The new diesel unit will displace 3.0 liters, be fitted with a triple turbocharger system, and have an output of between 350 PS (258 kW / 345 bhp) and 400 PS (294 kW / 395 bhp). It will first be introduced in the X6 xDrive50d model which will debut in March 2012.

The new diesel unit will also make it into the facelifted 2012 7-Series next year, a model expected to debut later this year. The 750d will also be offered with xDrive (all-wheel-drive system) and in an extended wheelbase variant designated the 750Ld.
