The 2014 BMW 740d USA
Updated June 8, 2014
BMW brings the big diesel
As a favor to my fellow Americans I wanted to get as many diesels to come into the United States due to their efficiency and low emissions. These reasons plus the fact that you can run the vehicle on just about anything including french fry oil and bio diesel makes it reason enough to at least bring a few for us to choose from. BMW has thrown a few diesel vehicles our direction over the past several years with mixed results but now it seems we will be getting both the 3-series diesel and 7-series. In order for BMW to send us some diesel vehicles I had to call in the big guns of David Hasselhoff in order to have him sing his legendary German pop and as soon as that Baywatch Bohemian started to sing, diesel vehicles were being loaded up. Though the 3 and 7 series were being loaded up I couldn’t get any confirmation on the 5-series. America was going to get the impressive 5-series diesel but due to bureaucratic red tape we will miss out until the next design change in 4-5 years time.
2014 BMW 740d Specs
Diesel engines are great for moving mass with its incredible torque and with the 2014 740d we see that there is 464 ft-lbs of torque that will get this 4300 lb BMW 740d up and moving. What is also impressive is that there is 313 hp making this one powerful luxury sedan. The 2014 BMW 740d will get from 0-60 in 5.4 seconds. With that much torque on tap and an 8-speed automatic transmission allows this vehicle to keep accelerating at an almost unbelievable rate, its like a Bi-turbo Bismarck.
2014 BMW 740d Price
Look for a starting price of around $76,000 for the diesel as it will cost bit more. The efficiency will be impressive for this full-size land yacht as it looks to get around 40 mpg on the highway. What will be interesting to see is how BMW 740d active suspension will make this car handle a ride throughout its different ranges of sport and luxury. The car will be the perfect road trip machine and needs to be your pick if you want the best of everything.
