BMW’s 7 series has seen a lot of success in the US market over the last few years. This year the luxury car company hopes to expand their market even further with the introduction of the first 7 series diesel model to the US market. Unveiled at the Chicago Auto Show in February, the new 2014 BMW Ld xDrive certainly did not disappoint auto enthusiasts across the country. This deluxe model seems to have everything the luxury car driver would want, including a comfortable ride, stylish look, and a great fuel efficiency that can only be found in a diesel model car.
The 2014 BMW Ld xDrive model comes with a 3.0 liter, inline six-cylinder twin-turbo engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This provides a powerful 225 horsepower with a 413 lb/ft of torque that peaks from 1,500 to 3,000 rpms. It can efficiently go from zero to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds, which is slightly lower than its gas-powered counterpart, but still very impressive. Fuel efficiency statistics have not been released yet, but BMW manufactures say it will provide about a 25 to 30 percent improvement over the gas-only versions. This could easily put the numbers at around 23 mpg in the city and 35 mpg on the highway.
When it comes to luxury sedans, the new Ld xDrive model certainly looks the part. Its great design, stylish LED front headlights and taillights, and its nice-looking split front grille, along with bumpers and side mirrors designed to match the color of the car all work to provide an impressive look, even for luxury models. The car also includes some of the best BMW features, including a deluxe iDrive entertainment system complete with a touchpad and a surround sound system, which is compatible with Sirius satellite radio.
The new models also come with numerous features you would hope to find in a luxury model, including extremely comfortable and spacious seats with a memory system for the driver and front passenger, as well as, for the steering wheel and side mirrors. In addition, the car includes a keyless entry system with a hand-free trunk opening control, a four-zone climate control system, a rear entertainment system, a dynamic cruise control system and hill monitoring system.
This new model BMW may be the perfect solution to having a great-looking luxury sedan with the great full efficiency you have always wanted in a luxury model. In addition, when it comes to safety features, BMW has not disappointed its customers. The new 2014 BMW 740 Ld xDrive includes the special BMW night visions capabilities, blind spot detection, rain sensor windshield wipers, multiple airbags for the driver and front passenger, a special Head Protection System, anti-theft features, and the BMW’s Active Protection System that automatically prepares the car for a potential impact.
The new 2014 BMW 740 Ld xDrive is expected to be released in the Spring of 2014 with a suggested market price of $83,425. If you have always wanted a great luxury sedan that has a powerful engine with a smooth drive that is also more fuel efficient, this car is the perfect solution of you.
