Watch that one move out in the lighter Q5 body!
The 2014 X3 will offer a diesel model in the U.S. I have read multiple articles on it. Here are a few:

Right. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak here. We get the announcements but when will the cars get here? Not for at least 18 months or longer in the case of the X3. I will be glad they finally come, but by then will probably be driving something else that is here now or will be within a few months. Sad, when they are actually building the things right now in s'burg.
