I'm hoping that the Cummins and Nissan deal will actually work out. If nissan can get a diesel in a 1/2 ton truck, they will hopefully push GM, Ford and Dodge to also work on getting a small diesel in their 1/2 ton models.

Someone has to be a pioneer in the US and "get the ball rolling".
you ever seen a 4bt cummins in a 1500?
