BMW Announces 2.0-liter Turbo For US


BMW has been rumored for some time about possibly introducing a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to the US market. Now, the German automaker has officially confirmed this rumor as the 2.0-liter will arrive stateside sometime later this year. It uses the same twin-scroll turbo technology found in the N55 3.0-liter and is rated at 240 hp at 5,000 rpm. It has 260 lb-ft of peak torque that is delivered at 1,250 rpm.

BMW is claiming that switching to the turbocharged, direct-injection engine will allow for a significant increase in fuel economy over their six-cylinder counterparts. As of now, BMW has yet to announce which models will receive the new four banger. We predict many of the models currently offering the 3.0-liter will be making the switch. More than likely, the 1 and 3 Series will receive the new engine. The X1 is also a likely contender and we also wouldn't be surprised to even see the 528i to eventually come standard with the 2.0 four.
