        I definitely woulda put one of these in a 69 Camaro. If they would of asked me what to do with MY bail out dollars this would of been my vote.

          Spidey may be right, there's a lot of new tech in that engine, plus the emissions hassles of diesels in this country (big oil don't like those efficient, economical diesels). Although with the success of the Duramax, you'd think there's some good knowledge going into this engine that might make it less of a warranty nightmare.

          For damn sure I wouldn't be interested in it if it were a Navistar... but the baby d-max would seem to have a lot of potential.

              I don't understand why diesel prices are so high.....it's almost the last cut in a barrell. About 1 cut above 3-in1 oil.....

                  It's because diesel now has to be ultra low sulfur now. Lots more refining than it used to be. Thank the green police.
