Heartland City Roadtrip Series


Just how far can the BMW 328d xDrive take you?

It can be difficult to truly wrap your head around such a distance, yet you can travel 645 miles on one tank of gas when you drive the BMW 328d xDrive, one of the most practical, versatile and stylish BMW models we sell at Tomkinson BMW. This incredible vehicle returns up to 43 mpg on the highway, yet is still powerful enough to generate 180 horsepower. It represents the pinnacle of performance and efficiency in a luxury vehicle.

To highlight just how far the 328d xDrive can take you, we're introducing the Heartland City Road Trip series, where we'll suggest road trips filled with excitement, luxury and wonder, all available to you on one tank of gas. Using our BMW dealership in Fort Wayne as a starting point, you may be surprised as to how far you can go in the 328d xDrive.

First up on our list is a trip to French Link and West Baden Springs, Indiana, where you can live in the lap of luxury and come home again, all on a single tank.
