Diesel
Why are manufacturers working so hard on hybrids when Diesel seems both mmore green, and more of a long term answer to petro independence. How about a 60 mpg Focus with a small turbo diesel?

Brian Langston The head of Ford Global decided that Americans do not want diesels. How we get that idea out of his head I have no clue. I would love the new Explorer with a diesel that gets around 30 mpg's. Of course it would be first in its class and tops in mpg! Think of what #'s it could get in an F150!

Kevin Finlay Why are they coupling batteries with crummy small gas motors. Can we get a diesel hybrid. Lots of torque plus tons of MPGs. Trains use them to haul freight. Why can't we use them to haul people?

Ward Souders Why stop at the Focus? VW can get great mileage across their range by dropping in a diesel! Americans are ready for a solution that Ford already has for the rest of the world, just refuses to bring here!
