Could The 4.5L Duramax V8 Make A Comeback? | GM Authority
Blow-Off – Can the 4.5L Duramax LMK V-8 diesel make a comeback?
Yes unfortantly Wonder if they gonna wait for the 4.5L until the next Gen truck in 2019. then offer it with the 10 speedI believe that GM is keeping a eye on Ford , If Ford offers their diesel in the 150 in 2017 , GM will offer the 4.5 in med year 2017 or early 2018 .:gr_grin:
I have to believe at this point that it would be much cheaper to bring it back to life that it would be to design a new engine. They were so far along with development I can't see any way, other than emissions compliance problems, that the 4.5 won't happen if they come out with a half-ton diesel. With GM playing follow the leader behind Ford, they will have to come out with a Diesel 1/2 ton. Ford could put lipstick on a pig and people would love it. Their marketing office is so far ahead of the game than the other manufacturers that it's starting to look silly at what they can get away with. How many people did not by the Cummins because it is in a Nissan? Likewise with the Ecodiesel because it is in a Dodge? The Ecodiesel did bring dodge a little closer to the top but anyone that goes on an Ecodiesel forum POLL Catastrophic Failures would probably shy away from buying one if they didn't already have one. A diesel in an F-150, now that will outsell both the Nissan and the Dodge offering combined and possibly have Ford dropping some of their other engine options due to lake of sales with them.
It is obvious that Ford will come with the 3 -l V6 diesel from Dagenham early next year.I believe that GM is keeping a eye on Ford , If Ford offers their diesel in the 150 in 2017 , GM will offer the 4.5 in med year 2017 or early 2018 .:gr_grin:
GM needs to get off their butts and lead again
It might be as close as the Ford diesel. Mortimer has a source at this. "Ford's move raises one simple question: How will GM, the sleeping giant, respond? Will the 'new' 4.5-litre Duramax appear sooner rather than later? Another vee CGI diesel? The US rumour mill says the CGI Duramax will bow in summer 2018.OK GM Where is the half ton diesel FORD has one now too along with ram
