Report: New BMW 3 Series station wagon confirmed for U.S.

Dubbed the F31, the upcoming BMW 3-Series wagon will be hitting U.S. soil despite previous rumors and BMW’s decision to hold the current E91 from the American market.

The variant’s addition was announced by Paul Ferraiolo at this year’s Detroit Auto Show, but no release date or model year was given. No matter BMW’s decision, the new wagon will be released this spring at the Lepizig Auto Show.

Power will come from one of several options, including a 2.0-liter diesel making 141hp or upgraded to 181hp, a 2.0 liter turbo putting out either 181hp or 241hp, or a 3.0 liter inline six that puts out 315hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.

BMW also has an ActiveHybrid 3 underway expected to feature a turbo 3.0-liter motor with a 54hp electric motor like the ActiveHybrid 5. There is a possibility that a new hybrid powertrain will be coupled to this variant.
