It is the same motor used in the new Jeeps.
I thought the Sprinters used Mercedes diesels?

I have a Cummins in my Ram, and I can tell you, when it comes up on the turbo, you move!
I for one would love to see more diesels in vehicles in the U.S.
It seems that the idea of the old black smoke belching diesel is ingrained into the American psyche,
and they just won't let go of it.
Today's diesel is more efficient, and as clean, as quiet, ( almost), as a gas motor.

They are also so much more efficient on the highway, they get great mileage.

When I consider the difference in cost for a gallon of diesel fuel, and the additional thousands they tack onto the price for a diesel engine, it is not clear to me that I could ever break even on it.

But I wish I could still get a black smoke belching diesel. I really like pissing off Green Piece, the Sierra Club, The EPA, and everyone who drives a prius.

Also keeps the tailgaters off your rear when they suck up that black cloud through their ventilation system and fill the cab.

As a diesel fanatic, you guys do realize that you look like ******* frat boys when 'rolling coal', right? That just screams 'LOOK AT MY TINY PENIS! I HAVE A TINY PENIS AND HAVE TO GET ATTENTION BY BEING A FUEL-WASTING *******!'

I've actually been the guy following well beyond a normal distance with the vents shut down to avoid the black cloud. I can speak from experience. lol It doesn't happen often enough to bother me, but if it did that would be different.
