April 28, 2006

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. --- Since 1998, DaimlerChrysler has sold nearly 1.5 million flexible-fuel vehicles (FFVs) designed to run on E-85 fuel. Beginning with the 2008-model year, DaimlerChrysler will produce nearly 500,000 FFVs per year for sale in the United States.   Current vehicles capable of running on E85 fuel are the Dodge Stratus/Chrysler Sebring with the 2.7L engine; Dodge Caravan/Grand Caravan with the 3.3L engine; and Dodge Durango and Dodge Ram 1500 with the 4.7L engine. DaimlerChrysler is also promoting use of biodiesel. The Jeep Liberty CRD diesel-powered SUV is filled with B-5 fuel at the assembly plant in Toledo, Ohio, and B-5 is approved for use by all Jeep Liberty diesel customers. Beginning with the 2007-model year, the company will approve use of B-20 fuel in Dodge Ram Heavy-Duty diesel pickup trucks operated by government, military, and commercial fleets. The company is working with industry partners to establish a national standard that would enable all diesel vehicle owners to use B-20 fuel.
