They're due out in 2013 and 2014

BMW is due to release a slew of new turbo diesel engines in the United States throughout 2013 and 2014. 

Among those in the diesel lineup is the F30 3 Series sedan diesel, due out in the first half of 2013; the F31 3 Series touring, due out in the second half of 2013; the F10 5 Series diesel, due out in the third quarter of 2013; the X5d diesel, due out at the end of 2013; the 7 Series diesel, due in the first half of 2014, and the X3d diesel, due in the first half of 2014. 

According to F30Post, a 180 HP 4-cylinder engine may be assigned to 20d or 25d models while a 255 HP 6-cylinder engine may be assigned to 28d, 30d or 35d models. However, no official announcements have been made in that regard. 

The U.S. had some other exciting diesel-related announcements this year as well, such as Porsche's first diesel model for the U.S. (the 2013 Cayenne Diesel), and Mazda said it was bringing a diesel engine to the U.S. by 2014

I've posted this before, but I'll post it again if anyone is curious about the economics of diesel vs gas:
http://www.caranddriver.com/columns/csaba-csere-sh...

Wide adoption of diesel in the US would be pointless (not that I think you're implying that), and let developing countries (where tiny, cheap diesel engines are more important for productivity) and Europe balance out supply/demand to match the production ratio.

The cost benefit is a wash, CO2 (if you care) is worse, and while air pollution has vastly improved, diesel is still not nearly as clean as good gas engines.
