2014 Jetta 1.8T EA888

Say goodbye to the 2.5L engine in the Jetta and hello to a new 1.8L TSI engine. The new engine is lighter, 15% more efficient, and produces more toque than the engine it replaces. ┬áThe new EA888 1.8T will be assembled at Volkswagen’s new engine plant in Mexico.

Orders for the 2014 Jetta 1.8T begin next month and the car goes on sale in August. If you would like to read all about the new engine check out this PDF.

    My 2002 Passat has a 1.8T with a 170hp but I guess the difference is that the 2002 version had 166 ft/lbs of torque while this one has about 236 ft/lbs (320 Newton/metres). I’m assuming that means it will feel quicker, not necessarily be faster to 60 mph.
