Chrysler reconsidering 1/2 ton diesel.

Chrysler is reconsidering a 5.0l diesel for their 1/2 ton and possibly heavy duty trucks.

If they put a diesel in a half ton, they will have to beef up the suspension and drive train, so what would be the difference in this and a normal 3/4 ton then? It is a good idea, as long as they dont try selling it for $40K or more!!! I dont know why more american cars are not diesel in the first place, almost all the cars in other countries are 100% diesel, yet we stick with the gas models? Can anyone answer that? Or is it just another case of americans being stupid? I would buy a 1/2 ton diesel as long as it was fairly cheap compared to a 3/4 ton, and it was beefy enough to handle heavy towing.
