62GM says it will offer more diesels in US, but on which vehicles?

The desire for more diesel vehicles on American roads has become a popular talking point among automotive enthusiasts. We hear about the super-efficient, high performance oil burners cruising all over Europe and don't see any reason that they couldn't work here.
