Toyota makes a great diesel, too. Too bad no diesel Tundra for the US, that would be awesome!

But Toyota diesels ain't installed in an American truck like the Isuzu engines... You would think Detroit Diesel could have came up with a motor on their own.

The biggest obstacle is all this emissions crap. DPFs, egrs, Diesel exhaust fluid? $8.00/gallon!
I'll stick with with my 96 6.5 any day!

The 6.2 and 6.5 diesel engines were designed by Detroit but were produced by GM.

Because the 6.2 and 6.5 were indirect injection and weren't "powerhouses" like the Cummins. They were meant to be good reliable engines that got good mpg and could haul.

The following is from Wikipedia:
LMK

This engine is not yet commercially launched although it was touted in the automobile press as one of the most important new engine concepts for small trucks and SUVs by finally delivering a capable diesel engine in a compact enough package. The engine project is current on indefinite hold by GM. General Motors planned a 4.5 litre 72-degree V8 for light-duty applications which would be built at GM's powertrain facility in Tonawanda, New York after 2009. Designed to fit in the same space as a Chevrolet Small-Block engine, it is expected to produce over 310 bhp (230 kW) and 520 lbft (705 Nm) of torque. It added urea injection, 29,000-psi (2,000 bar) piezo-electric common-rail fuel system over previous Duramax architecture.


It was initially targeted for the Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra and Hummer H2. Unlike previous Duramax engines, the 4.5 liter is planned to be designed and built entirely by GM, without assistance from Isuzu.


As of March 2009, a GM spokesperson stated the engine project has been put on an "indefinite hold" due to current economic conditions
