BMW Announces the BMW X3 xDrive35d (bring this to the US BMW)



Starting in autumn 2011, the BMW X3 model range will be expanded with two new engines, one petrol and one diesel. European customers will then have a choice between three petrol and three diesel engines.

The new BMW X3 xDrive20i will become the entry model of the X3 lineup and features a newly-developed 2.0-litre four cylinder engine with TwinPower Turbo technology.

The new BMW X3 xDrive35d, with its 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel, joins the existing two diesel models, the X3 xDrive20d and xDrive30d. At the top of the X3 model range, it will offer an output of 313 hp (230 kW) and 465 pound-feet (630 Nm). This makes the new X3 xDrive35d the most powerful diesel variant in BMWs SAV model range.

The BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and the latest common-rail direct fuel injection give the new X3 not only offer impressive pulling power but also best-in-class fuel economy. When driving with low engine speeds, only the smaller turbocharger is active and an electronic controller automatically engages the larger turbo-charger during heavier throttle activities.

The X3 xDrive35d comes with the ZF eight-speed automatic transmission (no other transmission is offered). We first saw the new transmission in the X3 xDrive20d which we reported on in December 2010 (2011 2011 BMW X3 Review and Road Test The Road to Berchtesgaden) and in February in the X3 xDrive35i (BMW X3 xDrive35i Review and Road Test). The new X3 comes with numerous standard EfficientDynamics options such as the Auto start-stop function and the brake energy regeneration. Options include the Dynamic-Damper Control, a Head-Up Display and in-car internet access (the latter only available in specific markets).

How about the 4-banger -- that appears to also be a '12 as well, replacing the entry X3. Deja Vu all over again, back to the four potter like the old 2002 series. Still see a few of those around -- not much rust out here so things last -- lots of viz and impressive interior room for such a small package.

Oh please, BMW, bring this bad boy here!!!
300+ HP diesel in X3 body = next vehicle.

The 5000 lb X5 / ML / Touareg/ Q7 are just too heavy to be nimble.
