W H Y ? does Europe get the 2.0L turbo diesel engine as standard in the Renegade? The Compass comes with this engine as standard!

The 2.4L Tigershark has its power & torque at high revs. The ZF 9 speed transaxle coupled to this Tigershark wants to change gear at low revs to save fuel. So software flashing will only make this combination more fuel hungry but better to drive.

In contrast the 2.0L turbo diesel has its power & torque at half the revs. A much better match to the ZF transaxle.

So come on FCA make the Europe standard a Special Edition in Australia, South Africa, Canada & USA.

FCA Australia say there is no demand for this.

What do you say?

I have had the diesel for nearly two years, and had diesels before that, and I don't recall ever pouring it on my hands or the body rather than in the tank.
Rather than being dirty, it is better for the environment than petrol which produces far more CO2.
