BMW says today that it'll offer a diesel-power version of the flagship 7-series sedan in the U.S. this spring. The 2014 BMW 740Ld xDrive sedan will have a starting price of $83,425, including $925 shipping. BMW says it'll make its U.S. auto show debut at the Chicago Auto Show in February. The German automaker says it will accelerate from standstill to 60 mph in 6.1 seconds. The U.S. government mileage ratings aren't yet finalized yet for the 7-series, but BMW suggests it will get 25% to 30% better mpg than "direct gasoline-powered counterparts."
