks to a photo taken by a member of VW Vortex, it looks like a plethora of oil burners will be available for you fine folks.

The first two cars are 3-series based, and it includes a 3-series wagon. A 5-series diesel and X5d will follow soon after.
Now if only I had the money for a new bmw!

They really need to bring a M1D with the m550D motor and smack the crap out of the diesel stereoype in the US. Offer it with a proper trans and I'd do bad things for that gem of engineering.

A 2.0L really is the right engine for the F30, either sedan or touring.

I had been hoping for the 535d to come along (although I'd love a 635d) so it looks like it may happen finally. If it does, then my 335d (has about 110,000km now...still rock solid) will take over from my trusty MkIV Jetta.

An 23d X3 would be a great vehicle too...VW should have made a 2.0TDI Tiggy.

Good to see BMW getting a larger diesel offering like M-B (and to a lesser degree VW...TDI CC would have rocked).

Cheers
D.

255 horsepower for the four? Autoblog got that wrong, that would be the number for the single-turbo 3.0L six. The four makes around 180hp.
