BMW 320d among many diesel cars coming soon

Supporters of BMW's diesel 3 series rejoice, as the death of the BMW 335d did not signal the end. The BMW 320d, one of many diesel automobiles planned for the U.S., is going to be showing up on these shores soon.

The BMW 320d is awesome!

Right now, you cannot get a 3 series that utilizes diesel in the United States, though there are a ton of options if you would like a 3 series that uses oil. Since not a number of people purchase diesel in the U.S., BMW decided to get rid of the diesel variant of the 3 series, the 335d, according to Automobile magazine.

However, there is some good news. BMW has given the green light to a brand new diesel model for the American market. They are going to start shipping the BMW 320d, though the business hasn't said when. BMW has, according to AutoGuide, confirmed 2-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel for the United States, likely the 180-horsepower unit the 320d gets in Europe. It also is not known whether it's going to be arriving as a sedan or station wagon.

BMW promises more diesel

BMW is also, according to Automobile, going to sell cars with its 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder diesel as well, so more is coming from them. One of the company's other brand names, Mini, according to AutoBlog, is currently mulling whether or not to start selling diesel models in the U.S.

Chrysler just submitted a patent on the name “EcoDiesel,” which is most likely for an engine to go in the Jeep grand Cherokee and the Ram 1500 pickup, according to MotorTrend. It is the name for a 3.0-liter six-cylinder diesel engine, more than likely. That means BMW is not alone.

According to MSN, other diesels in the pipeline consist of the 2013 Chevrolet Cruze, the 2013 Porsche Cayenne and a new Passat TDI by Volkswagen, the business that sells more diesel cars than any in the United States. Some more upcoming oil-burners, according to AutoGuide, contain the 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 BlueTec, a diesel Cadillac ATS eventually and sometime in the near future, a range of Mazda SkyActiv diesels also.

Pluses and minuses

Purchasing a diesel is not very inexpensive though. In fact, most car companies charge extra for a diesel automobile. A consumer has to figure out if there is enough fuel savings to make up for the difference in costs. The base Jetta is $6,130 less than the TDI version, and the Volkswagen Jetta TDI costs an extra $4,050 to get. The TDI is the SE trim with a different motor.
