My mistake, the new face lifted Master is a 2.3 (Kangoo diesel is a 1.5). I was thinking about the new Twin Turbo 1.6 in the mid size Trafic. Puts out 340Nm and claims 6.2l/100km combined cycle. I worry that such a small engine is going to be a bit overstressed long term.

[Edit] Actually I'd love to see that engine in a Kangoo

I used to have the same concern about those small high-speed turbodiesels in general, but I'd still like to try this one. Is its valvetrain chain-driven or belt-driven?

That Deuce with trailer (with trailer) gave me a laugh. It reminded me of all the times I'd see an Army 18 wheeler with two humvees on the flatbed. Or even better, with one humvee and its trailer on the flatbed.

It wasn't a case of "How do we get all of our humvees to Camp X for our two weeks?" It was "How do we come up with a somwhat legitimate mission for the Motor Transport unit this year?"

We rationalize more things before 9 AM than most people do all day.

The up armored hmmwv weight is at the edge of what the suspension can handle.
That frame and running gear was never meant to carry around all that weight, all the time.
The hmmwv has to last until its replacement is made, which is slated for 2020 to 2025.
Which really means it will most likely be some time around 2030.
(some years back the hmmwv replacement was supposed to come out in 2014)
So no more long peace time road trips at least for the heavy armored ones.

Or unless they're going to show a Humvee at a Humvee show. That would be the way to roll up. Kind of like a street rod on a COE ramp bed.

Is that a roll-back deck on the transporter? No trailer on this one either:

Its an all-terrain hooklift container truck with a flatbed container on it..

So yeah, its roll back, but it rolls back untill its all the way on the ground, then the truck can drive away.
