BMW has this great little engine called the N57D30OL or N57 for short. If you’ve ever ridden in the 535d sedan or the X5 CUV, you’ve experienced exactly what made the folks at WardsAuto name it one of their 10 Best Engines for 2014.
The “amazingly quiet”engine is a re-designed version of the previous 2009 and 2010 award-winners. Despite slightly less power, the new and improved 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine provides higher fuel efficiency; and 413 lb-ft of sporty handling, which peaks more quickly at 1,500 rpm.
In the past 20 years, BMW has been awarded for making the Ward’s 10 Best Engines list 30 times, more than any other automaker.
This year, the N57 is one of three diesel engines selected for the list, a testament to the increasing value of these engines.
