BMW has released MSRP information for its BluePerformance diesel-powered 335d and X5 xDrive35d, slated to be officially unveiled in Los Angeles next week.
BMW has released U.S. pricing for the upcoming BluePerformance diesel-powered models. Scheduled to make their official North American debut next week in Los Angeles. Both the 335d and oddly-named X5 xDrive35d will qualify for the Alternative Motor Vehicle Credit. The IRS will offer tax breaks of up to $900 for 335d buyers and $1,550 for X5 xDrive35d customers.
The first two diesel BMWs in the U.S. won't come cheaply, of course. The 335d has a starting MSRP of $44,725 including destination and delivery. The X5 XDrive35d starts at $52,025.
In addition to an estimated ten mile-per-gallon improvement in fuel economy over the gasoline version, the 335d's 3.0 liter turbodiesel offers clean-burn technology and a supercar-like 428 pound-feet of torque. BMW intends to take full advantage of the diesel's performance potential as well as its penchant for frugality. The X5 xDrive35d shares the same engine.
