Well, there will be a WK2 Diesel - maybe just not for the US Market. Target is in about 4-6 Month, the 3.0l Diesel Engine will come from VM. But they do cost more, maybe more then a HEMI.

Re: Demand is so HIGH......

Dont mean to change the subject... but to be brutally honest with you I could care less about hybrids, electric cards etc. not one of them interest me and IMO the hybrids of today dont make such a significant change in mpg or even environmentally. But people eat it up specially the ones that have a hard time finding out where the gasoline goes...
