So no V8 or V10tdi anymore? Wonder why? Competing with the higher priced Cayennes and Audis?
Still that's great mileage out of the V6tdi. Close to 30mpg in an effectively full size SUV is awesome. (Too bad the US mfr's don't pull their heads out of their ^&^#$# and start producing some light duty diesels. I'm set for vehicles for years to come right now, but for my purposes, a 1/2 ton truck with a 450ft/lb+ diesel would be perfect.)
Oh wait, I got one. Too bad it's 18yrs old and too many miles!
Behold, the last American made 1/2 ton diesel!
