So I never had a diesel car/SUV/truck or anything.

Was wondering, if you guys have any favorite diesel vehicle in last 10-20 years?

I rather liked my 2008 Nissan Pathfinder Aventura Auto, it had a 2.5 Diesel engine and would only give 22mog, my brother in law has a 2009 and his does 22mpg aswell!

I do have a soft spot for the 3.0 tdv6 engine as fitted to some high end PSA vehicles and all JLR vehicles. 300bhp in current guise and loads of torque.

I would like a Land Rover Discovery or Range Rover with that engine and I would keep that for years.

The older Mechanical VE pumped Cummins engines are my favs ('89-'94)

I swapped one into my F350. (I hate Dodge chassis)

Diesel pusher Motorhome A big 7.4L turbo cat diesel and allison 6 speed makes the whole thing work the way it should.

Diesel Gensets are also amazing. They run forever and sip fuel compared to their archaic air cooled swilling gasoline brothers.

I dry camp a lot and power an entire campsite on my genset - everyone wants as close to 24x7 hot site as is possible and it ends up being me, I worked several sets of junction boxes and run 2-3 other trailers.

I have a soft spot for the 6.0, 6.4, and 6.7 Fords mostly because selling parts helps my paycheck. I also like the V10 Tourags, my friend's grandpa had one and from a standstill it would light the tires up through 3rd gear.

always wanted a powerstroke 7.3 in the OBS body style. I do like the OM617 Daimler engine as well. Have owned two of those.

The only diesel I've owned is my tractor. 2.2L, 4 cyl of 2600rpm 41 hp fury! In NA form diesels aren't really that impressive IMO.
I did like the feel of the turbo diesel jeep Liberty I test drove though. Not fast but it built speed well. The one I drove you could hear the engine bearings make different noises depending on if you were in boost or not, and then it was leaking coolant from somewhere when I brought it back to the dealer... If they weren't junk I'd like to have one though.

1988 John Deere 510c turbo backhoe with the Deere 4045T engine

1969 International 856 with the 6.7L 6 cyl IH diesel


All of them I spent a considerable amount of time operating, all of them have a unique therapeutic sound.
