Hyundai to offer diesel Veracruz in U.S. by 2010 By KATHY JACKSON | AUTOMOTIVE NEWS AutoWeek | Updated: 05/01/07, 8:59 am et SEOUL -- Hyundai plans to sell a clean diesel engine in the United States in 2009 or 2010.The company's first V-6 diesel, called the S-engine, will be offered on the Veracruz mid-sized crossover, says Dong Jin Kim, CEO of Hyundai Motor ***The 3.0-liter diesel already is available on Veracruz models sold in Europe and Korea. But it does not meet U.S. standards for all 50 states."We think this is a very good engine," Kim says. "With a little more effort we can meet the U.S. requirements. Then we will export the Veracruz with that engine."The engine was developed by Hyundai and uses turbocharging and cold-start technology from BorgWarner Inc. The electronically controlled turbocharger results in better performance, greater fuel economy and reduced emissions, according to BorgWarner. The engine generates 240 hp.The seven-passenger Veracruz went on sale in the United States in March. It is Hyundai's first mid-sized crossover and is the brand's most expensive vehicle: $26,995, including shipping.
