Post BMW X3 xDrive28i to Get N20 Motor this April with Deliveries Beginning in May!


BMW continues to update their model line-up and has announced some changes to the X3 including a switch over to the N20 motor in the xDrive28i starting production in April 2012. The N20 replaced the nominally aspirated inline 6-cylinder engine add produced upwards of 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This is the same motor found in the new 328i which was just put on a dyno and show to produce 240hp & 257tq at the wheels! You can read more on that here:

In addition, the new X3 models will bring in more technology from the rest of the BMW line-up including Driver Assistance Package option (ZDA) (will include Lane Departure Warning) and the optional M Sport Package will come with 19" wheels. New standard equipment includes Auto Start Stop and Driving Dynamics Control with ECO PRO. In addition, the xDrive28i will now come standard with the power tailgate, 18" wheels and chrome tailpipes -- all while keep the prices at $37,995 for the xDrive28i and $43,595 for the xDrive35i.

The N20 motor keeps getting rave reviews on other cars -- is this new addition going to sway anyone to buy or NOT to buy a new X3?
