Re: Cheapest 2014 Diesel You Can Get

Right now in Winkler MB, regular is $1.359/liter, and diesel is $1.169/liter and premium is $1.459/liter. Once winter diesel gets here, diesel will become the same or a little higher. I used to have a Jetta diesel and paid more attention before.

My area (southern California) I've seen diesel less than regular unleaded for the last couple of weeks; of course not all gas stations. It'll go back up past premium once winter rolls around.

It varies widely by state or maybe it it the price of gas that varies widely and diesel stays about the same. A good source by location is Gas Buddy. Here and now diesel is about 15c more than mid-grade (89)

The only affordable diesel in the US remains the Jetta TDI and it sells like hotcakes. Why can't manufacturers figure out that people who want diesels are interested in fuel economy and are sometimes cheapskates.
The tide is turning. I believe some vehicles in the Mazda lineup are adding diesel options in the US in Q3. If the forums are correct, that will add about $2-2.5K to the price over the gasoline versions.

Yeah it's about 10-15% per litre more expensive in Oz; you'd have to wonder why diesel is more expensive than petrol when it's less refined.

Re: Cheapest 2014 Diesel You Can Get

Just as an aside if you think you are being hard done by on the diesel model try $55k for the export Laredo diesel over here!

Don't forget, our export diesel laredo is closer in specifications to the us limited, things such as 18 inch wheels, heated front seats, voice command cd/dvd stereo, dual zone climate control with bluetooth,self levelling hid headlights, power folding mirrors, rain sensing wipers,rear view camera, and full time 4wd are all standard.

And you can't get a CRD in a Laredo in the US. I mean, once you can get a CRD at all in the States.

I believe this will only be the case in the short term. The diesel will extend into the lower priced markets as time goes on. My guess, if the first year goes well, the CRD will be offered in the Laredo model as well, especially if a competing vehicle in its segment offers a diesel or is rumored to offer one in the future.

(The Chevy Cruise Diesel is $25,695 with 46 mpg highway.)

Because sometimes people who want diesels want the towing power and awesome low end torque as well.

Or, hopefully Jeep will bring out a Gale Banks Special Edition GC to make up for letting the Ram have all the early diesels.

Cost is also a factor to consider since Americans traditionally are not fans of Diesel motors. Obviously that stigma is slowly changing but wait a year. There are other factors to consider too since this engine was not designed in Auburn Hills. I think what they are doing is correct for a business standpoint. If you run a Multi billion dollar company then you exactly what I am talking about....and I am not trying to belittle anyone here. The market will decide this.
Given the backlog and inability of most dealers around here to keep more than just a couple GCs on the lot, and the strong sales of the Overland and higher models, I wouldn't expect any profit making company in their right mind to try to drop prices on easily the hottest SUV--or risk stockholders screaming bloody murder.

They cost more than a good BMW coupe, yet they are not gathering dust.

... and unfortunately, except for UConnect, they are damn nice vehicles.
