I'm excited to see how well they run and if the motors hold up. Would like to trade the wifes car in on one if they turn out to be decent.

I've been thinking of trading in my 03 and my TDI for one. I'll give it some time first. Sure is tempting though.

This engine has been in the Jeep GC and the Chrysler 300 in the European union for several years and my understanding is that its a very dependable engine over there. IMHO, the only real unknown is if the US spec emission controls will be dependable or not.

I'm more excited about the Diesel Colorado and canyon coming out in the fall, 28mpg on a 4x4 truck seems amazing!

1500 RAM EPA mileage ratings

2WD 20 city 23 combined 28 hwy

4WD 19 city 22 combined 27 hwy


Only one mpg lost for 4wd, thats impressive.

Expected to provide unprecedented towing, payload and power, Colorado will offer advanced 2.5L I-4 and 3.6L V6 engines at launch. Joining the engine lineup in 2015: the highly anticipated 2.8L Duramax® Turbo-Diesel. No other current North American competitor in this class offers a turbo-diesel. But no matter which engine you choose, impressive performance and remarkable efficiency ride shotgun on every trip.
http://www.chevrolet.com/2015-colorado-small-truck.html

What I've read about the Colorado is that there will be no regular cab offered.

Dosent look like a regular cab 1500 will be an option either with the diesel.

hahaha, I like the way you think! I have weird thoughts of a decked out little crew cab Colorado with a healthy FPE EFIlive tune on it...

That's the kind of info I'm talking about. Good to know. My wife is wanting a jeep GC so I might get the diesel option.

These little 3.0's have all the right parts

http://www.dieselpowermag.com/tech/1...diesel_engine/

I believe the only banks engine parts are the intake and the turbo...... the rest is all VM Motori.
