We are pleased to announce the 2009 335d Sedan & X5 xDrive35d are now available for ordering via the Order Bank. Please be sure to read the bulletin for more details on the 335d and X5xDrive35d. Below are just a few of the highlights:
The 335d boasts a best in class EPA fuel economy of 23/36 MPG (city/hwy). This makes it the most fuel efficient BMW ever sold in the US, and also gives it the highest ever EPA MPG rating of any 6 cylinder vehicle ever offered in the US (gas or diesel). Even with its fuel-saving characteristics the 335d keeps up with the performance leaders by accelerating 0-60 mph in 6 seconds flat, making it faster than the all new Audi A4 3.2 and Mercedes C350.
Like the 335d, the X5 xDrive35d stands out as a sporty, high-torque Sports Activity Vehicle with excellent qualities for long-distance motoring. The BMW X5 xDrive35d achieves an EPA rating of 19/26 MPG (city/hwy) and accelerates from 0-60 in 6.9 seconds, making it the fastest, most efficient Diesel SUV available in the US.
We should be getting more info shortly and we will let you know. At this point Iím assuming the first diesels will hit the U.S dealerships sometimes in November.
Sweet wonder what the premium would be over a 335i. The big thing is, how the gas vs diesel cost would behave. By that I mean what the difference would be between the two, right now even at $0.73 per gallon higher cost of diesel over premium in my area makes it economically feasible (assuming that you get 26mph Highway with 335i)
It is officially official. The diesels will begin production in November and will be delivered to dealers mid December.
The 335d will have a best in class EPA fuel economy of 23/36 MPG making it the most fuel efficient BMW ever sold in the US as well as the highest rated EPA MPG 6 cylinder engine ever in the US. With 0-60 in 6.0 seconds it is quicker to that mark than the all new Audi A4 3.2 and the MB C350.
The X5d (as we like to refer to it as) will have an EPA rating of 19/26 MPG with a 0-60 time of 6.9 seconds; making it the fastest and most efficient SUV in the US. Both models will have a highway range of over 580 miles. Both will qualify for the IRS Alternative Motor Vehicle Tax Credit.
The 335d will have the same option profile as the 335i except for unique sport package wheels on the 335d. The X5 35d will have the same option profile as the X5 30i. Active steering is not available on either model.
We will update you with pricing and ordering guides as they become available
