2011 BMW 5 Series Diesel Headed for America

2011 BMW 5 Series

Early rumors about a 5-Series diesel making it to US soil have finally been confirmed by a BMW official. According to the new report, the diesel-powered BMW 5-Series will debut in the United States for sure.

As stated by Inside Line, the BMW official has not provided any details about which engines will head for US shores, but it is speculated that the U.S. market will get the 3.0-liter diesel engine found on the 530d. The 265 horsepower and 425 pound-feet of torque seems quite ideal for the new 5 Series and has already been calibrated to pass U.S. 50 state emissions regulations. The engine gives 0-62 mph in 6.3 with a top speed of 155 mph.
