I believe the 6.9L will be for 2007+..still a V8Did A Dura Do Dat said:I read recently that GM is working on 6.4L and 6.9L Duramaxes. Apparently Toyota's new truck is near, and it's getting a diesel. Anyone have any more info on these at all? Can anyone tell whether these are V8s or will they finally make one or both I6's?
Ford already has a 3/4 Power Stroke (a 4.5L V6) in use for there Low Cab Foward trucks i wanna see that engine in the F-150!dmaxpwr said:I believe the 6.9L will be for 2007+..still a V8
they are also creating a V6 ...Isuzu design for the 1500HD I believe
should be interesting indeed
Well the 6.4 did come out but it's pretty clear it isn't laying down 4-500!I think it will be very interesting to see what will happen in the next few years. Ford is supposed to come out with a 6.4L Engine that will be putting out 4-500 Horsepower. The Dodge Cummins is rumored to be going through some major overhauls soon as well.
I knew Chrysler wouldn't drop the Cummins.GM plans to put a 6.4 in a couple of their upsize vans for 2007. They've scrubbed the idea of putting one in the burb, and it looks like Chrysler is going with the Mercedes diesel in 2007, dropping the Cummins
Long live the 5.9!I think that Gm is gonna stay with the 6.6L for a while as it's the king of the hill right now. I read in Peterson's 4Wheel Offroad that it's supposed to be 2/3 of a dmax in the 1500 with the new 6L90E(6speed auto). All of the 5.9L cummins engines in farm equipment have been replaced by the 6.7L ISB which I understand is a bored and stroked version(can you imagine that? a 5.9 has like a 4 inch bore and a 4.72inch stroke) I'm not sure about anything else but this baby is supposed to be able to pump out upper 300's lower 400HP easy. 800lb/ft of torque easy. So I think you dmax and powerjoke boys had better get your chips ready. Oh yea we're supposed to get a six speed auto that rivals the allison tranny in strength to(FINALLY).eelout eelout eelout
