Just heard on the radio today the glk250 diesel SUV's are available. It means a new engine has been approved for the North American market, and the displacement is exactly what the European 4cyl sprinter van diesels are. Really hoping its the one rated at 160bhp and 360Nm torque. With the 7spd auto it will be really frugal!!

I know it's less than the 2010+ v6 diesels, but its the same power ratings as the 2007-2009 models, except with a 7spd transmission!! Can't wait to place the order, my 2007 is rusting away slowly...

Will the engine specs change with North American emissions installed?

Most definitely, the highest hp sprinter in Europe with that displacement engine has 160hp and approx 265lb-ft of torque.
