Diesel only: BMW 328d sedan will hit US showrooms in fall 2013
It's not such a big debut, but anyway, the BMW 328d sedan debuted at the New York Auto Show this week. It features BMW's 2.0-liter TwinPower diesel 4-cylinder engine with 180 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, available from 1,750 rpm in combination with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
The BMW 328d sedan will be available as rear wheel drive and xDrive (all-wheel drive), plus a 328d xDrive Sports Wagon will be available as well. Preliminary fuel economy estimates for the rear wheel drive 328d Sedan are 32 mpg city/45 mpg highway/37 mpg combined, according to BMW.
More details and pricing will be available later this year. The options list will include Luxury, Sport and Modern Lines as well as M Sport.
All three models will hit the showrooms in fall 2013 as 2014 models.
