Germans want 2007 to be the Year Of The Diesel in America
Americans will ignite a love-affair with diesel-powered cars in 2007 that will eventually reach European dimensions, while hybrids will remain a niche option, revealed as more of a feel-good publicity stunt than a serious method of powering cars efficiently, economically and at one with the environment.
I've owned a couple of diesel cars. They were great for mileage and reliable as hell. I dreaded heading into the mountains with them because they were sluggish, but I'm sure the new ones will have alot more power.
I WISH TO GOD that I had a diesel in my SIlverado. I absolutely LOVE the new Turbo Charged Diesels.....Think about easy 500hp and 1000lb/ft of torque!!! AND Gale Banks is working on a twin turbo setup for the duramax...700+hp....
