It is just logical to buy one. Better gas mileage, better towing, endless performance possibilities, better resale. And as for the low hp and torque ratings, wait a few months and invest in a tuner when it comes out and you could easily add 150 hp and 150 to 200 torque. I really want to see how well this engine is made. How much hp and ft/lbs of torque it can handle stock...

I have been waiting for a 1/2 diesel for my entire life. I always vowed that the first purchase of a new vehicle would be just that, respectively.

I'm not sure if that is a complement or sarcasm. I never said that it was going to be this specific model but that my first new purchase would be a 1/2 ton diesel.
I won't graduate for another couple of years so it is still some time away, and I'm sure by that time they will have a really nice offroad edition like Jeep is planning with the Trail Hawk II

I have an order for a 2013 2500 but I am thinking of changing to this depending on what their numbers are.

So, will this engine use urea ? If yes, how many miles to use a full tank of urea? And how much is this urea?
Is there any maintenance involved with this, compared to the gas engine? Does it freeze in the winter? Does it shut off the engine when it runs out? Does it void any warranties or affects any components?
All these combined with the premium price for the engine, premium price for the diesel (seems more expensive than gas in Canada) will not out balance just getting a Pentastar and be done with it. No secrets there in terms of costs and maintenance...
