I guess I'll be the first =)
Supposedly, they build (built) Dak Diesels in Brazil. Got a 2.5L
Detrioit Diesel with 221 Ft/lb torque. This would make it comparable
to my old 3.9L gas Dak. I'm in the market for around 300 Ft/lb, so
the Brazilian Dak won't cut it. One of the Mercedes motors will
likely do the trick for me.
VM Motori, makes it run a google search on "Jeep Liberty diesel" and you can
pull up all kinds of reviews and news articles on the truck and engine. it
puts out roughly 160 hp and 300 ftlbs of torque. impressive considering the
truck weighs roughly 1/4 ~ 1/2 what a lwb ram does. I believe if I was to
drag race my truck against my wife's liberty id loose hands down, and my ram
is no slouch.
Did some googling. I think the Motori motor would give me what I want.
I'd simply go out and buy a Liberty but an SUV, particularly a small
one, won't cut it for me. Now, if they made a Liberty *pickup*, that
would be another matter.
Motori is a division of Detroit Diesel.
Anyway, thanks for the link!
