When anyone mentions the fact that drugs are cheaper in other countries the drug companies say that they have to charge more here so they have enough money to fund research for future drugs. Yeah, that's BS you smell.


1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years

Especially now, it's very important for Chrysler to make a profit in whatever it does, and if this is true, then their research has said there wouldn't be enough demand to cover the production costs, environmental regulations, along with the marketing and dealer service and support that goes along with it.

The Cummins works in the 2500 and 3500 RAM as most buyers require a diesel there and are willing to pay extra for it. Chrysler just needs to get the Pentastar V6 in the Wrangler which will help.

I think they should develop an I-6 like GM's 4.2L I-6 that would help, not to many people are interested by a "Mini Van V6" in there jeep. weather this is or isn't true i have no idea but i get what they are saying. . .

How hard would it be to import a diesel?

Impossible.

The short of it is that you can't import a vehicle to the USA unless it's 25 years old.

Is GM still using that engine? With the Trailblazer and Envoy gone isn't the I-5 in the Colorado and Canyon the only version of that engine still around?

GM ended production of the Trailblazer early last year and same goes for the I6. They are also going to be getting rid of the I5 in the near future, I can't remember when, but sometime soon.

Okay, since there probably won't be a diesel, what about a 4-cyclinder turbo? How much for a AEV J8 Diesel?

I never used to pay any attention to the Blue Oval either, but their new stuff coming out is down right topnotch. It feels good to be excited about American cars again.
As for the beer and coffee no need for an "or" Im down for both lol.

Logic is my religion.

My point was the "Mini van V-6" turned a lot people i know off to the Jeep brand period they simply refuse to buy another, now if those dozen folks felt that way i'm sure a few more world wide felt the same

GM's New S-10's the Colorado and the canyon are getting axed, first the Chevy goes in 2010 then shortly there after the GMC goes, why not ditch both at the same time ?

I really don;t much care for Chrysler myself it could disappear tomorrow i wouldn't miss it.

Jeep on the other hand i would like to see continue on, would also like to see a little less SUV/Car blending and more wrangler & pickup truck toughness

the CJ/Wrangler looking truck's started Jeep the willy's pickup was a high seller, then they tried blending the 2 and came up with the scambler it flopped.

But the Comanche/J10-30 & CJ's-Wrangler truck's kept jeep rolling along then in 1988 the Full sized truck's got dropped then in 1992 the Compact truck's got dropped they went in SUV's which worked out just fine good idea

But these Car/SUV Van things ? come on really ?

Jeep was setup to be the Brute/bully not the sissy school girl . . .

IMO that's Jeep

gotcha. . .

Getting excited abut American car's is what i think this whole Automaker's bankruptcy/ bail out is all about

I am sure for the 30-60 -90 years they where making millions billions trillions i am sure not every drop of that was spent i am sure they have plenty tucked away for a rainy day . . .

Government doesn't want diesel's because it puts up the price of fuel. War uses lots of diesel fuel and they want it all.

You have to sort of wonder if there isn't some sort of unspoken agreement that Europe gets to use diesel and America only uses gas.

Even Subaru took there famous boxer engine and made a diesel out of it. The Forrester diesel gets a combined 37mpg verses the 22mpg (combined) that we're getting now. That's a phenomenal increase in mpg performance...but for some reason, there are no plans on bringing it to the states anytime soon. But what do you expect? Between Uncle Sam's cut on my paycheck, all of the wonderful hidden fees like the 'state 911', 'county 911', and 'emergency 911' (as if I would dial 911 when it wasn't an emergency!!!) on my phone bill, and the taxes on gas and everything else that I buy, I'm donating 45+% of everything I make to Uncle Sam...and the country is still 13 trillion in debt. It's obvious they can't make a logical decisions!

The diesel engine is a perfect match for the high-torque @ low rpm needs of an off-road vehicle. If it wasn't, then the Army wouldn't have put it in the Hummer.

when i was in the corps i was in a 4 shop we did the rebuilds on the humvee 6.5 s lol most of them are only making about 170 hp to the fly wheel the big reason the mill went diesel in the humvee is so every thing in there line up can run off jp8 every thing from club carts to jets
