    I heard something along the same lines too. A diesel for the half tons
    I think it their contribution to the environment. I'll see if I can find a link to the article.

    Sorry I have to use the 2 C words in this reply.
    Chrysler and Cummings are continuing their research in developing a light duty diesel.

    GM is researching their Bio-diesel and alternative fuels for their heavy duty trucks.

    I have links to the verticals. PM me for copies.

    There was a 4.5 liter Duramax in the final stages of development that was moved to the back burner when GM began its downward spiral. There were actually prototypes produced and tested. I would hope that this engine will become available in the next couple of years.

    There was talk of a lot of the closed dealerships reopening soon. This 4.3L Dmax was so close to production, it would be foolish to just let it go away.

    I think a little 4.5L Duramax would be a great idea and a lot of fun to play with 310 hp and over 500 ft lbs
