VW New Jetta TDI Pricing Revealed

THE PEOPLE WANT BETTER FUEL ECONOMY WITH NO COMPROMISES

Volkswagen Jetta TDI starting at $21,990 and certified at 38/44 mpg. Will you ever see VW's own rated MPG numbers? If you drive normally, you will probably see that. But compare your current MPG with your current car's rating. Use pen and paper, not the trip computer. We have a 2005.5 MKV TDI and if we try a bit on the freeway, we can get 50+ mpg. All hail the new Common Rail 16 valve diesel engine from VW. It's been called the 16VCRTDI in some circles.

The latest information stated a release of April 2008. However this has been even further delayed. According to Adrian Hallmark in a letter to it's dealer network, the new TDI's will not be released until late Summer of 2008.

Geneva Motor Show 2007: Most economical five-seater in the world as a shuttle

3.9 l/km fuel economy and 102 g/km CO2 as a sign of the times

Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion

Wolfsburg / Geneva, 05 March 2007 - Volkswagen is mobilizing one of the most environmentally-friendly cars in the world to be used as shuttles for the Geneva Motor Show starting tomorrow: the Polo BlueMotion. The successful best-seller – production volume has tripled since being introduced in mid-2006 – gets by on only 3.9 liters of diesel over 100 kilometers. Its CO2 emissions are only 102 g/km. That’s nearly a magical number in the context of current discussions on global warming. For this reason, exactly 102 Polo BlueMotions will be available during the press days to be used as shuttles for journalists and business visitors. And that has symbolic value.

Driving some of the very technologies and fuels being discussed at the Summit provides the reality check that moving forward in meaningful and more environmentally-conscious ways is much more than theory.

New Power Stroke Engine Draws Rave Reviews

The cornerstone engine in the new 2008 Ford F-Series Super Duty lineup is receiving very positive feedback from media members who have tested it. In the cases of Richard Truett and John Stewart, reaction has been nothing short of glowing.

The pair was among journalists throughout North America who had the opportunity to get behind the wheel of the new F-Series Super Duty and its new 6.4-liter Power Stroke® diesel earlier this month in Texas.

Media witnessed firsthand how Ford’s new clean diesel technology improves performance, emissions and NVH at the same time. This formula, combined with a diesel’s typical 25-30 percent better fuel economy than gas engines, could trigger a diesel revolution in North America much like has already happened in Europe.
