Nothing has changed the fact that the diesel engine is the most energy efficient internal combustion engine. It is a proven technology and its unique combination of efficiency, power, reliability, performance, low-emissions and suitability for using renewable fuels ensures a place for diesel technology to help meet the demands of a global economy.
Bosch announced that its clean diesel technology is featured on the 2015 Ram 1500, which includes a 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V6 equipped with a Bosch common-rail diesel fuel-injection system.
The Diesel Technology Forum has issued the following statement regarding the final report of the multi-year Advanced Collaborative Emissions Study (ACES) conducted by the Boston-based Health Effects Institute (HEI). HEI conducted the independent study of new technology diesel engines to determine whether the engines achieved the expected emissions reductions, thereby improving air quality for public health.
A new study of fuels and vehicles of the future predicts that diesel and gasoline will remain the predominant transportation fuels, and diesel cars could gain significant market share in the next 10 years. The growth of vehicles running on alternative fuels such as E85 and electricity will accelerate over the next decade, but diesel
