Diesel Powered BMW 328d To Debut At New York Auto Show
The fact that this diesel engine comes packed into a luxury sports sedan like the BMW 328 only increases its appeal. With an impressive 280 ft-lbs of torque on tap, stoplights will prove plenty of fun in this BMW oil-burner, though 0-60 mph is a fairly-average 7.2 seconds. We predict that the TwinPower turbodiesel four-cylinder will prove popular with the tuner crowd though.
BMW does not explicitly state when the 328d will go on sale, but it will most likely hit dealerships either late this year or early next year. With BMW doubling down on diesel engines while also toying with hybrid technology, the future of fuel efficiency looks good for the Ultimate Driving Machine.
