Post BMW to introduce 306hp Turbo Diesel

Diesel is just beginning to make its comeback in the U.S., and BMW is ready to capitalize on that with a more powerful version of its 3.0L twin-turbo six-cylinder diesel engine. The extra grunt will help to move larger cars around more efficiently.

And larger cars are likely to be the first beneficiaries of the new engine. The European 735d is expected to get the engine first, followed by the 535d and 335d. Other 35d models, such as the X5 xDrive 35d could also get the powerplant. The new engine rates a cool 306hp (228kW), and in typical diesel fashion, impresses with 443lb-ft (600Nm) of torque.

Here in the U.S., both of those models are already eligible for an IRS tax credit, thanks to the efficiency of their current diesel engines. With a 4% boost over the engine in the 335d and X5 xDrive 35d right now, the new engine should also qualify for the tax credit.

It’s not yet clear, however, if or when BMW plans to roll the new engine out, and if the U.S. is on the distribution list. Diesels still aren’t a high priority here, so it may take some time if it happens at all.
