And a combined fuel economy of 9.3L/100 KM for the 4x4
True but it won't pass emission standards so it would have to be cut down to probably 3/4 of power and torque. 0-60 would be like 1.5 hour
as somebody else point out. write your congress and senate people to lower EPA standards if you want diesel otherwise not going to happen

To clarify... it's not so much to LOWER EPA standards... but get us congresspersons with enough gonads to will take away the authority of the EPA (and other agencies) to ADMINISTRATIVELY impose policy and RULES that screw up the lives of Americans, and yet don't have to answer to anyone. That is the ESSENCE of tyranny!

The EU has tighter clean air standards than we do that doesn't kill the diesel. Why?
