vw logoAn article in Edmonds.com tickled some Volkswagen diesel lovers with new information on the 2008 VW common-rail diesels. As most VW TDI (diesel) fans know, Volkswagen will not be producing a 2007 diesel model for North American. (link) Although they have dropped the Jetta and New Beetle TDIs for 2007, the article is encouraging for 2008 model year since an all-new common-rail diesel is planned. VW intends to use the new 2.0-liter diesel engine which is estimated to produce 140 horsepower and over 200 pound-feet of torque. The change from TDI Pumpe-Duse technology is necessary to meet tougher U.S. regulations. Who knows … it might be a change worth waiting for?
