Article by Christian A., on April 4, 2013

BMW fans in the U.S. will be pleased to know that for the 2014 model year, the automaker will launch a diesel version of the 3-Series wagon. Just last week, BMW and Audi divulged that they were planning to diversify the diesel offerings in the U.S. In fact, a diesel 3-Series wagon has already been confirmed.

This fall, expect the 328d xDrive Sports Wagon to arrive at U.S. dealerships for the 2014 model year lineup. The wagon will be different from the newly presented 328d, which was offered in both RWD and AWD variants as it will only be available with xDrive all-wheel drive variant. It will be powered by the same 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine, which boasts an output of 180 bhp (134 kW) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque.

This engine will be linked to an 8-speed automatic gearbox that will permit the 328d xDrive Sports Wagon to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in slightly longer than 7 seconds. This model has a fuel economy rating of 32 mpg city / 45 mpg highway / 37 mpg combined.

For the U.S. market, the diesel-powered 3-Series models will be available in the same trims as their gasoline counterparts: Luxury, Sport, Modern and with M Sport Package. For those who don't know, Bmw already announced US pricing for the 2014 328i xDrive Sport Wagon!
