BMW 5 Series Diesel Confirmed for North America


BMW has confirmed that it will offer a diesel version of its new 5 Series luxury sedan in North America. What isn't clear is when BMW plans to launch the vehicle, or which diesel engine will be offered.

The decision would seem to be a clear cut one, with BMW currently using its twin-turbo 3.0-liter inline six engine in both the X5 xDrive35d and 335d, where in both cases it makes 265-hp and 425 ft-lbs of torque. It also gets an impressive 36-mpg highway on the 335d. BMW does offer a less-powerful sing-turbo 3.0-liter inline-six in Europe, which is unlikely.

But according to InsideLine, as the 5 Series diesel isn't slated to arrive for at least a few years and so several possibilities emerge. First, BMW could merge the two diesel sixes into one unit, with slightly more power and improved fuel economy than the current twin-turbo unit. There's also speculation of a diesel 4-cylinder. As unlikely as it is, BMW offers the new 5 Series as a 520d model in Europe, with an incredible 47-mpg highway rating.

In addition to the 5 Series, BMW will also launch another diesel model in the U.S. in the coming years, although BMW officials would not comment on what that would be. (We're thinking X1 or X3).

This is great news; bigger cars should always at least be available with a diesel lump!
