Is the Mercedes Blue TEC a Future Car?

It's not usual for me to show case a vehicle that does not use alternative fuels, but I found the Mercedes Blue TEC to be interesting enough to write about.

Today's Americans are almost squeamish if you mention buying a SUV to them. In steps Mercedes and produces a diesel powered SUV. At first glance there is nothing special about this vehicle, yet we all know what diesel engines can be transformed into. If one takes this into account then the Mercedes Blue TEC really can use biofuels or liquid coal. If this is the case, then Mercedes has put the SUV back into play for the American consumer. Mercedes deserves a big Kudos for this.
