Look what I read about: a Diesel Subaru Box Engine.
Interesting they want to push out some of these engines. The torque it pushes is amazing too.

They have been out for a while in europe. They do get banged for being a little noisy over the other new diesel engines but they are very good on fuel.

Yea you gotta love that torque starting at 1800rpm. Someone will tune the crap out of it and it will be a monster!!

Unfortunately we don't expect to see the diesel here in the states anytime soon. They are really striving to have 50 state compliance w/o going the urea injection route M-B took, and I'm also told they have some durability concerns regarding our market and what we as US consumers expect of a diesel engine.
Best guess anyone inside has been able to share with us is MAYBE 2011 model year at the earliest, but we're told not to hold our breath.
