Ford had better hurry with those Diesels or DCX will get there first!

It seems that Cummins is going to start building light duty Diesels for one of Ford's competitors, most likely Chrysler, for their pickups and SUVs. So Ford needs to get off the stick and bring the new V8 Diesel from Europe over here, not just in Range Rovers and Jaguars, but Explorers, Expeditions and F150s, and they better be quick about it!

I bet it will be Toyota or Nissan, not Chrysler. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see the Cummins phased out of the Ram and replaced with a Mercedes diesel. Ford will beat GM, DCX and everybody else with their PSA diesel that will be in the next F150 and probably the Expedition, Explorer, Ranger replacement, etc. Plus Ford will be able to offer Hydraulic Launch Assist and eventually a full Hydraulic Hybrid.
