No clue how that Thailand comment is related. Thailand is a drug-infested, immoral, POS, backward place. No reasonable American would get near that mess or use it as a standard for anything reasonable.

Sad to see Chrysler did not want that smaller Cummins for the Cherokee or Wrangler. Unless it's a bit rough and loud, the engine size would seem to be a good fit for something smaller than a full-sized 1/2 ton pickup. Guess they have to sell their products for profit with no sense of pride in America.

If something like this does eventually go into production and sale, people here will buy it with little understanding of American history.

Thanks for the video links. It's good to know what's going on.
That is interesting now. Guess I mis-read the Thailand connection. Sorry.

Did pick up that there is no current start to production for sale. Also heard in that video one of them talk of the noise outside but how quiet it was inside.

Not sure if the engine was a 4 or 6 cylinder and if it was in-line. Knew Cummins had a V-8, 5 liter diesel running around. That's what I thought they were going to use. That's a bit big and heavy for a 1/2 ton and probably better suited for 3/4 ton trucks.

As for the 2.8 liter, no matter the configuration, I think it would be too small for a full-sized 1/2 ton, especially if towing was in the mix. Bet it would have great fuel mileage.

Another issue is emissions. Will it be set up as we have with the DPF and DEF systems or will that be modified as GM does with the Duramax and still keep that system,. Some diesel cards do not even have to use the DEF system. That would be nice.
