2018 Ford 150, 3.0L diesel, 440# ft of torque, 10 sp A/T, 30 mpg!
2019 Chevrolet Silverado, 3.0L, 5.3L, 6.2L diesels!
The 2018 VW Atlas, a fantastic (gasoline 2.0L, 3.5 V6 L) competitor for the segment midsize CUV, would be a total no-brainer with an optional twin TDI engine!
Too funny! (End of the new model year to) 1 to 5 years old can be the new ...new (initial depreciation/s) !
If MB can get the then new & new designed 2016/2017 GLC as problematic as they did: after a redesign of its reliable & durable as its predecessor, MB GLK 250 BT, I want to see how the next couple years will shape up. While it has no diesel drivetrain, it’s not looking good.
Indeed, there are precious few drivetrain combinations that can match the “out of the box” torque (406 # ft & 620 # ft 8 speed A/T) & skid pad specifications (.92G). The suspension is also included here.
I’ve been a longer-term admirer of (gas) Chevrolet Corvette engines. (5.7 L to 7.0 L) I’ve always loved how they’ve (crate engines) been used to RE-purpose older vehicles However, the best cruising, on street applications seems to be (way smaller) 3.0 L to 5.0 DIESEL platforms. The 8 speed A/T’s Toyota and ZF are also included.
I’d love a diesel Corvette with an 850 mile range! (32 mpg, 26.4 gal tank)
