I guess to get an idea of how fast it might be, we should look at the Cherokee with 3.0 and 3.42 rear (?). The Jeep weighs less but not that much less and did 7.7 seconds 0 to 60 and 16 seconds in the quarter. Not the quickest skateboard out there but not that slow either.

I was reading a thread over on the Ford forum about the EB vs EcoD. Don't know how accurate but some one posted this estimate with the 8 speed gearing and 3.55 rear

@ 1500rpm the diesel probably has more HP than the Eco
@ 2000rpm both would be the same
@ 2500rpm both would be the same
@ 3000rpm both would be the same

How much this equates to speed I do not know, but that is not the intent of the EcoD.
