The New Diesel 3 Series From BMW
By the end of this summer the BMW 328d, powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel developing 180 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, will be gracing the streets of the U.S. This engine delivers sufficient performance to accelerate to 60 mph in about seven seconds and will come only with the excellent eight-speed ZF automatic transmission. BMW says that fuel economy, which is not yet finalized, should improve by at least 20 percent over that of the gas-fueled 328i automatic, which is rated at 22 mpg in the city and 34 on the highway. That calculates to about 28 and 40 mpg, and BMW is suggesting that the highway number might come in as high as 45. This diesel is plenty quick for everyday driving, and its copious low-end torque makes off-the-line surges effortless. The powertrain is quite responsive as well. BMW says the 328d’s base price will be around $38,600. Check out the video below for an in-depth walk-around of the new 328d.
