Sure, if you know someone living on a military base in Europe.
Military personnel overseas get special attention when they buy Euro spec vehicles and have them converted to US "Federal" standards for import.
Otherwise, it would be quite costly to convert the entire vehicle to North America standards (bumpers, lights, exhaust system, ECU, etc.), pay import duty and taxes, delivery, pass federal emissions, and so on.
BMW will have diesel X5 in a few years, to compete with upcoming Mercedes diesels.

I agree with your commment... I drove a new 330d recently, and it had alot of high torque!
