The 2011 Volkswagen Jetta should make its debut later this summer and arrive in dealerships shortly after. However, the popular fuel-sipping Jetta TDI may be delayed until early 2011. A Volkswagen official told the guys over at Inside Line is expected to show up a little late. No reason was provided for the delay.

The 2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI is expected to carry the same direct-injected 4-cylinder diesel making 140-hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. It will be available with either a 6-speed manual or the company’s DSG dual-clutch transmission.

The new Jetta will get most of its design cues from the Volkswagen New Compact Coupe Hybrid Concept that was unveiled at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show.
