Honestly, the above argument is more bias than true isn't it? All engines are expensive if they fail, BUT modern engines hardly ever fail and I'm guessing diesels in general are even more reliable than gassers. Am I wrong? I hear this argument a lot, but have yet to see any evidence that shows Diesel engines are more expensive to repair WHEN FAILURE RATE is taken int account.
Totally agree!

Re: Help me decide. Diesel or HEMI

From reading the original post, the only reason for the OP to buy a diesel would be to say, "I have a diesel".

The V6 would probably meet every need but additional fun that comes with more power. Since MPG was not listed as a critical point, the Hemi would fit the bill without any additional tuning.

I don't even know what "tuck the donk in" means and I still think it's funny!

Re: Help me decide. Diesel or HEMI

Both the Hemi and the Pentastar are really fine engine choices....I did extensive test driving with the Pentastar and thought it was very refined and had more than enough power, so I completely understand why many people would go in that direction.....that being said, I LOVE the Hemi in my Overland and really enjoy driving it.....it's a beautiful match for the ZF 8-speed......the passing power at the top end is really impressive, which makes highway driving a ton of fun......in fact, I purposely look for reason to take it on the highway....I think the choice comes down to whether or not you really NEED the diesel...in other words, would the diesel actually add tangible value in your life...do you need the better fuel economy, do you need a superior tow vehicle....My GC is not my DD so I may not have the best perspective on this issue, but I really am impressed by both of the gas engines available in the non SRT GC's.........
