    Chevy does it the American way, create a badass engine and put in a bunch of cars that fit a bunch of segments....

    Then again look what else chevy produces, they are able to meet the average fuel economy numbers required by the EPA with all the cruzes, metros, and other Eco crap they sell. BMW doesn't have that...they seem to me, to be producing a wide range of powerful, fuel efficient engines, hopefully a strategy that will work for them.

    BMW uses how many engines for all their models? In the USA it is really constricted. Still, BMW can build a motor that is amazing and sell it in a car that sells for a decent price. They did that with the E60 M5. That motor was over the top, I want more of that.

    Regardless, I think there is plenty of room for BMW models to improve.

    One thing that is 100% wrong is the engine code. The last two digits signify the displacement of the car - they are saying it's 3.6 liters, but the code says otherwise. In other words, it's probably as you said - misinformation - why? No idea.

    No, it's really just speculation.
