Update: Scheduled production week on those x5 diesels as well as 335d’s are supposed to be December in the 49th week. Pricing is not disclosed as well and won’t be til we get a confirmation on production.
Coming straight from BMW North America:
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 I’m assuming the first diesels will hit the U.S dealerships sometimes in November.
