BMW Set to Introduce Diesel Variant at New York Auto Show

posted in: BMW 3 Series | 0

BMW is creating a lot of buzz for the New York Auto Show; one of the highlights will be the debut of the 2014 328d.  This will be the first diesel variant in the 3 Series line up and in its class.  Diesel cars are growing even more popular in the U.S. due to the rising cost of fuel and the new eco-friendly diesel engine offerings.

This particular diesel engine us a 2.0 liter four cylinder turbodiesel.  It delivers 180 horsepower and impressive 280 pound feet of torque.  It can go from zero to 60 in about 7.2 seconds.  Official EPA estimates have not been announced yet, but BMW has suggested the 2014 328d will get more than 40 mpg highway!

The 328d will make its world debut at the New York International Auto Show alongside the new 3 Series Gran Turismo and the plug in hybrid, Concept Active Tourer.  The show will open on March 29th and run through April 7th.  Check out their website for show and ticket information.

Our staff, here at Perillo BMW, can’t wait for the huge debut!
