If Ford pulls the trigger first, GM will follow. Or vice-versa.

Well, the power ratings for the new Duramax 3.0 are better than the last diesel they put it 1500/2500 Suburbans.

The old Detroit 6.5 was 190-215hp and 430-440 ft lbs of torque.

If they think it will sell they might do it. No way to guess at this point though.

The most recent speculation I saw is that GM may put it in their next generation Burb/Yukon.

Seems like a very good application to me. Maybe not for towing duty but certainly for everyday use. The MPG is impressive.

Only reason I could see holding them back is most are mommy missle soccer mobiles and that doesn't mix real well with current emissions equipment. Well that and only Ram has had a baby diesel on the market long enough.
I think it would be a great option though.

A 25 MPG+ Sub/Tahoe would be great.

Will take an act of Congress to implement this.... Oh wait the current Congress doesn't do anything.

A Yukon or Suburban getting around 25 plus mpg would be well received, especially in the rural portions of the US. Certainly would not be ideal for everyone that is in the market for a Suburban, but at $2600 over the 5.3 it certainly is an affordable upgrade and wouldn't take long to get your money back in fuel savings.

Its Millions he won't have to spend on his campaign trail because most people can see how foolish that side of the isle is and won't vote for them.
