New Toyota Diesel Engines Ready to Power Next Generation

Toyota, creator of fuel-efficient vehicles such as the Prius family, Camry, and many others, recently revealed two new diesel engines that will power the next generation of Toyota vehicles. The two new engines are both direct-injection turbo diesel set-ups; one is a 2.8-liter engine, while the other is a 2.4-liter engine.

The engines are special because they are more than just the next-generation of diesel engines; they are also the first use of Thermo Swing Wall Insulation Technology (TSWIN), not just by Toyota, but by any automaker in the entire world. This new technology should make Toyota’s new vehicles up to 15% more efficient and increase the torque available in cars powered by these engines by up to 25%.

The new Toyota diesel engines, called the GD family engines, will replace the KD engine family, which currently consists of 3.0-liter and 2.5-liter diesel engines. Toyota will launch these new engines in up to 150 markets around the world by 2020, but they will make 700,000 of the new efficiency machines as early as 2016.
