Ford Bold Moves

I checked back a couple of pages and didnt find anything like this posted. I saw a ad on a website about this and took a look, its very informative.

One of the big things on it is the COMMUNITY BUZZ, where SEVERAL times, they mention "Why doesnt ford bring over the Euro Focus?" Its worth a gander.

Can you write one that tells them how to pass emissions? Have you noticed, Ford isn't the only one without a diesel here?

Everyone has diesels- just not many little ones. Jeep is offering a 2.7L diesel in their Liberty trucks- no turbo, not good mileage IMO. The same motor is offered in the Sprinters, but I think it has a turbo. The Sprinter is out of my price range, and the regular E-250 P-stroke is just better suited for my needs.

The problem with diesels in passenger cars is the opinion of the majority of Americans because of GM's ludicrous idea to convert old Olds gas motors to diesel motors during the diesel craze in the early 80's. People are unwilling to trust anything except VW and Mercedes, but Ford's Duratorque is on par with other little diesels in Europe, and should be capable of passing emmissions in the US also.

Heh, I will NEVER trust VW.

But yeah, I would have to say Americans have little experience with diesels...but since their introduction in the heavy duty pickup line they have gained significant interest.

I think that diesels will someday be very common in the US, it will take 2-4 years for it to get going though.
