Re: Ford, GM, Chryler & Diesels
Diesels are not the panacea some of you believe them to be.
They are noisy, stinky, expensive and spew particulates.
Other technologies are closing the gap between fuel savings advantage as well. An EcoBoosted engine is one of those technologies.
I imagine that a torquey I4 EcoBoost in a Fusion will beat an Accord in smoothness and NVH, but will lag slightly in fuel economy, maybe by as much as 10mpg. But my guess is that an Accord Diesel will cost you much more, as it already costs more currently. You have to then weigh the advantages there.
