Tested the 2.7CRD GC not long time ago, seriously lack of torque and power vs the V8, very tractorish feeling, i will deff Go for a V8 again.
You knew I would have to reply to this didnt you?!!
It must have been duff one you tried. Same torque as a V8 and at much lower revs! Apart from starting from cold you would not really know mine was a diesel....its pretty quiet.
