After driving a Diesel for several years, driving a gas vehicle now is a test of my patience. It feels like a comical waiting period to get to the real power. Kind of like turbo lag times a thousand.

High HP numbers are all well and good for the kids to boast about. I would rather have more power in the RPM range where I actually drive the vehicle most of the time. This Diesel engine fits that bill nicely. The mpgs are a bonus.

BTW, I got 32.8mpg from Milwaukee to Chicago yesterday. (Albeit, indicated, not calculated.)

Yeah, but I was stunned to see that he was driving on the wrong side of the road the entire time...and his Jeep has no steering wheel!

What's the premium on the self-driving CRD?

Re: What does the diesel actually sound like?

I've driven a lot of diesel cars, my Wife's car is a Mazda 6 atenza diesel, my daily driver is a ford courier diesel, some are dump truck noisy, others are more refined.
The GC diesel, from the outside at idle, is distinctly a diesel! From inside the car, it's very quiet.
No turbo noise when spooling up, no rattling valve gear, and as its a CRD, no injection pump noise.
