I'm just an old fart wanting to get to work / putt around for less fuel $$$,,,
The CRD 3.0 is the first 'small' diesel I know of to be produced by Dodge/Chrysler/Fiat for the US market,,,
If I could get 400 ft lbs of TQ and ~27-28~ mpg highway with a RCSB 1/2 ton,,,, That's what would 'impress' me in a truck,, Don't care if it only has 6 cylinders, I ain't much for a lot of exhaust noise these days,,,,,.
Will a CRD 3.0 V-6 w/8 speed 'impress' me??,,, dunno. Would like to see 'em at least try,,,, (Looks like we'll see an 8 speed Pentastar in a RAM before we'll see a CRD.)
Eh??? What???? Go fast?
Well,,,, my 'go-fast' machine only has a 1.9 litre 2-banger,,,, it's not really that noisy,,, not even that fast,,,
Heck, it ain't even got 4 wheels!!!! =)
