This is not the Benz engine....although these too had there share of problems..
Fiat has been making commercially available common rail turbo Diesel engines since 1997. But, they had been working on this stuff in the 90s before selling it to Bosch. So, I think they know what they are doing even if some of their engines have had issues here in the States.
I have been waiting for a, light-duty, Diesel-powered, pick-up truck for years. It looks like it's finally here.

Yea, personally i think they'll last longer than the highly tuned F150 ecoboost. Those things are plagued with problems. Any little seal, gasket, or sensor will cause a gremlin in those engines.

Interesting.

I hope diesel trickles down to smaller trucks. This means you, Toyota.
