The BMW 328d Series Diesel

What’s Exciting for the new 2014 BMW 3 Series?

In the past, BMW has offered a diesel engine in the 3-Series but it was a 6-cylinder. The 2014 328d offers a more efficient 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that  should deliver an estimated 45 mpg highway. The new engine puts out 180 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque.  It will have the same urea injection exhaust treatment as seen on other BMW diesels and will be compliant with  U.S. emissions standards.

At Peterson BMW of Boise  the  328d is offered in both sedan and wagon body styles. Rear-wheel drive will be standard, with all-wheel drive offered as an option. The 328d wagon is available only with all-wheel drive.


The Car and Driver Blog says the following about the 3-series BMW:

With all-wheel drive, the $41,525 328d xDrive sedan drops to 31 mpg city/43 mpg highway (the $43,875 328d Sports Wagon is available only with all-wheel drive and also gets 31 mpg city/43 mpg highway). Both models include standard eight-way power seats, fold-down rear seats and dimming side mirrors, which are optional on the $33,475 320i. The usual trim packages are available, too:

• Sport Line: sport seats, red and high-gloss-black interior trim, 18-inch wheels; $2,500 on sedan, $2,600 on Sports Wagon

• Luxury Line: anthracite wood and gloss-chrome interior trim, Premium package (satellite radio, keyless entry, sunroof), 18-inch wheels; $2100 on sedan, $2300 on Sports Wagon
