They should have done a Duramax Suburban all the way back at the 2001 Duramax Heavy Duty launch.

Its the Government and how much tax money is made off gasoline. Those diesel engines are good enough for Europe, with their stronger enviro laws...but they arent good enough for the USA. Makes you wonder....

Surely they could adjust fuel tax structure to get the same revenue out of less fuel consumed...

It's a combo of the oil & gas industry, EPA, historical buyer trends and momentum.

This really isn't a new thing. The manufactures have always shorted the americans on diesels. Other country's have mostly diesels.Few gassers. Just plain sucks.

Amen. The big three is always talking about the cost. While it would be stiff at first once production was up the cost difference is not too bad.

For example, if you take a look at Mazda's UK site the diesel option for a Mazda5 is only about $2k US. Small van + diesel + 5speed = Winner.

...............Just consider for a minute , IF ALL mfgers in the USA offered an extensive line of diesels in all classes of cars and light trucks , getting 30 too say 60 mpg that was far and away , Better , than gas engines , Hybraids and Electric cars ! Doesn't take a genius too see how badly the sales of Hybraids and electric(s) would fall on their face . , ckfan
