Star engines in the new 3-series will be a family of upgraded fours, ranging from 136-hp 1.6-liter to 252-hp 2.0-liter gas models and 150-hp 1.6-liter to 245-hp 2.0-liter turbodiesels. The top diesel engine also boasts a hefty 383 lb-ft of torque. The fuel savings over the current four-bangers range from 11 to 17 percent.
Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but the most powerful 3 series engine is only going to be producing 252-hp for 2013 models. Is this article wrong, or am I an idiot? Seems kind of stupid for BMW to do this. No one wants BMW to build a slower 3-series...
