    Diesel power is no longer exclusive to heavy-duty trucks.

    310hp+, 520ft-lbs+, DOHC, 32V

    It will likely be offered in GM's new fullsize car line as well.

    Diesels don't get bad gas mileage at all.

    Troof. In every other country you can get light trucks and SUVs with diesel motors. America has run away from diesel in anything but full size pickups for the most part, when really they've got serious potential. Maybe we'll get a full size pickup that can haul some serious weight and run a million miles.
