BMW preparing six diesel models for North America - report

 BMW preparing six diesel models for North America - report
BMW North American diesel lineup leaked slide 05.11.2012 / VWvortex

Could power everything from sedans to crossovers

We've already heard reports that BMW was preparing to offer a 7-Series diesel in the United States, but an alleged leaked slide has revealed that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Reportedly taken during a BMW North America meeting, the slide reveals the company is gearing up to launch six diesel models. The 3-Series sedan will get a diesel in early 2013 and it will be joined by a diesel-powered 3-Series Touring later that year. 2013 will also usher in a 5-Series diesel and an X5d. The latter model is interesting because the company already offers an X5 35d, so it could imply the next-generation model will go on sale at end of next year.

As for the 7-Series diesel, it is slated for early 2014. It will apparently be joined by an X3 diesel which will go on sale at the same time.

It is amazing how much power BMW can develop from these engines and they are clean at the same time

Have they truly solved the fuel rail and injector problems that have occurred with the d35 engines previously sold in North America?
