2014 BMW 328d headed to New York

BMW has announced plans to introduce the 328d at the New York Auto Show.

Designed to appeal to diesel aficionados, the model is equipped with a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine that develops 180 hp (134 kW) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque. It will enable the sedan to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 7.2 seconds, while returning up to 40+ mpg highway.

The company will also stage the North American debut of the 3-Series Gran Turismo.  It can be equipped with a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine that develops 240 hp (178 kW) and 255 lb-ft (345 Nm) of torque or a 3.0-liter inline-six cylinder engine which cranks out 300 hp (224 kW) and 300 lb-ft (406 Nm) of torque. The 3-Series GT will go on sale in the United States this summer and pricing will be announced closer to launch.

BMW will also showcase the Concept Active Tourer, a 4G LTE mobile hotspot and their two-man bobsled that was created for the USA Bobsled & Skeleton Federation.
