Not just that, but 420 ftlbs from just off of idle. If there is anything a diesel's excel at it is low end torque. My only close comparison is the way a Touareg TDI drives, while the v8 gasser is technically faster 0-60 the low-end thrust from the TDI makes the Deisel feel faster, even more so when you are cruising down the highway and need some midrange punch. I do not doubt a modded Hemi will out run a modded Diesel, however I think the Deisel will "feel" stronger in all but an all out, foot to the floor drag race. The Hemi needs to rev, not so with the oil burner.
