Six BMW Diesels Heading to America by 2014

At a recent BMW North American meeting, the German automaker announced that six diesel models will be heading to America within the next two years.

The leaked image of a presentation slide reveals that BMW will bring over a 3-Series sedan diesel in the first half of 2013, and will follow it up with a 3-Series diesel Sport Wagon offering in the second half of the year. The third quarter of 2013 will see a 5-Series diesel offering while the X5d SUV model will make an appearance before year’s end.

Kicking off 2014 will be the German automaker’s flagship sedan 7-Series model in diesel form along with the X3d – both will debut in the first half of 2014. While actual powerplant information was not disclosed, it’s believed that the 2.0-liter diesel powerplant will be the one making an appearance, at least in the 3-Series models.

This would confirm our earlier reports that the 2.0-liter, turbocharged diesel engine with 180 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque would be making its way to America.
