BMW has debuted a diesel-equipped version of its flagship 7-series sedan in the US. Jack will not be driving one.

The 2014 BMW 740Ld xDrive features a direct-injected, turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder diesel expected to return a 25 to 30 percent increase in fuel efficiency. With its 8-speed automatic transmission, 255 horsepower and a blonde hair over 400 lb-ft of torque. The interior features are typical of BMW, featuring all the latest in optional Bavarian gizmos.

We’re told the base MSRP for this big body Beemer will be $83,425. Expect to see them in showrooms this spring.

    I haven't seen if these are available with the AWD system yet - I was astonished with I drove one of the first 4-wheel'd 7's over Eisenhower to Vail. Not that most of your image-conscious Seibener shoppers are going to spec the Diesel AND the AWD.

  • Allamericanred Interesting that as a car design nut that hates most American Suv designs that I think it is a pretty good design that stands apart but is not odd. The color really impacts how it looks to me. Some just do not work
  • NormSV650 I had a 2014 Vsport back in the day. It have a quiver feeling over some bumps in turns. Currently have a 2018 CT6 it is very solid and a great driver's car for the size.

  • MaintenanceCosts I saw my first IS500 out in the wild today (a dark-grey-on-black example) and it struck me that it was much more AMG-like than this product. (Great-looking and -sounding car.)
