F-10 diesel for the US...when?

Dealers will be able to special order the new F-10 in January, I believe.

Is there any reliable information as to when a diesel version will become available in the US, if it will?

Thanks.

Richard

Currently I have not seen any official indication that a Diesel F10 will be heading to the US. Although I am pretty sure that that information will come out either tomorrow at the unveiling in Munich or at some major Auto Show in the near future.

Also if they do a diesel, I bet it will be the same engine found in the 335d or in the F10's case a 535d. It would be a good fit I think for the 5 Series power wise, as I bet the 335d is a bit overkill power wise.

Overkill??

What are you talking about!?

Obviously you didn't order the stump-pulling option...

"At launch, the new BMW 5 Series Sedan will be available with one V-8 and one inline-6 gasoline engine. The top-of-the-range BMW 550i arrives with BMW's "reverse-flow" V-8 engine featuring twin turbochargers and High Precision direct injection for maximum output of 400*hp. The new inline-6 of the BMW 535i features a single twin-scroll turbocharger, High Precision direct injection, and, for the first time, VALVETRONIC throttle-less intake technology. It delivers a maximum output of 300*hp and 300 lb-ft. The 535i and 550i will be available with a choice of 6-speed manual transmission, BMW's new 8-speed automatic transmission, or new "Sport Automatic" 8-speed."

No diesel for at least the 2011 model year...

Perhaps 2012

From Inside Line: "You should look for evidence of BMW's diesel initiative in the U.S. in mid-2011 when the BMW 535d will arrive with its 262-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-6 common-rail diesel."
