    Five New Diesel Models Coming to North America



    For what seems like forever, North America has been left behind when it comes to diesel cars. Sure there are a few options, but nowhere near as many as our friends in Europe. In fact, according to the Automotive Industry Data Newsletter, 52% of all new car sales last year in Western Europe were diesel powered.

    Diesel engines offer unique advantages, with plenty of torque making tiny power plants more useable in small cars, while making modest size engines a functional alternative to much larger gasoline ones in SUVs. Towing, after all, is not something hybrids are known for. Additionally, diesel engines can provide fuel economy closer to that of a hybrid, without any of the worries surrounding new technology; plus, there’s no battery pack compromising passenger or storage space.

    With those advantages, not to mention a push by automakers to meet increasingly strict corporate average fuel economy standards, a slew of diesel models are set to arrive on our shores in the near future. If you’re considering the switch to diesel power, here are a few options you’ll soon be able to consider.

    Mercedes-Benz GLK250 BlueTEC

    The new 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 BlueTEC is a hearty four-cylindered alternative to most V6s found in crossover utility vehicles. Compared to the GLK350, the gas powered version of the German crossover, the GLK250 has 112 less horsepower, but 96 more lb-ft of torque. There’s no official EPA numbers on what the new GLK250 BlueTEC diesel will get, but last year’s European GLK diesel gets around 36 to 38 mpg in mixed driving conditions. European numbers are always much higher than EPA ones, however, so expect something closer to 30 mpg – still a very impressive rating.

    Devin Lindsay, a Senior Analyst from IHS Automotive talked to us about alternative powertrains and their significance in the future. He said “Typically German manufacturers have had a presence when it comes to diesel vehicles.” That said, the GLK250 isn’t unexpected. These next diesels, however, are...

    Finalement ca va faire du bien...même si je ne suis pas certain qu'ils sont offert dans les bons véhicules. On a besoin des diesels dans les focus, elantra, civic, corolla, etc.

    J'espère que cette fois ci jeep vont l'offrir dans des grand cherokee de moyenne gamme et non seulement dans le modèle full load.

    Why? One of the only car makers that have been making Diesels in North America for numerous years has been VW, and their engines run strong up to very high milages.

    What if other car makers offered affordable Diesel engines?

    On a side note, I "hate" how the internet is so accessible now. Just because you read about a new prototype, or you see certain cars online, people get "sick" of seeing/hearing about it. Especially with modded cars.... Just because a fad started in NJ or Cali, and people search the internet 24/7, when it actually comes to Montreal, people say it's "Played out," when no one has ever done it here yet.

    Si l'arrivée de compétiteurs pourrait faire baisser un peu le marché des VW tdi sa n'aurait que du bon, elles sont un peu overpriced selon moi a cause du prix de plus en plus élevé de l'essence les propriétaires de ces voitures essaient de vendre des vraies poubelles pour des prix de fou du fait qu'il n'y en a pas beaucoup

    they should start importing econo boxes instead of big diesel sedans. Most of the problems come from California and their stupid emission laws which pretty much cock block the rest of north america..

    It's probably 40-50 MPG Imperial - Most carmakers in Canada advertise their mileage ratings in Imperial MPGs - this is extremely deceiving as us Canadians tend to think about US MPGs since thats what we see on 40% of our english tv stations. 40-50 MPG (IMP.) is more like 33-41 MPG (US)

    For instance, go to www.dodge.ca and see how they tell you a Dodge Challenger gets 39 MPG highway...on a Challenger.

    What pisses me off is that the only reason they started advertising MPGs in Canada (instead of the much more representative L/100km) is so that we have a means of comparison to what we see and hear from the U.S.

    Why buy a 42 MPG (US) TDI when you can buy a 50 MPG (IMP.) Mazda?
    On the road of life, there are passengers, and there are drivers...then there are those fu*king assholes from Montreal


    I drive a MK5 TDI
