2016 Volkswagen Jetta Specs and Release Date

We may not be approaching a new year on the calendar, but in the world of Volkswagen, it’s time to start getting excited about 2016. That’s because the 2016 model year is upon is, and we have the information you need to know about the 2016 Volkswagen Jetta specs and release date. The Jetta has been a long time favorite of VW drivers, and now, some significant changes are about to further excite those who love this compact car.

2016 Volkswagen Jetta Engine Specs and Performance

While the 2.0-liter naturally aspirated engine has served Jetta drivers well, it is being retired from the Jetta trimline. Instead, a new 150-horsepower 1.4-liter turbocharged engine will produce the power and efficiency drivers look for in the Jetta S and SE model. Of course, this means the new engine, delivering 184 lb.-ft. of torque, also replaces the 1.8T engine in the SE model.

Volkswagen estimates the engine underneath the hood of the Jetta will be capable of an impressive 39 highway mpg. This is a manufacturer estimated highway fuel economy that is an improvement of 15 percent over the 2.0-liter engine the new 1.4T replaces.
