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

Well,

In the US, 3 gallons of gasoline are sold for each 1 gallon of Diesel. (Keep in mind most trucks use Diesel and the US has -alot- more trucking than Europe which has great sea travel lanes, canals, trains, etc), so in the passenger car market its more like 50:1)

In France, .25 gallons of gasoline are sold for each 1 gallon of Diesel

In Germany and the UK the ratio is similiar to .75 gallons of gasoline for each 1 gallon of Diesel.

The Ratio change is very dramatic (75% gasoline in US to less than 40% in Europe). Ideally as another poster has put, the best use of oil would be closer to 50-60% gasoline
