    GM might have the best 1/2 ton Diesel engine.

    Still waiting on numbers but the new 3.0 diesel by GM is a inline 6. I have had a lot of diesels (7.3, 6.0, LB7, 12 valve.) I vowed I would never own a V diesel again. This new engine intrigues me. No details as of yet.


    Other than its a Duramax engine developed in house and its an inline 6.

    The rumor was that ram had an in-line 6 gtdi for the new 2019 but then they just came back with the same tired out hemi.

    I just hope ford releases the 7.0 v8 in the f150. Or, better yet, shoehorns it into some version of the ranger.

    I've heard the same rumor about the 3.0L I6 with a twin scroll turbo based off of the Hurricane 4 engine. Maybe for 2020 or 2021?

    How well would a longer engine like that fit in the engine bay of the F150?

    Yup. In its day the 300 was a bit of a beast as is. Good motor for sure.

    It'd be a dream come true to have today's performance combined with the lifespan of that I6 300.

    I just don't think it's possible.
    So much complexity, regardless of the reason.
