does anyone know how long the ecodiesel has been in production maybe under another name or designation maybe in Europe or in another vehicle ..Just trying to find a little more "in use" history if there is any....
There isn't any "History" on it. Other than the trucks built as pre-production for testing. Basically... from that point... there was some "Pre-spec" trucks built to get the assembly process set. Then, they opened orders on Feb 7th. Some dealers got the pre-specs to sell... and there have been a batch of orders make it out. But that's it.
People like me ordered a little later in Feb, and I'm still waiting for my truck to arrive.
If you dig around... you will see the 3.0L VM engine has been used since 2011 in other parts of the world. AND, the ZF 8 speed trans has also been used for a few years. (in cars such as the 7 series BMW's)
