Good news for all torque-lovers! The diesel version of the popular 3 Series Sedan will be released by the Bavarian automaker in the United States in November, as scheduled. BMW decided to label it as a 2009 model, as it will appear so late in the year. These two BMW diesel models will have a 3.0-liter twin turbo oil-burner of 265hp and 425 lb-ft of torque. When paired with the six speed automatic, the expected fuel mileage is of 23 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.
The late release had made some people believe that the BMW 335d would not show up until the next year, but the BMW spokesman Tom Plucinsky soon responded to the rumors, stating to Kicking Tires that the 335d, as well as the X5 35d will be released at a certain time in November, with production beginning in September.
