    While that would be reasonable for a volume sedan, the devs seem to have something against diesels in non-German passenger cars...

    I wonder if the bastion will finally be the car to dethrone the moonhawk as the fastest vanilla game drag car

    that's what i've always found odd, the fact there's no official diesels in either generation of pessima, despite how ubiqitous midsize diesels are

    Maybe in continental Europe, but less so in the UK during the 90's and early 00's. We only started seeing a surge in diesel popularity in the later half of the 00's, when small diesel engines were marketed as highly efficient and greener than petrol.

    Actually there is only one german diesel engine in the game.
    The other is french and after that one american.
    It pretty balanced out but yeah:
    I could do with some more euro spec diesels since US ones are just mad displacement and torquedomes,
    I want a proper 2.0 Euro Diesel from the early to late 90s! :Do_O

    The new car almost looks like a mustang 4 door with a non oem hood.

    Two German Diesels, the 2.0 Inline-4 and the 3.0 Inline-6.
    Tbh, I'd like to see a German V8 Diesel with twin electric turbos! :cool:

    diesels were well and popular here back in the 90s, the like of the toyota carina,corolla and avensis are proof enough of that

    ETK 2.0 diesel
    ETK 3.0 diesel

    The Cherrier has two as well. I don't really count the LXT35 as a passenger car for this purpose.

    My point is more vehicles than not could use a diesel, yet only 3 do, and all 3 are modern Euro.

    Not to mention that diesels are mainly nonexistent outside of trucks and SUVs here in the US

    I really doubt we'll see a diesel engine in the Bastion. It doesn't make any sense considering the lack of a market for a diesel RWD sports sedan in the US (Where I'm imagining the Bastion would be mainly sold)

    They were also well and popular here in the US for only a few years in the early 2010s, and then dieselgate happened and no one seems to care about diesels anymore. The sedan could have a V6 diesel like the one found in the Jeep Wrangler, but that is probably unlikely, considering the trend the devs have towards non-German diesels.

    Yeah, Olds diesels were not good to put it lightly, and VW nailed the coffin shut. It was sad, I test drove a TDI Jetta before getting my first truck (which someone made me total :() and I really regret not buying it. Low-end torque was fantastic. I really wanted a diesel to be in the pessima remaster, cuz we don't have any vanilla diesel sedans. I hope they add that to the Bastion, it would make for a great car to drive :)
