FIVE additional diesels for MY2014 in the US!

Bimmerfest posted a copy of the US 2014MY model itinerary that they got from BMW Santa Barbara:

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/att...1&d=1359878557

New models:

F30: 328d, 328d xDrive
F31: 328xd
F10: 535d, 535d xDrive

All start production in July. The F15 X5 xDrive 35d is sticking around, but the 2014 doesn't begin production until December.

This is awesome news, as my wife was asking me just last week what we'll replace her 2007 RX350 (whose extended warranty ends in 11 months) with, and I was bemoaning the lack of powerful RWD/AWD diesels in the current market. Neither of us wants another SUV, so the X5 is out, and I thought that meant I was out of luck. Looks like my answer has come--535d it is!

That 535 in RWD should be about ideal (for a 5er)...looking forward to it!

Not great from HP perspective. The vehicles are sold as 320d in UK. I guess BMW is looking to keep pricing close to VW.

New 3.0 diesel has about same # on HP and torque as our car, but should have much better MPG. (At least European version) will see

Perhaps but that will go into the 5-series as the 535d.

Got this on line!


Inside, BMW is expected to release new trim and leather options. No news on whether the new iDrive Touch Controller will make its way into the facelift or it will be saved for future all-new models.
The best news comes for the US market, where the LCI 535d bi-turbo Diesel (313 hp / 600 NM of torque) will be available from 2014.

Here are is a post with the first spy photos of the F10 LCI:

I hope they don't dumb down the HP/TQ figures for when the car comes to North America.

I hope not. 5 series needs more HP and TQ because is heavier than 3 series.

2.0L 4-cylinder. Sold as the 320d in Europe, but they're trying to equate it as being most similar to the 328i in terms of performance (and presumably, price) for the US market. Rumor is that we'll get the 184bhp, 280lbft twin-scroll (single turbo) version, rather than the 204/295 twin-turbo version.

Hmm very interesting. Thanks for the info! The Euro 320d is 204/295?

If these come in under $33k I'll be seriously looking into trading. Thats a serious torque improvement over my N52.

According to BMW's UK site, the 320d is 184hp for the standard model, 163hp for the efficient dynamics. The 325d is 218hp and 332lbft (it'd be nice if they gave us this one!). The 204hp version is in the 123d, which also claims to be the first 4-banger to have two twin-scroll turbos (the rest of the lineup either has a single twin-scroll or two fixed-output turbos).

All the 4-cylinder diesels, from the 116d/316d to the 325d/525d, appear to be the same 1995cc block with different turbos and tuning to hit the various power levels.
