DEARBORN, Michigan The 2015 Volkswagen Golf, Beetle, Beetle Convertible, Passat and Jetta with the automaker's new TDI Clean Diesel engine will arrive at dealerships in the second half of 2014, Volkswagen of America said on Tuesday.

The new engine delivers 150 horsepower, an increase of 10 hp over the current engine.

Volkswagen says the new diesel engine will be more fuel efficient, but specific fuel-economy numbers have not been announced.

The new engine — dubbed EA288 — is the latest version of the automaker's 2.0-liter four-cylinder diesel engine. The turbocharged, direct-injection engine shares only the bore spacing with the previous diesel engine, according to VW.

Pricing has not been announced on any of the 2015 Volkswagen models to feature the new engine.

The German automaker has been a leader in sales of diesel vehicles. Volkswagen and Audi sold 105,899 TDI Clean Diesel vehicles in 2013.

Edmunds says: Car shoppers who want the latest diesel-engine technology from VW may want to wait a few months until the debut of the more fuel-efficient EA288 engine.
