I agree on the packaging with diesels; they should be available in basic trims for buyers who want to pinch pennies on purchase price (of the basic vehicle) as well as operating costs. Diesels are not popular in the "luxury" division where people have money to buy Hemi V8's and gasoline for V8's in high end Grand Cherokees.

As for FCA, they are planning to eliminate all diesel engines in cars worldwide by 2022, so this signals a reduction in diesels in light duty vehicles even in markets where they are traditionally in the mainstream. Having been to Europe and seeing soot-covered historic buildings, diesel emissions are a problem worldwide.

Ford has offered many engine choices in vehicles that sell in high numbers, but it is taking so doggone long to get an existing vehicle (the world Ranger) to market that they are probably limiting the engine choice just to get the thing into showrooms and onto the road. And another year after that for the Bronco(???) We shall see what the engine options are in the long term. I believe we will see gas-electric hybrids and fully electric vehicles in greater numbers than diesel vehicles in the long haul.

Yes yes to all of this.
