These "new "engines are in fact Fiat engines.
Fiat had actually many "firsts" in Diesel technology and their diesel engines are very reliable and durable.
The first direct injection diesel car was a Fiat Croma in 1986 (?)
it had amazing gas mileage ( about 6L/100 km)
Then the second breakthrough came with the so called common rail diesel alos called JTD or later Multijet, launched by Fiat as well and adopted later by Mercedes-benz and Peugeot.
Common rail diesel are cleaner and much quieter.
GM could not find a better partner than Fiat to develop diesel engiens.
Opel performance has also a 212hp(!) twin turbo version of this 1.9L diesel in the works.
