Audi's current diesel offerings stand at two with the A3 hatchback and Q7 crossover. That will be increasing to six with the A8 TDI coming in the spring and the Q5, A6, and A7 TDIs arriving in the fall. There is one model missing in this list and that is the A4, but that will be changing with the next-generation model.

Audi of America President Scott Keogh told reporters today that the next-generation Audi A4, due out in 2014 will come with option of a 2.0L TDI engine.

Audi previously hinted at a diesel for the current A4, but Keogh said it didn't make sense.

"This deep in its life cycle, it didn't make any sense to do all that dramatic re-engineering and re-architecting of the car to basically only have a two-year selling period," said Keogh.

I hope Cadillac is paying attention. ATS and CTS need to get them some diesel power.

Definitely! :yes:

Absolutely.... though I'm not sure their current 2.0 liter is up to the task.

The twin-turbo 2.0L surely is, but maybe it could/should be pushed to some 200HP to be a bit above the Opel rating...

They can make a new one then. Need an 8-speed too. But this is often the problem with Cadillac, the powertrains are not up to the task or out of the corporate parts bin. GM needs to pump some money into Cadillac to get them some new engines.
