ELKHART LAKE, Wis. -- Cadillac will launch diesel-powered models in the U.S. early in the next decade, said the brand's president, Johan de Nysschen.
At a press event here, de Nysschen said Cadillac is working on four- and six-cylinder diesels that are expected to debut first in Europe, in around 2019.
"We will definitely bring them to the U.S.," de Nysschen said.
He did not say which models would be powered by the diesels. Luxury rivals Audi, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche offer diesel on select models.
Cadillac has an unfortunate history with diesels. Several models produced in the late 1970s and early 1980s were offered with the Oldsmobile-sourced 5.7-liter V-8 diesel that suffered quality problems.
