Jalopnik is somewhat of the automotive pariah. Let's face it, we tend to like the quirky and weird over the mass produced and beige. This can lead to some problems at times however, just how Jalop is something? Today we pit together the mind bending torque of the diesel engine vs the face melting power of the V8. So what'll it be? Which is more Jalop? Both engines are awesome, I personally don't think of diesels quite the same as most Jalops do but I get that they can be great. But that good ole' V8 in whatever iteration you want, American high displacement, German precision, Japanese technical monsters or any of the other versions sound like a recipe for a great time to me.

Make the call Jalopnik!
