BMW 740Ld xDrive (Glossary Inside) Coming to America

Diesel / Comments

Keeping its naming scheme nice and simple, BMW will unveil a long-wheelbase, diesel all-wheel drive 7 Series in Chicago

BMW's latest model of its flagship 7 Series is headed to the Chicago Auto Show, where it'll make its American market debut. With a 3.0-liter TwinPower turbo diesel that produces 255 horsepower and 413 lb-ft of torque, this long wheelbase 7 will also mate BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive system with an 8 speed automatic. Given its 205.3 inch length and estimated 4500 lb. weigh-in, the limo with the catchy name will offer a pretty swift 0-60 time of 6.1 seconds.

While diesels are highly popular in Europe, even on high-end models, this will be the first diesel powered BMW 7 series to be offered in the US market. Following its appearance in Chicago, the xDrive 740Ld should roll out in dealerships later this spring. Thrifty drivers (or chauffeur-employers) will be happy to know that fuel efficiency is expected to be 25-30 percent better than on gasoline-powered models. Starting at $82,500, the little 'd' in the name adds $1500 to the regular 740Li xDrive.
