Tri-turbos are sooo last time. Planning to maintain trend BMW is apparently working on quad-turbo engines, based on Autocar.
The organization already fielded a tri-turbo layout in the X-5 xDrive50d M Operation as well as the M550d, including an electrically powered turbocharger for additional low end boost stress. The quad-turbo layout could follow that with another electrically driven turbo, or BMW could choose to go the traditional route and put in a 2nd biturbo set up to the diesel inline-six.
The quad-turbo inline-six diesel-engine is anticipated to debut in the M750d 7 series sedan in 2016, plus it might likewise create a cameo appearance in the xDrive50d M Operation variations of the X5 as well as the X6 in the near term. Only just how much electricity is the quad-turbo 3.0-liter diesel device anticipated to generate? Autocar claims we could see over 400 400 hp and 590 pounds-feet of torque. That'll be well north of the 255-hp and 413 lb-feet of torque the outgoing 740Ld x-drive version -- the primary diesel 7 series sedan offered in the States -- created when it arrived for the final model year of the F01-era, whose run finished this year. Having said that, it remains to be seen if the quad-turbo-diesel is likely to make it over the pond.
The 2016 BMW 7 series was shown in June and is likely to really go on sale in the US by the end-of 2015. The United States will receive only the extended-wheel base variations of the 740i and the 750i x-drive designs, with the former utilizing a 320-hp, 3.0-litre turbocharged direct six and the latter driven by a 4.4-liter twin turbo V-8 great for 445 hp and 480 lb-ft.
