I also beleive the 6.6L is more expensive to make then the 6.5/6.2 which would drive the price way up.

They could have done a lot of diesel engines, but each one is a lot of money to design, develop, etc...

I agree though, a 4 Cylinder diesel Colorado/Canyon would be awesome!

The Isuzu 1.8 was in the Chevette and Luv and 2.2 was in the S-10 IIRC. GM dumped $2B or so into the plant in Thailand to make the new 4 cylinder Diesel. I don't remember the specifics but it was 2-ish liter. I'm sure it will be going into cars, much like the 2.9L VM slated to hit the Caddies.

There 2.5L iron duke Gasser ran well, lasted long time, and towed a decent load. . .
