Re: Diesel People - Enlighten Me? (2014)

Aussie friends, thoughts on 0-60 times of the CRD vs the V6? Any trials you are aware of that show how the match up? I know the new 8sp should provide an improvement for both. But I am curious if the 2013s are similar or if the v6 beats the CRD?

In Australia and Europe the 0-60 time for the CRD is half a second quicker than the Hemi (we don't use the V6 petrol as a comparison for any of the performance stats, only fuel economy, and the CRD beats the V6 hands down in that also).

Eh. The local chain big box home improvement store here started carrying DEF for $9 us for 2.5 gal jug. With the 8gal urea tank good for 10,000 miles, I think I can handle $27 and 5 minutes every 9 months or so.

Based on what you guys for fuel and vehicles

Keep an eye on tflcar.com. They are doing a video series of the press event in Texas. The next video is a review specifically of the CRD and the teaser at the end of video 4 is them torque loading it off the line and then hauling a$$ away from the camera...

They said 7.77 seconds 0-60... But no comparison to the gas engines?

Re: Diesel People - Enlighten Me? (2014)

they said $56K, right?

I got my 2012 in 2011 for 41 from list of 46. I don't see that happening with the diesel.... So that's at least a $10K premium for a less powerful engine (oh, and audi LED's). Man, I like good MPG, but that's tough dough, and a LOT of gas... Just sayin'...

Re: Diesel People - Enlighten Me? (2014)

That was a summit.

Personally, I don't think the performance is bad at all for a 5600 lb vehicle. In the limited trim with lux, the premium is not nearly as much.

$56k is what we pay for the Laredo drive away in Australia, and your complaining about paying that for a summit.
Geez you guys are cheap. ;-)
