New BMW 3-Series to Get Diesel Option, Eventually

BMW's new 3-Series is poised to hit showroom floors shortly, and sometime in the near future a diesel model will join the 328 and 335 sedans in the North American market. There's no exact timeframe or official release from BMW in regards to a diesel model, but a company insider has confirmed that one will be coming just when is unknown.

It's not a huge surprise that BMW wasn't immediate on announcing a diesel option, given its new ActiveHybrid 3 that it surely wants to push to the public. The outgoing 3-Series' 335d packed a 3.0L diesel inline-six with 265-hp and 425 lb-ft of torque. The assumption though is that the 3.0L won't be finding its way into the new model, but perhaps a 2.0L four-cylinder diesel with 181-hp and 280 lb-ft of torque from the European 320d.
