USA needs a diesel SUV
We are in the market for a diesel SUV for our family of 4 plus dog and cannot find a newer American made auto. Ford used to make the Excursion and though its totally not "PC", it would be great to get one. They are hard to come by and go for a lot of money! We would like AWD or 4 x 4 capability as we like to ski and camp. We would like to be able to tow a boat or one of the newer trailers and be able to have enough seats for 7 people. I've seen the Ford Eurovan which looks like its being launched over sees and think if that could be diesel and AWD or 4x4 with seating for at least 7, it would be great! It would be like a more compact Ford Excursion, how perfect is that in today's green world! Maybe even later it could be an electric/diesel motor! Thanks for reading! This would be an all around

Jake J Yeah, the expedition gets horrible mpg, a diesel engine option would sell it to more customers.

Dennis T 'Serial Hybrid': I have suggested this before. The concept would use less fuel. Electric motors have a lot of torque and also be used to brake the vehicle. Diesel-Electric locomotives on a smaller scale. Ford, please do this. Getting away from 'ICE' is the future. Using less fuel with a Serial Hybrid concept would buy more time so the Hydrogen age will happen.
