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

Ford is basically cheating the test because the test is known. This is not a new thing or a Ford thing. My 2000 Pontiac Firebird v6 auto short shifts from 2nd straight into 4th at moderate acceleration around 38-40mph. this is because there is a plateau in the city test around this speed, and they get better mileage in 4th. In real life, the car almost always kicks back down into 3rd, making for an annoying dip in acceleration and a loud roar as it kicks down with your foot barely in the throttle (because it lugged in 4th). I personally hate this 1-2-4-3-4 pattern on the way to 50 mph at moderate throttle. See Motortrend's recent head to head of the Prius V vs the C-Max.
