Default New Diesel Review

I thought I would include a link to a new review (Canadian) of the EcoDiesel.

I was waiting patiently for the ecodiesel to be released, and then RAM Canada released it's pricing information; $4500 over the Hemi....

I was at the dealer buying a Hemi a few days later.

Like everything else, looks like we get shafted for this too. Not impressed.

For quite awhile now gas prices have been cheaper out here. Right now about 10 cents a litre

so 7.4 = ~31 mpg? That's pretty impressive. I personally had waited for the diesel, but after doing the math, it would've taken me 9 years as I expect to drive less than ~5k/year.

I'm waiting for official MPG rating first. Seems like that'll happen before ordering opens up.

I've been checking with a couple of local dealers frequently. As of yesterday, they knew several of their JGCs are in storage, but no idea when they'll get them. I'm going tomorrow to look at Granite Crystal jeep, just to see the color. I'll ask again then.

I have been saying for years that I wanted a 1500 diesel. When I found out that Dodge had announced one, my first thought was I'm there.

I don't buy a full sized truck for the fuel economy. The engine that is under the hood shouldn't change that. Sure it's impressive to find a full sized truck that is rated in the high 20s, and that would be great.

What's not great is the up charge on the diesel. It was expected, and if I go that route and purchase a diesel then I'll pay what ever the up charge is. I do suspect that they will have "deals" where you can get the "no charge diesel" just like you can get the "no charge HEMI" several times a year. I have my doubts that you're truly getting them for "no charge", as they'll take it from you somewhere else..

When I buy a new truck. I'm very likely to look into the diesel. I don't expect that to happen for several years. I've only got 28K on my '20 CC

just my opinion.
