Jeep Needs Engines: Success of Liberty CRD Highlights Diesel Lack

Chrysler needs engines, dammit, and they need them yesterday. The company wants to build 10,000 Jeep Liberty CRDs this year, which means it's doubled its order for 2.8-liter, four-cylinder, common-rail, turbodiesel engines from supplier VM Motori, which is conveniently a DaimlerChrysler group member. Still, Chrysler is being cautious to make sure the increased demand isn't just out of curiosity, or drunk ordering, or something.
