Holy Crap, a twin turbo V8 Diesel from Ford???

What would you say to 260 hp and 480 lb ft of torque? That's what the new 3.6 L Twin Turbo Diesel V8 from Ford will be putting out. But all you Powerstroke guys, don't hold your breath, it doesn't look like you'll get it. This V8 is based on the 2.7L V6 that Ford developed with PSA (Peugeot and Citreon) for use in their European models.
So rumors are that you could see it in Europe under the hoods of select Range Rovers.
And no doubt in top of the range Jaguars.
But wouldn't it be great to see it in the US under the hood of something like this? Now word about it coming to US in anything, but one can dream can't one?
