Report: Volvo to downsize engines in 2013; ponders diesel for U.S.
According to Autocar, Volvo plans to introduce downsized gas- and diesel-fueled engines across its model range beginning in 2013. The automaker is also eying the addition of clean diesels that displace less than two liters – including a 1.6-liter engine that puts out 113 horsepower – and is even discussing the possibility of importing oil burners here to the States. Volvo's Chief Executive Officer, Stefan Jacoby, tells Autocar that the company is "taking a deep look at whether it will introduce the diesels to the U.S.," though nothing has been decided yet.
What do you think – would bringing over a range of diesels help improve Volvo's fortunes in the States?
