Chicago Auto Show Preview: 2014 BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan joins US lineup

Article by Christian A., on January 24, 2014

The BMW 7-Series range will receive a new model that will benefit from company’s Advanced Diesel technology in the US in the form of the 2014 BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan. Priced at 83,425, including $925 destination and handling, the 2014 BMW 740Ld xDrive Sedan will be officially introduced in February, at the Chicago Auto Show and will hit the US showrooms in Spring 2014.

As expected, the sedan is based on the long-wheelbase 7-Series body and comes with the well-known xDrive all-wheel-drive system. Under the hood, we find the popular 3.0-liter inline-6 BMW Advanced Diesel engine fitted with TwinPower Turbo technology that generates 255 hp 4,000 rpm and 413 lb-ft of torque from 1,500 – 3,000 rpm.

Bolted to an 8-speed automatic transmission, the sedan is able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 6.1 seconds. Compared wits its gasoline-powered counterparts, the 740Ld xDrive Sedan promises to have a 25 – 30 percent improvement in fuel efficiency thanks to standard features such as Driving Dynamics Control with Eco Pro mode and Auto Start/Stop that reduce fuel consumption in real-world driving situations.

The exhaust gas treatment system is specifically designed to comply with ULEV II emission standards. It uses a combination of a Nox Storage Catalyst, Diesel Particulate Filter, and the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system with no fewer than nine specific sensors working in concert to keep exhaust emissions to an absolute minimum.
