2013 BMW X3 Gets 2.0L Turbo Engine - Web Exclusive

The new engine replaces the outgoing normally aspirated inline six-cylinder N52 engine and is scheduled for April 2012 production as a 2013 model with delivery to US dealers in May.

MSRP, including $895 destination and handling, are $39395 for the X3 xDrive28i and $44,495 for the X3 xDrive35i. This represents an increase of $1400 and $900 respectively.

In addition, a new Driver Assistance Package option (ZDA) will include Lane Departure Warning; while the optional M Sport Package will add 19” wheels to the X3 xDrive28i. The X3 also has several upgraded standard equipment enhancements such as Auto Start Stop and Driving Dynamics Control with ECO PRO as well as a Power Tailgate.

The state-of-the-art, 2.0-liter engine uses BMW TwinPower Turbo technology, which combines High Precision Direct Fuel Injection, Double-Vanos variable camshaft timing and Valvetronic variable valve timing along with twin-scroll turbocharging.

On the new-generation four-cylinder engine, this technology provides an efficient way to extract more power without going for larger displacement and weight.

As a result, the new BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder’s 1997cc displacement delivers 240hp at 5000rpm while maximum torque of 260 lb-ft is developed at 1250rpm and remains constant up to 4800rpm. This translates to the BMW X3 xDrive28i accelerating from 0-60mph in just 6.5 seconds, on its way to an electronically governed top speed of 130 mph.
