VW presented the new Crafter vehicles

Volkswagen revealed the first new Crafter vehicles and more than that, test drive demonstrators are now everywhere in the dealerships. The model offers three wheelbase, three roof heights, four body lengths and also three gross vehicle weights: 3.0, 3.5 and 5.0 tons.
The Crafter uses a 2.0-liter TDI rail engine that was used before in the Amarok and in the Transporter. This engine is able to deliver 109 PS, 136 PS, 143 PS and 163 PS. The CO2 emissions are very low and also the fuel consumption is also low. The power delivered is the same at lower engine speeds than the 2.5-liter Blue TDI engine.
The new Crafter CR35 features a 2.0-liter TDI engine that is able to deliver 163 PS BlueMotion Technology and can achieve better fuel economy on the combined cycle than the previous 2.5-liter Blue TDI engine.
There is another great thing about it, apparently the engine is lighter.
