Now, if you've been following the all-new BMW 3-Series you would know by now that BMW plans to offer it with a new motor.

To be more specific, a four-cylinder.

Aside from the new Z4, which also uses the same engine, this is the first time BMW has offered a four-cylinder powerplant to the U-S-of-A since the 318Ti.

According to 001, who has been relaying notes to me, the four-banger engine is simply outstanding. He furthers on by saying that combined with the eight-speed transmissin, Eco mode and start/stop technology, the vehicle gets "virtually identical mileage to the 335d."

Considering 001 owns a "d," that's a bold claim.

With that said, could the all-new motor have the same impact as the 335s when it first debuted?
