The 2011 BMW 7 Series sedan

BMW 7 Series diesel could be headed to the US

While it has not been made official, rumors indicate that the new BMW 7 Series diesel could be headed for the United States and they could be here as early as the summer of 2014.

While German automakers including Audi, Mercedes Benz and BMW have long sold a wide variety of popular diesel powered passenger vehicles overseas, the stigma against these oil burners in the US have prevented most of these more diesel models from making it to the US but the tide is changing – with the newest entry proof being the planning introduction of a diesel BMW 7 Series coming as soon as next year. Car and Driver initially reported that the diesel BMW 7 Series was on its way and while BMW has refuted that claim, the company has confirmed that there is interest in sending this highly efficient diesel luxury sedan to US dealerships.
