Earlier today, we broke the news around BMW’s plans to offer the facelifted X6 with a new engine and model designation. In 2012, the X6 xDrive50d will come to market powered by a new, innovative, tri-turbo engine.

The Tri-Turbo diesel engine is said to like an inline six-cylinder with 3.0 liter displacement and three turbochargers. The power of this engine will peak around the 400 horsepower mark, with some reports indicating around 350 hp.

First pre-production test mules of the new BMW 750d were seen around Munich and the flagship 7er is rumored to be introduced after the Frankfurt Auto Show this fall. Our sources indicate that the car will be also be available in the long wheelbase configuration, along with an optional xDrive system.

It remains unknown at the moment whether the new BMW 750d or 750Ld will make their way to the US, but European customers will get to enjoy them starting in Spring 2012.

    why 3.0 when 750D?

    should be called 745d  to pay hommeage to the original turbo 7 the 745i which was a beast in its time.
    Had a chance to drive that monster back in the early 90’s. With a small tuning the car was making over
    300HP (a lot at the time) and the only downside was the dumb 3 speed automatic. Otherwise the car was great ! Self leveling rear suspension and huge torque helped to make the car fun on the curvy road not only on the highway.

    This new 7 should be called 745d since the names does not reflect the engine size anymore.

    why 3.0 Viper asking ? well, the V8 diesel was dropped because it was not making more power then a good 6 cylinder and used a lot more fuel.
    they will call the basic 3.0l d a 730d or 530d and a mid tuned one (bi-turbo) a 540d and 740d and this triple-turbo torque monster a 545d or 550d and 745d or 750d.
    makes sense ? no ? still better then the X6xdrive50d-3.0l-triple-turbo nomenclatura. BMW let some idiot name their car in a past few years so we see these long dumb names.
    Like that awesome roadster – called a connected drive something…  – worst and dumbest name ever. But the car is frikkin’ smoking good !!!

      the basic 3.0 liter diesel was till now the 525d or 325d. But this engine was not sold in 7er.
      From this fall it is going to be replaced by a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder.
      Who knows, maybe 7er will also get this 4 cylinder diesel as S-class already got one (S250 CDI).

      two other info: the biturbo 3.0 liter diesel is 535d and 335d, in the 7er they call it 740d.

      The V8 diesel in the 7er till 2008 was called 745d.

        First of all, 35d is not biturbo, but twin-turbo and the difference is significant, since they are very different system of turbocharging. 

        40d and 35d are slightly different engines. They differ in their respective set up, not just with names. The new 35d is 300ps and 600 Nm engine and hence it doesn’t differ much from the early version of 40d as applied in 740d, which is 306ps and 600Nm. But the last one differ from earlier 35d which produced 286ps and 580Nm and was introduced as a developement of that engine. There is, however, new 40d comming with 640d, which provides slightly better figures that those in recent 35d, namely 630Nm and 312ps against 600Nm and 300ps. Most likely, this version of 40d will be found in face-lifted 740d.

      Why does it so matter to you whether it gonna be called 750d, 745d or with any other badge?!

    Three turbos, three times the chance of failure. BMW should stick to N/A engines.

    • wazon8

      Are you crazy? Have you ever driven N/A diesel engine? I guess that the answer is negative. Otherwise, you wouldn’t even consider this kind of diesel as an option for any modern car. Learn something about cars finally. Perhaps, you should look for an old N/A diesel (when did companies stop producing them? In early 90-ties?) and learn why your suggestion is so stupid.

      Smoking that crack that crack pipe again?

    Tri-turbo, a new headline… Sounds nice, but how about reliability? I prefer though only V12 motor, it’s smoothness is incomparable with any other engines.
