The German based automaker BMW has recently announced that the 7-Series Diesel won’t arrive on the United States auto market.
After a rumor has appeared just a day before writing this article, which said that the BMW 7-Series Diesel is getting ready to be launched in the United States with the same engine used on the X5 xDrive35d, the company came forward and simply shattered it, but announcing that the luxurious model won’t reach the over-seas dealerships with a diesel engine.
“BMW is currently not planning any diesel powered 7 Series model for the US market. The updated BMW 7 Series models that arrive this fall will be powered by a 3.0 liter TwinPower Turboinline six-cylinder engine, a 3.0 liter TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder engine with electric motor in the ActiveHybrid 7, updated 4.4 liter TwinPower Turbo V8 engine and a 6.0 liter TwinPower Turbo V12 engine”, said the BMW corporate communications manager, Thomas J. Plucinsky.
Initial rumors were saying that the facelifted BMW 7-Series will arrive in the United States with a diesel version too, which should have used the same engine as the BMW X5 xDrive35d, the 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder unit which, in standard, is developing 265 HP and 425 lb-ft of torque, and in the high-level version the unit is generating 308 HP and 465 lb-ft.
