BMW has done it all to give the 7-Series the best options and performances, after more than 40 years of its existence on the market. But there is just one particular thing that the 7-Series didn’t receive, but will, in the next future.
I am referring to a special diesel edition that the luxury car manufacturer is preparing for the US market. It concerns the new yet unveiled 740LdxDrive, to mark its diesel existence at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show, before heading toe sales on spring.
The 2014 BMW 7-Series will be offered on long-wheelbase with standard all-wheel drive, being powered by a 3.0-liter inline six engine, developing 255 horsepower and a roughly 413 pound-feet of torque.
The diesel model is said to a have a diesel technology for a better fuel economy, stating an improved 25 to 30 percent over its gas version. That means that the 740LdxDrive would get 24.7 miles per gallon in the city and 36.6 miles per gallon on the highway.
In contrast with the gas model, the diesel 7-Series will come with a higher price, meaning that the Americans will pay $82,500, without the destination fee of around $925.
