    That is pretty remarkable but it seems they are placing emphasis on fuel efficiency.

    Unfortunately that seems to be the case. Then again, should be good for diesel enthusiasts, as finally we are getting some BMW/Merc diesels over here. Don't know what took so long, Americans are so weird with embracing diesels yet they like them in their trucks.

    Yeah, embrace the hybrid (dumb) when the diesel is the better way to go. People don't do research, they listen to market propaganda, and wonder why they're spending so much.

    Hybrids are trendy and people don't know anything about anything.
