After much thinking I'm going to order the CRD when the order banks open up in April in USA.

I drive a lot of miles (25K year), 70-80% of it highway miles and that seems to be the best case for a diesel. I'm rationalizing the extra up-front cost (4,500) as somewhat offset by higher residual value in the end over same SUV with gas engine. I tend to keep my cars a long time so the end may be a while. I read that diesels can go for a ton of miles if they are maintained. I will be pretty diligent on maintenance, getting all recommended services.

For me the extra cost of Lux II package isn't a factor because I would be getting it anyway, plus they even give you a $1000 break on Lux II price with CRD because it's mandatory.

I don't technically need the extra power but I'm sure it will be fun to drive. I don't tow anything heavy right now, just a utility trailer, but we've talked about trying out a vacation rental travel trailer someday so the extra power would come in handy.

I get Chrysler Affiliate discount through work so will be using that.

They had a model of the CRD on display at the NY auto show.

Yeah looks like late August early Sept delivery assuming they actually do start production in late June.

Be careful with info from dealers they often aren't well informed. Milous has production late June so ordering would likely open most in early June but anything is possible the way it's been going. May depends on how smoothly the export run of CRDs goes.
