From my understanding, it is a completely redesigned engine.

Thanks guys. I guess I dodged a bullet there
Not really. Many consider the EA288 engine in the '15s to be better than the CJAA in the '10-14 cars, correcting several issues that engine has, including more common (although still not that common) HPFP failure and intercooler icing. And using DEF gives VW more flexibility in tuning the car for best performance and economy.
