Hmm, Canada thing?

Local dealer ordered 2 - both sold before he got them. Have a buddy who sells at another dealer, they ordered 4. All gone before they arrived.

In Korea, they are starting to put diesels in passenger cars. I was fortunate to meet the head of GM's diesel engine division in Seoul a few years ago. He expressed that the diesel would dominate the market here. I can now see that he was correct.
Our Hyundai H1 van has a 2.5L Mitsubishi diesel engine. It is fantastic. 24 MPG, and I don't tow slowly, either... LOL

GM had plans to produce a "baby" v6 duramax, it got put on hold when the crap hit the fan, maybe it will get revived with all this.

I have heard some arguments that the coyote engines in the new fords are not as good for towing as the old 5.4 liter gas engines. Our 2010 F-150 5.4 (seems to pull our 2014 24 foot Wild Cat (T24RG) with no issues.
Anyone out there have a different opinion on this ??

I had a 06 F150 5.4L 3.73 rear end super crew and it just seed to run out of power. I pulled a 295BHS Springdale.
