The C4500 Series carries a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of 16,000 pounds, and the C5500 is available in 18,000- and 19,500-pound GVWRs.

available Duramax 6600 6.6L turbodiesel V8 and Vortec 8100 8.1L gasoline V8 engines drive the TopKick C4500 and C5500 Series trucks

Hmmm

TOPKICK C6500/ C7500 / C8500 OFFER:

Duramax 7800

Vortec 8100

Caterpillar 3126E

Hmmm Not mention of the 6.6 over 19.5K-LB GVWR . . .

Fair enough Mike, but what truck is running the 6.4, 7.3, 5.9, 6.7?? and doing it reliably for 400,000miles? i can see the dt466 but its built like a tank compared to the cummins and powerstroke.....

Besides this thread is about a light duty diesel named the 4.5L duramax, which will never end up in a 33000lb GVWR truck, it was never built to do so, and neither was the 6.6 for that matter, just as the 5.9L was never designed to be in a pickup, but someone at dodge had enough fore-sight to make a contract with Cummins before someone else did

You can say whatever you want about the 6.6L, in the end i know what i have, and if the Cummins was that great of a motor i would have bought another, but I cant see me trading this truck for one any time soon, ive never heard of someone swapping a Cummins into a GM in place of a Duramax......

Good information Mike, but some is missing. I have personnaly driven C6500 series trucks with 454 Gas engines in them, and C6500 series trucks with Duramax's in them. You are right about the weights though. The C6500 is just under 26K.

Back on topic, I really cant wait for them to offer a diesel Suburban again.

Yes a 4.5L V-8 diesel in a Camaro would be cool, I just don't think it would selected much as the Gas V-8 will accelerate faster . . . but i think it would make a nice option for the V-6 type of crowd who wanna look cool and save fuel . . .

olus a 300K mile Maro would neat to have

With a variable geometry turbo I think that off the line throttle response would be just about as good as a gasser, with a lot morw torque and way better mileage, I mean a 3500lb car with 350hp and 650tq would be wild

Would of been nice if GM had this in the third Gen F bodys fricken 2.73 n 3.08 gears standard with optional 3.23 n 3.42 gears . . . The mustang had 3.55s n 3.73s and could be had with 4.10s . . .
