Diesel Powered BMW 328d To Debut At New York Auto Show


2013_bmw_328BMW has pledged to bring a new wave of modern diesel engines to American shores, and true to their word the BMW 328d will make its U.S. debut at the New York Auto Show as the city of New York goes green. With 180 horsepower and fuel economy that could exceed 40 mpg on the highway, this German diesel sedan could lure away some hybrid buyers.

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.

  • Lure away hybrid drivers? not the diesel hybrid drivers, booger! Even
    nano-carbon, super-capacitor storage, D.C. pulse enhanced hybrid
    diesel/electrics? The fully super-capacitor electric systems? with pulsed, inductive power returns? Transmission loss-free, electric D.C. pulsed motor/diesel generator systems? an interim to the Chinese Threos? A fully electric D.C. Pulsed Super Capacitor system coming from Chinese intelligentsia? not American “know-how”? Not in the 20th Century folks! America rules the 20th Century! What’s that you say? this is the 21st Century already? No way man! Can’t happen to us! What you smokin’ “Dude”?
