U.S. announces new automobile emission standards

Any thoughts on how this will impact trucks? Can they achieve these lofty goals on full sized trucks?

Interested in hearing from the techies out there..

New Emissions

I recently bought a 2010 Silverado Crew Cab 4X4 . The salesman said that the 2010 diesles built after May will have some kind of small tank containing a liquid for the emission system. This tank will have to be serviced at every oil change . Will add about $3,500 to cost of truck. He told me that all brands will have this system. Anybody heard about this ?

The HD trucks are exempt from corporate Fuel economy ratings. You will see a lot of changes in other vehicles though. Most people do not know that HHR, Equinox, SRX are classified as trucks to make the current current ratings. The EPA is changing the rules on what is considered a truck. If the vehicles listed above cannot be considered trucks in the future, GM is going to have some problems.

I think those vehicles already get pretty good mileage so I bet it wont affect them much

Don't get why people are so concerned about more fuel efficient cars.
Let's see its expected to add $400 to the price of a new car in 2012 and $970 by 2016, but on average people willsave $3000 over the life of the vehicle. Add to that it will decrease our dependence on oil and reduce emissions. I'm trying to find the down side here??

the downside is the implementation of more rules and regulations...your freedoms are disappearing very quickly and it needs to be stopped.

emissions on diesels etc. will destroy the diesel performance aftermarket...which i imagine is the whole reason your on this site. there are alot of repercussions that people dont take into account.

people so easily forget that we rather recently rebelled from the tyranny of excessive rule..the same kind of rule that is slowly grasping us again. "don't tread on me"...we need to bring it back.
