My 08 will be traded after the first year of production..... Have to wait for all the bugs to be worked out + there will be a transmission upgrade and other new goodies the year after like always....

A FIAT diesel engine would be very good. I have drove several of them in tractors and they are very good running motors and durable. i know of several guys who have worn the tractor out before the engine.
Its the next best thing to a Cummins.

the boys over at gm have had the same concept in the works with a 4.3L equivalent d-max. not that this would be cool in these forums but I was pretty stoked when i heard that.. imagine instead of a 350 conversion in an s-10 a d-max conversion!!

i've read that Rams may get a diesel engine, as well as some of the larger Chrysler cars, its now on hold, but, it may be a Fiat, Mercedes, or Cummings diesel, but, there are rumors that Banks is experimenting with a diesel engine, that i would like to see & purchase

Cummins just signed a multi year deal to continue to supply Chrysler with their engines last week. So they are not going anywhere.

As for the light duty diesel, all the manf, including Ford and GM, put a hold on the development of them last year. Being things have stabilized, hopefully they will look at them again. I personally think there is a market. Especially if they can get the MPGs up.

Lots of buyers out there who want diesel in half ton. the first one out will get the most attention. Hope Dodge does it soon, this would help finances. GM also has a nice 4.5L Duramax waiting to go in the half ton. Ford diesel sucks lately. Go Cummins go

Noticed this article when I was reading the one on the first page of the thread. Sounds like a 1500 cummins diesel is still a possibility.
