    Yep, inline 6 making 480 ft lbs of torque. About time.

    IMO, since I used to own one, that V8 Duramax engine would be better. But that is just me.

    I agree, but I've been wanting a diesel(doesn't matter if it's an inline 6) in a suburban size SUV since the Excursions stopped being produced. Can't wait to test drive one.

    I get it and understand. I am sure the inline 6 will perform great with all the improvements in design that has to have taken place since I owned my 2003 pickup with the V8 engine.


    Does it say whether the trans mated to it will be an Allison?

    That's to bad because that Allison trans was the bomb when I towed with it. Took a lickin' and kept on tickin'.

    The Allison isn't a 10 speed?

    At the time I owned mine it was not but may be now. I haven't kept track of the Allison trans since I got rid of my truck way back when.

    The inline 6 diesel will have the same 10-speed transmission as the 5.3 and 6.2. The Duramax also has a 10-speed which has been branded an Allison though it too is a GM creation. This is my understanding of what has been read anyway.
