Yes, yes, yes. Quit talking and start building for cryin' out loud. Put the 4.5L D-Max anywhere you can fit an LSx gas engine. 4.5L D-Max Cadillac CTS Wagon anyone?!?!?!?! STS?? Colorado ?? 1500 trucks??
Yes to all of the above...

It would be great if they , GM or Ford would power a half ton truck or suv with a diesel. I wonder sometime that big oil would be against this , it could be a reality to see 30 mpg in one of these , maybe even 35 mpg. My F250 utiltiy truck will get 17 mpg , it is an 02. It is also loaded with tools , fuel tank etc. I also wonder if they fear warranty issues , i.e. dumbazz puts gas in tank. We had a guy put diesel in a gas gator the other day , because the gas tank was locked. He thought it would be OK just once. On topic , chrysyler with they're relationship with mitsubitshi could pull one of they're small I6 engines for a half ton. I think they make a 5 liter inline six , that would get phenomanol mileage in a pick up. Quiet also.

If chrysler put a small diesel in anything it will more likely be a FIAT not Mitsubishi.

Cummins already has a 5L+ v-8 diesel specifically for the ram 1500/2500

I'm sure if you looked hard enough you very well might find even 3 6.5's with 500K miles . . . . . .

I'm sure it all "could" have happened but ya see here is the thing the 7.3/6.4 & 5.9/6.7 have done it so often the majority of the planet has seen it done

The D-max is a great engine i didn't say it wasn't makes good power too, Until D-max's reporting 500K miles start becoming a routinely done thing i'll remain skeptical of its abilities to run with IHC & Cummins sorry . . . No malice intended . . .

Well, maybe GM (unlike IH & Ford) was smart enough to not install a light duty diesel engine in a medium-heavy truck. As an IH 33K dumptruck owner, I can flat out tell you a 7.3L DOES NOT belong in a 33K dump truck, either.
Heck, my DT-466 barely cuts it.

And since they never did install a 6.6L in a 33K truck also means we DON'T KNOW if it would make it to 500K miles....maybe it would.

I can tell you right now, I'd rather have my 360/650 DMAX in my 33K dumptruck than my DT466. At least I could climb a hill loaded without downshifting. Heck, might as well throw the allison trans in the dumptruck, too. Just like Ford & IH....

I don't know i heard the 7.3L was a fine diesel engine lots of supporters, tho i haven't owned one myself i did run a 7.8L Ford Diesel for a few years it done a fine job and so did the 8.3L Cummins i had too . . .

The DT466 with the 7spd did a fine job in the tow wrecker tho it was rolling 19.5's not 22.5's
