"Diesel Power" magazine reports that an Italian-made 2.8 liter V-6 diesel will be marketed in Europe with the new '08 CTS. Usually, this produces a yawn reaction, but this diesel may be something to consider. The article says it will produce about 250 hp. Torque is a big number approaching 400 ft. lb., which is what the LS2 V-8 produces.
CTS has not sold well in Europe, so I expect production numbers will be low.

I wish they would sell them in the US, because gas prices are so much better on the diesel end.

I just got back from spending 2 weeks in Europe...they run everything on diesel. Lucky bastards. Every car you can imagine in the US, with a diesel engine. It's different thats for sure. My wife had a diesel beetle once and it got ~50 mpg.
