BMW has announced plans to offer the 740Ld xDrive in the United States.


Set to debut at the Chicago Auto Show, the model has a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder diesel engine that produces 255 bhp (190 kW) and 413 lb-ft (559 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and an all-wheel drive system which enables the sedan to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.1 seconds. Official specifications are still pending but BMW says "other models equipped with this engine have seen a 25 – 30 percent improvement in fuel efficiency over their direct gasoline-powered counterparts."

The 740Ld xDrive will go on sale this spring and pricing starts at $83,425 (including a $925 destination and handling).
