BMW Brings Diesel SUV to U.S.

February 04, 2008

MUNICH, GERMANY – BMW plans to introduce two new diesel models in the United States: the X5 xDrive35d SUV and the 335d sedan. Both will be powered by a turbocharged 3.0L inline six-cylinder diesel engine rated at 265 hp and 425 lb-ft of torque, according to new diesels feature variable twin turbos with a torque peak at a low 1,750 rpm, which is excellent for towing. They get about 25 percent better mileage than similar-size gas engines. A urea aftertreatment system, similar to Mercedes’ Bluetec, will allow them to meet strict emission regulations and be sold in all 50 states later in 2008.
