Voting for the 2015 Diesel Car of the Year and the 2015 Diesel Car Manufacturer of the Year has begun. Seven automakers, Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Jeep, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, and Volkswagen, currently offer diesel passenger cars and SUVs in the U.S. The field this year has increased by almost 25%, with 28 nominees compared to last year’s 23.

To vote, scroll further down on this page.

For the first time, three manufacturers, Audi, BMW, and VW, each have six diesel models available and eligible for your vote.

This year’s field of nominees includes three diesel newcomers, including one from Audi, the A3 TDI, and two from BMW, the BMW 740Ld and the BMW X3 xDrive28d. One candidate returns after a year’s absence, the Volkswagen Golf TDI.

Other entrants, which continue on the ballot from past years, include five from Audi, the A6 TDI, the A7 TDI, the A8 L TDI, the Q5 TDI and the Q7 TDI; four from BMW, the 328d Sedan, the 328d Sports Wagon, the 535d, and the X5 xDrive35d; one each from Chevrolet and Jeep, the Cruze Diesel and the Grand Cherokee ECODiesel; four from Mercedes-Benz, the E250 BlueTec, GLK250 BlueTec, the GL350 BlueTec, and the ML350 BlueTec; and six from Volkswagen, the Beetle TDI, the Beetle Convertible TDI, the Jetta Sedan TDI, the Passat TDI, and the Touareg TDI.

The winner of the 2014 Diesel Car of the Year was the Chevrolet Cruze. In 2013, the Volkswagen Passat TDI took top honors. Previous winners include the BMW X5 xDrive35d and the BMW 335d.

The 2014 Diesel Car Manufacturer of the Year was Chevrolet. Previous winners include BMW and Volkswagen.

As always, it’s up to readers of The Diesel Driver to select the winners. Last year, over 11,000 ballots were cast. There are two separate ballots, one for the Diesel Car Manufacturer of the Year and the other for the Diesel Car of the Year. Simply vote and click on “next” to get to the second ballot.
