Chrysler would have been better off putting a 2.0 litre diesel into their minivans.

Fuel mileage isn't as much a concern with the diesel engine,why wouldn't you want the bigger van with that engine option?

The diesel makes a big difference in mileage. Euro minivans with a 2.0 litre diesel get 37 - 39 mpg highway. The US car manufacturers do not want the US public to have cars that get good gas mileage. Ford has a version of the focus in the UK that gets 80 mpg on the EU combined cycle, but Ford maintains there's no "market" for it in the US.
