Hyundai bringing diesel mill to the U.S. by 2010
The S-engine will be made available initially in the Veracruz, according to Hyundai's CEO, Dong Jim Kim. "We think this is a very good engine. With a little more effort we can meet the U.S. requirements," said Kim during an interview with Automotive News.
The Hyundai-developed V6 utilizes an electronically controlled turbo that increases performance and fuel economy, and at the same time creates 240 HP.
At $27,000, the Veracruz is currently the most expensive model in Hyundai's lineup, so it's safe to assume that the diesel-equipped CUV will command a slight premium.
