You can argue all you want. my argument and opinion will remain unchanged ...you can't sell me on it. It will be a disappointment.
I'm not trying to sell you on it. I know plenty of guys like you and you'll never change your mind. Just giving everyone else an opposing opinion based on what info I can find on this engine at the moment instead of just saying this thing will suck or it will the the best thing since sliced bread with no reasoning behind it. I'll be ordering one. If I don't like it when it comes in, I may wind up with a hemi. I've driven 8sp hemi trucks already and they are very nice.

The Eco Diesel will be $3k more than an equally equipped Hemi but after you throw a lift, tune, and big tires on an Eco Diesel you probably still beat out the stock Hemi in mpg. Of course it would be foolish for me to buy a Hemi or Eco Diesel simply looking at fuel economy, but I plan to mod it and just seems that the Eco Diesel might be a better option to handle bigger tires and lift...
Like I said, I'm not sure how long it will take for tunes to come around, but since it uses the same ecm as the euro version and there are tunes available for it right now, I don't think it will take all that long. In the diesel power write up they did on the 3.0, Gale Banks seems to think it has the potential of 500-600 hp. I doubt that is on stock internals, though.

I was looking at this, too. Not too bad in a fairly large suv.

P.S. To mexi, the ecodiesel has MORE torque than the hemi in stock form. Not the same torque as you've said twice now.
