Default 2017 Duramax

Yeah I know, the '15's just came out but eh the frames and drivetrain are a carryover. I'm interested to find out if anyone here has any inside info about the '17 Silverado HD? Specifically the Duramax. I heard that GM will be making some big changes. What have you guys heard?

There was a member or 2 on here mentioning knowing an inside scoop. Hopefully they chime in.

I know this . . .
http://wardsauto.com/vehicles-amp-te...cummins-diesel

But this is the most important part of the article . . .
"General Motors also has diesels in its medium-duty trucks, but recently indicated it may dust off its long-shelved 4.5L turbodiesel V-8 for light-duty applications."

Bringing this back up from the dead.

Anyone know anything? Think GM will come out swinging with a surprise like they did when the Dmax was first introduced in '01?

What I find interesting is that even with a lower HP/TQ number, they still beat the Cummins and Powerstroke in most tests. I think the Dmax is underrated

The Duramax puts more power to the ground. The transmission is more intelligent, and knows what gear and TCC strategy to use for most effeicent operation. Duramax is still ahead of the curve imo. Hopefully you're right and they will release some pretty wicked stuff. But the DMAX is already King of the hill so

I can't confirm but I heard a no name shop building turbos out of his garage say that the 2017 was ditching Garrett and switching to a new BorgWarner turbo.

Personally i would wait, I like the look and they make good power and have quite a bit of potential. But as far as aftermarket things go i dont know it will definitley be a while before anything is available because there are a lot of changes coming with it.

From what I understand, GM is moving away from Bosch on all engine controllers, both gas and diesel.

So we could see the 2017 Duramax return to using a Delphi controller, which would be nice for EFILive because thats what Ross knows best (Delphi architecture).

Then again, it could also be Continental, Siemens, etc.
