Diesels a possibility on next line of SUVs

Recommended Posts

DETROIT -- General Motors is considering diesel engines as an option on some models of its next-generation SUVs, GM's top truck executive says.

Gary White, GM vice president and vehicle line executive for full-sized trucks, says GM is mulling alternative fuels for SUVs built on its GMT 900 architecture due next year.

"Diesels certainly would be considered a viable option sometime during the life cycle of this truck," White says. "We've got some pretty aggressive emission standards coming, and when you move those into the SUV category, the emissions are even more stringent. We've got to balance that and look at capacity and workload."

Really, I don't see why this hasn't been done already. It's such an obvious idea, only GM could overlook it. :rolleyes:

I think Duramax production capacity was an issue.

I think diesels would be great.

In fact, I'd like to see GMN actively expand it's diesel offering throughout it's line up of cars as well.



Agreed...personally, I'd rather have a diesel over a hybrid...or how about a hybrid diesel?
