Re: 2014 diesel production

Dude you are like those guys from ICQ back in the day that would play all the little sound effects with their comments.... You must spend hours in prep time for the visual effects.

Great photo, I am well on my way there.

Yep, but the monitor was bigger than the cave man and heavier too.

God I remember the first 19" CRT I bought. That thing must have weighed 150 pounds!

To bring it back in line with the thread, this is also when Diesels couldn't keep pace going up a hill and didn't start below about 20 degrees. Certainly no 0-60 times unless you were counting in minutes

Awhile ago I commented that with all the engineering Fiat has at its disposal, I was amazed it could not certify the Diesel engine promptly, if that was the reason for the delay.

I felt that Fiat is now using Chrysler in the same way Daimler Benz did. This article is a nice read;

Chevy, are you talking about the production mix not including any limiteds? If not then I think we need more hints.

Negative.. It's merely a subtle "detail."

It's not a huge deal.. But it does seem to jump out at you. Considering what we've seen for the past year..

In reference to last year's builds, the Summit trim is my point of reference.

Change to the grill? Did they decide to give diesels the gray grill that originally were shown on the Laredo's.
