I think the Suburban diesel is a GREAT idea and I'll probably buy one, but I truthfully think the 6.6L DMAX belongs in it because the Suburban is so heavy(7-8,000lbs) and can tow a lot (over 12,000lbs). It really needs 350+ HP, not a smaller diesel. It would be great if you could get either one. Base engine 4.5L, optional 6.6L. :Thumbup:

I think the 4.5L DMAX would be great in the Tahoe, 1/2 ton pickup etc.

I'm just glad the diesel is making a comeback in 1/2 tons & full size SUV's, so maybe I'll quit complaining.

You may just see that "base, optional" deal in the 2500 Burbs....

I think GM may be planning this engine as an option in all their V8-powered cars/trucks if it turns out as good as they hope.

What intrigues me the most is the way GM "switched" the intake and exhaust around on the heads. The intakes are on the bottom now, the exhaust flows right into the turbo on the top. So simple and obvious, yet never thought of before.

Link didnt work for me but from reading the other posts it sounds AWSOME.. I know PSD have v-6 psd's I think... now a 4.5 dmax thats AWSOME!...

how come with the 6.5's they but them in 1500's but not the D-max?

I saw in DP a d-max in a burban..? they should have hjust made thme like that like in 94-98 :shrug: they also need to bring back the tahoe sport.. :Thumbup:

i doubt the power numbers are set this far from production, it's probably closer than i think but they could keep changing it all the way up until they begin advertising it, and i haven't seen any... on a better note, i'd like it, i love my z71, but i'd kill for a diesel, now if i could swap in a manual and a solid axle....

You guys have seen this right?



Note the HD after Suburban and the Duramax badge on the hood.

now see something like that needs the d-max, if you have a 3/4 tonner you go with the 3/4 ton engine, but in the half tons i can see where the 6.6 would be considered too much by most people (myself excluded) and the 4.5 would make much more sense, if i could get a stock truck that weighed 6grand with the 6.6 d-max i'd be good
