Diesel's are cool for pulling stuff but run out of steam way too quick. Just when it starts getting good, it redlines and shifts.

Re: Accelleration in the v8 vs v6

Diesels are good for pulling, long distance traveling, good gas mileage. Hemis are the speed and second for pulling. V6 is the econo motor.

I thought Jeep was owned by an Italian company now

I just looked it up and they are in fact Italian majority owned. Well at least they are still 41.5% US owned and still make cars in the US, but then again lots of companies are starting to build in the US since the US worker is getting cheaper on the world market, VW pays $16 an hour in the Southern US and they have 400 applicants a week.

Wikipedia "Chrysler Group LLC, organized in alliance with the Italian automaker Fiat.[5][6] Initially holding a 20% interest in Chrysler Group, Fiat's stake was increased to 58.5% (fully diluted) following acquisition of the equity interests held by the U.S. Treasury (6% on 3 June 2011) and Canada (1.5% on 21 July 2011) [7][8]"

Re: Accelleration in the v8 vs v6

being a turbo we all know there is going to be some insane power adders available for the CRD. Chip might add 50hp and get that torque up over 600Nm <drool> can't wait till it hits our shores in America. Kinda glad they are working out the bugs in Europe and down under, kinda like Honda used to do with its cars before bringing them into the US (now they just manufactuer them in the USA).

I think JEEP is smart keeping it positioned between the Penta and Hemi, they don't want to canabalize HEMI sales. Leave it up to the aftermarket for those that want to out do the HEMI
