Honda's 2.2-liter i-CTDi diesel engine

Honda readies its diesel engines for passenger vehicles in the U.S.
reported in early June that Honda's newly redesigned Accord
would receive a diesel engine
. Honda today confirmed that the 2009 Honda Accord would be available with an optional 2.2 liter i-CTDi 4-cylinder Tier 2 Bin 5 diesel engine.
The diesel engine is reported to produce in excess of 150 HP, while torque -- always a diesel strength -- is pegged at 260 lb-ft. The diesel will be emissions legal in all 50 states and is set to deliver real word fuel economy in excess of 40 MPG.
If the fuel economy estimates pass the
Environmental Protection Agency's testing
, that would make the diesel Accord more fuel efficient than the previous generation Accord Hybrid and Toyota's current Camry Hybrid.
The 2.2 liter diesel is expected to be closely followed by a
new 3.5 liter V6 diesel destined for Honda's large vehicles
. The engine is 30 percent more fuel efficient than the current 3.5 liter V6 gasoline engine used in the Odyssey, Pilot and Ridgeline according to the

Almost all diesels use a turbocharger, the benefits are the same 2 stroke or 4 stroke,it helps get a fresh charge into the large, very under square, cylinder at a decent volumetric efficiency without having huge/many ports that in turn would require huge/many valves. 2 strokes may benefit more from the scavenging but not much.
Where does it say its a 2 stroke engine in any case? I have not heard of any small diesels running a 2 stroke system. Only the large ones that turn at maximum of like 400RPM.

It's a 4 stroke.
