One more diesel US is not getting: Chrysler 300C

While the standard Chrysler 300C with the Mercedes sourced 3.0 liter CRD engine has been available in Europe since the beginning of 2006, the Chrysler 300C CRD Touring was just introduced in the UK. If you check out the full article, you'll notice that the 300C Touring is basically a Dodge Magnum with a Chrysler 300C front end. The Chrysler 300C is one of the few American cars that gets halfway decent reviews across the pond, and the version with the V6 diesel engine is generally considered as the engine of choice for the car. While the diesel engines gives the car less straight line speed compared to the Hemi engine, for real-world use where torque is the name of the game, the diesel is the answer. On top of reducing fuel consumption, the diesel engine version is also considerably cheaper than the Hemi powered variant. I sure hope DaimlerChrysler brings this one over to the US as well.
