Volkswagen to Debut New Golf GTD in Geneva

No Golf GTD coming to the US

Traditionally, diesel automobiles aren't that popular in the United States. Volkswagen has been offering a number of diesel models in the US that have proven to be popular for quite a while. Other automakers, including Mazda and others, are bringing new diesel-powered cars to the US.

Volkswagen has unveiled a new diesel-powered Golf GTD ahead of the Geneva motor show that won't be coming to the US. It's too bad, because this diesel-powered car rivals the gasoline powered GTI available in the US. The Golf GTD as a two-liter four-cylinder turbo diesel engine producing 184 hp and 280 pound-feet of torque.

Those numbers are substantially higher than the Golf TDI available in the US already. The Golf GTD promises to put 62 mph in 7.5 seconds and has a top speed of 143 mph when fitted with the six-speed manual transmission. European fuel economy numbers for the vehicle using the European test procedure landed a rating of 56 mpg. More details are sure to be revealed in Geneva.

Filed under: Minivan/Van, Plants/Manufacturing, Work, Mercedes-Benz If you look at the Sprinter and wonder how Mercedes-Benz can possibly compete against locally produced commercial vehicles with a model built in Germany and shipped over the Atlantic, you're not alone. In fact, in order to mitigate the tariffs (but at the cost of added logistical expense), Mercedes builds the vans in Germany, takes them half apart again, ships them as kits and reassembles them in ...
