According to Car and Driver, American VW buyers have a shot at getting the 2014 turbocharged 2.0 liter diesel powered Volkswagen Golf GTD. The new performance model will resemble the gas GTI, but offer a 184 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque diesel. Revs for this performance are incredibly low at not much above an idle — 1750 RPMs. Transmission choices should be what is offered in Europe — the six-speed manual and a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission — but who knows .
