Diesel are slow accelerating then gas engines . . . so get the same performance as 170-190hp Gas engine the diesel would have turn out 250-275hp . . .
a 325hp diesel 3/4ton has the same 0-75mph as a 275hp gas 3/4ton.
Diesel is stronger but Gas is faster they showed this on TV Power bock's a dozen times over the years . . .
Its a Jeep, not a racecar..... We have flat windshields and don't care about 0-75 (well almost flat for those JK owners).
I want a diesel for:
1. LOW END TORQUE
2. Strength and reliability
3. Slightly better fuel economy
4. LOW END TORQUE
