BMW Announces Pricing for 2009 335d and X5 xDrive 35d

November 20, 2008

MUNICH, GERMANY – BMW has announced pricing for its all-new 2009 diesel models. Fitted under the hood of the 335d and X5 xDrive35d will be a 3.0L twin-turbo diesel rated at 265 hp and 425 lb.-ft. of torque (BMW’s own flagship 6.0L gasoline V-12 barely tops it with 444 lb.-ft.), according to www.autoblog.com. The torque precludes BMW from fitting a six-speed manual to the engine, so both models will arrive with a six-speed Steptronic automatic.

The sedan will sprint to 60 mph in just over six seconds, with the SAV adding about a second to the time. Base MSRP for the BMW 335d will be $44,725 (the price includes destination fees), while the base MSRP for the X5 xDrive 35d will be $52,025 (including fees). Both vehicles will qualify for the IRS Alternative Motor Vehicle Tax Credit; the exact amount has yet to be determined. For comparison’s sake, the 2009 VW Jetta TDI gets a tax credit of $1,300 while the Mercedes-Benz GL320 BLUETEC gets $1,800.

The first shipment of vehicles will arrive at dealers before the end of the year.
