2009 BMW 335d – Clean diesel goodness

February 3rd, 2009 Posted in 3 series, 335d, BMW, Diesel, Engine

Ours is a culture that emphasizes speed and efficiency, and one of the ways in which we can see this manifest is the demand for faster cars. And with the modern models of advanced diesel cars continuing to make their way into the market, consumers are now looking for cleaner diesel engines that can deliver peak torque at a low rpm. This is where BMW’s 2009 335d comes in.

The 2009 335d is one of the latest examples of diesel cars that show just how useful low-end torque can be. The 335d is the company’s first diesel model to hit North American shores in more than two decades, and can produce full torque at just 1,750 rpm. The 2009 335d also has 130 more lbs-ft (the 335d has 425 lbs-feet) compared to the BMW M3. And with a 265 horsepower, the 335d can go from 0 to 60 mph in just six seconds.

The 335d also has a 3.0-liter six-cylinder that is coupled with twin turbochargers to boost the aluminum block. The twin turbochargers work such that the smaller turbo provides boost at low rpm and then the larger turbo increases levels of pressure as revs are built. What then results is a power rush from idle to 4,200 rpm horsepower peak. The BMW 335d gives buyers the option of getting a six-speed automatic with paddle shifters mounted on the steering wheel if they buy the Sport Package.

The BluePerformance diesel used in the 335d is 50-state emissions legal and delivers 33 mpg on the highway. The 335d also has lower CO2 emissions compared to other gas engines of the same size.
