There was a 6.6L big block offered in the past, the old 402, so its cool to see that capacity back as a gas engine from a historical perspective.

Although practical turbocharged engines will lose a little power at high altitude, it is far less than that of a naturally aspirated type.

And in the old days when a lot of naturally aspirated diesels were sold it was even worse with them. I remember a LONG time ago being behind a GM's 5.7L diesel powered El Dorado going up to Cave of the Winds in Colorado and it was like a slow motion scene from a Bond movie, a heavy smoke screen during the "chase" but definitely a slow motion chase.

I suspect a lot of folks who have been hanging on to their 8.1 V8 engines will be very interested in the 6.6 gas version. If I were in marketing for GM, I would have made sure the new HD DI gasoline engine design bumped the displacement up or down .1L or so because I can see the confusion brewing between the two engines with the salesperson/customer interface.

That's awesome... im so glad they finally increased the payload/GVWR of the 2500 trucks... loaded Denali 3000lbs capacity, looks like I'll be grabbing a 2500 this time around unless a 1 ton just happens to be there. Thanks for the picture!

I know this is a diesel site, and as I said people on the Ford DIESEL sites were showing interest in Fords new 7.3 gas. I was just curious if anyone on the duramax side was interested in GMs new gas engine.
