I posted about the upcoming Dodge Ram 1500 3.0l diesel, manufactured by VM Motori. Now, nothing has been released yet as far as i know related to GM, but the article i read about the engine stated that GM may also be using a version of the same engine in their line of light duty trucks. If they do, the speculation is that they are planning to use it in select lines of 1/2 ton, light duty pickups and SUVs, including the 1500 series, tahoe and possibly suburban. The article i read stated that GM owns a stake in the company that produces the engine, VM Motori, and that GM has expressed possible interest in the engine.
G.M. truck owners, come on board! I'd like to dialogue with owners and shops involved with the S/T trucks and Sierra/Silverado models, hear about your enthusiasm for the 4x4 pickups, Suburban and Blazer/Jimmy or Yukon. Share your modifications, upgrades, 6.2L, 6.5L and Duramax diesel experiences, LS performance gains—whatever! I worked as a G.M.C. truck dealership line tech in the '80s and followed the transition of these models. My Chevrolet & GMC Light Truck Owner's Bible (Bentley Publishers) drew from that experience...I can talk diesel, gas, LS engines, modifications, chassis dynamics, axle and powertrain rebuilding. (Late G.M. owners, see my popular AAM 11.5" axle step-by-step article and the 9.25" axle build in HD video at the magazine.) I'm here for troubleshooting and diagnostics discussion, too! Join the forums, post your topics, and let's talk! We'll get others on board and find a sensible alternative to piddling your time away at Facebook and Twitter! Moses
The emergence of late model 4x4s with IFS began with the S/T trucks and culminated in the introduction of 1987 Silverado and Sierra trucks with IFS. I worked closely with Chevrolet and GMC trucks during the 1987 to late '90s era, ultimately having great respect for these S/T and K-model trucks. The popularity of modern G.M. truck technology is indisputable: If you add GMC to Chevrolet figures, G.M. truck sales have often outweighed Ford F-series and others. This forum is a community of enthusiasts who value G.M. technology, design and ruggedness, including the 6.5L and Duramax diesels, the small- and big-block pushrod V-8s, Vortec V-6s and contemporary LS engine platforms.
