EA288 2.0 TDI Availability in 2014 North American Models
Is this engine going to be available in the 2014 Model-Year North American vehicles? In particular, the 2014 Beetle.
Is there any information available if it will have urea injection? Any numbers on projected fuel economy? The 2013 Audi and European Golf Mark VII are slated to have this engine.
I was looking at a 2013 Beetle tdi, but it's too much of a crapshoot with windows, intercooler icing, DPF and HPFP problems. A shame, but I'm not willing to risk the potential problems. Hopefully, if a new engine design is avilable, it will be an improvement in reliability and EPA fuel economy, which has continued to spiral downward since the ALH design.
