US: VW to install new TDI diesel engine for 2015

Volkswagen Ag, the company that sells the largest number of diesel cars in the U.S., on Wednesday said it will build a new TDI (turbo diesel injection) engine for the U.S. that will hit the market in 2015.

The new inline configuration, iron block and aluminum head diesel unit – codenamed EA288 TDI Clean Diesel has the same displacement and cylinder count as the outgoing model – which according to Autonews of Europe went into about 22 percent of all Volkswagen vehicles sold in the U.S. last year.

The 2-liter diesel unit will produce 150 hp – up 10 hp more compared to the actual version; and 236 pound-feet of torque.

“The Volkswagen Group is a leader in clean diesel technology,” said Schmidt.

“With the introduction of the new EA288 engine, we are excited that our family of TDI Clean Diesel vehicles is continuing to improve and will be even more clean, fuel efficient and powerful. “

Vw says this powerplant will share only the bore spacing with the previous diesel engine – and a number of changes have been made to reduce fuel consumption and help reduce emissions such as: a new exhaust gas recirculation system, a new EGR system, piston rings have now less pre-tension and the oil pump is a two-stage device with volumetric flow regulation.

According to the German carmaker, the new Beetle, Golf, Jeta and Passat will get this new powerplant – which are scheduled to go on sale in the United States somewhere in September.

Last year sales of VW vehicles fell 8 percent to 407,704 vehicles.
