Last year, rumors surfaced claiming AMG may launch a Bluetec diesel SUV but since then nothing really has eventuated on that front. Those rumors came about following comments from AMG exec Volker Mornhinweg, stating “in the near future AMG has the opportunity for both hybrids and diesels.”
Now, AutoExpress is reporting that AMG is close to releasing a new diesel fueled car. AMG will be launching five facelifted models over the next 12 months and any one of these could potentially feature a high output diesel powertrain. Some of the cars due to for an update include the new SL, CLS and M-Class, the latter being the most likely candidate for a diesel.
