Does anyone know if the diesel engine fitted to sprinters will meet the 2010 north american emissions standards?

This is an excellent question..But highly political, as to the US economy.
The answer is yes for Euro 5 2010 through to 2015 Euro 6
However the engines are the new 4 cylinder DiesOtto engines 30 percent more fuel efficient and higher HP which incidentally exceeds the base US de-tuned V6's Hp.
How this will be managed in the N/American sector is beyond my thoughts as to A Fuel standards and B actually being able to get a local refinery to manufacture the diesel fuels in the US.
My thoughts are the Diesel will have to be imported from Singapore refinery's or convert the ethanol plants to produce a synthetic diesel, of which this advanced engine is designed to run on alternative synthetic Diesels.
Damlier Chrysler is not related to Chrysler US Cerberus, they blew it.
