I would also bet this is one of the factory employees smokin the reefer on his break, as its one thing to misbadge a vehicle with an actual option, its another to grab a badge that has yet to be installed on ANY of the hatches and tape it on.
Sorry to offend anyone on here that works at the factory but I wouldn't doubt it, or getting plastered on a couple of 40's in the parking lot. Hey, my workplace is filled with losers and numbnuts too. Plus this isn't the first time there have been badging mistakes on WK2's. I pointed one out a couple of months ago to a guy who bought an Overland which had the Trail-Rated badge on the front drivers side fender. Only problem was his car had 20's and was not optioned with the Off-Road Package.

Have to question the quality control if something that obvious passes through inspection. Nobody during the entire process thought... Hey, we don't have diesel engines?!?! Why would a north American plant even have those badges in the factory at this point?

Re: WK2 CRD sighting in U.S.

interesting that the CRD badge would be even be available on the assembly line when this was built.

Re: WK2 CRD sighting in U.S.

As others have said, diesel versions are now in production at the same plant for export.

Even more frustrating that American brand is manufacturing cars in America with better options for foreign buyers.

Re: WK2 CRD sighting in U.S.

The CRD in my guess will be a single exhaust like the current WK2 V6 (which completely outsell the V8 six to one)and the WK CRD, duals most likely will only come on the Hemi engine. Just IMO.

It has already been confirmed that it has dual exhaust. See?
