BMW 7 Series Diesel Coming To The USA

BMW 7 Series Diesel Coming To The USA

Not only does it go fast, but it does it while burning comparatively little fuel. BMW is projecting a 25% to 30% fuel economy improvement over the 3.0 liter turbo I6 currently powering the U.S. 7-series, which returns 19 MPG in the city and 29 on the highway. Figuring a 25% improvement, the BMW 740Ld could return as much as 36 MPG on the highway with sports car-like acceleration. Not as impressive as the 45 MPG BMW 328d , but the 2014 BMW 740d is a whole lot more car to move too.
