The NYIAS will be upon us this week and there will be two exciting BMW premieres coming to the show:
1) New generation TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine (N20) (tech details) debuts in the first US model - the Z4 sDrive28i
2) New BMW 6 Series Coupe (F13) (info/media)
The new TwinPower Single Turbo 2.0L 4-cylinder N20 motor has already debuted in the European X1 xDrive28i
but, at the 2011 NYIAS, this new motor will be presented with the first BMW model to receive it in the United States - the Z4 sDrive28i. The Z4 sDrive28i will replace the sDrive30i and its N52 inline-6 motor.
The N20 motor features direct injection and valvetronic, good for 245hp / 258 lb-ft torque and 35.7mpg - all better figures than the 3.0L inline-6 motor it will replace.
