Yeah, it would make too much sense to put in a fuel efficient engine in what are the biggest gas hogs in the Honda line-up and try to boost sales of models that are due for or have been redesigned to make them sell well enough to pay for themselves.

I believe the Acura TSX is supposed to get the diesel engine first with the i-DTEC engine early calendar year 2009.

But the important turbodiesel engine is the new V-6 now in development, which will likely make it to the Ridgeline truck, Pilot SUV and probably MDX SUV within a few years. Hopefully, Honda will use a new, six-speed automatic when the V-6 turbodiesel arrives for better fuel economy! :-)

I'd just like to see a diesel CR-V. As soon as they offer one of those here in the US I will trade in my 2003 CR-V IMMEDIATELY. I love the G3 CR-V but I want that diesel bad...

Me too. My current car lease is due to expire in a few months, and I'm on a waiting list for a Diesel Jetta Wagon. I really don't want to go there, but........hurry up Honda.
