Why would GM ditch Duramax for a MAN diesel when it's proven to be successful?

No idea. Maybe it can't meet future emissions requirements is the only reasoning I can think of, caught me off guard for sure when he dropped that dime...

That makes absolutely no sense they just got done investing tons of money into the development of that motor and then retooling several factories to produce said motor
But.... crazier things have happed

I highly doubt itís true. People have been predicting the death of the Duramax since 2002. Lol. Everyone loves to act like they know something.... 🤪

Exactly, just think of all of the "predictions" for the current L5P. I can't recall anyone getting the HP and torque numbers right. People where saying 8 speed, etc. Just about everything was wrong.

The only ones right weren't saying anything until release

Yeah I highly doubt that they will get rid of the Duramax, I think it has been pretty successful for them. If its not broke dont fix it.

I really wish they would just change a few of the features to at least catch up with ford. I dont really know how gm let themselves get so far behind. Wish they would spend less time trying to jump ahead on frames and body lines and look at the little things that sell these trucks. I appreciate the L5P as much as the next guy, but a few spare aux switches, maybe usable cargo light, DEF filler in better spot. Even the headlight bulbs in the silverados are lacking for a 60k$ truck. I could bitch all day i guess, but in the end, im so die hard gm that ill keep buying them...hell keep the truck exactly how it is in 2020, just catch up the interiors would be cool with me.

oh...ya round fender wells....cause you know...tires are round..

GM seem to be doing just fine, so I think they might know their market better then you. IE die hards that just keep buying them like you...

Posts like this make my jaw drop and think, seriously??!!??!!

So youíre saying youíd rather have GM invest their time and money in a better bed light, more switches and a ball tickler built into the seat than better frames and fresh body styles??? Personally, Iíll gladly take the better frame and fresh body style that I canít improve on my own, and then spend an afternoon installing some led bed lights and throw some halo led switches into the dash and call it Good.

I know this forum caters more to the performance guys, but letís face it, these are trucks. Trucks are made to tow, haul, get work done, and get me a paycheck, so if I have to spend a few hours installing some switches and lights to get thousands of hours of R&D and testing of new frames that will tow and haul better and safer, well thatís a trade off Iíll take any day of the week.

oh pick your jaw up off the foor, for f*** sake. I dont like throwing switches and swapping halo's into a brand new truck. Im simply saying i shouldnt have to. Ive owned 6 duramaxes and ive had to throw in switches and try different bulbs, and drill holes, and bla bla bla bla to them all. It would pain me to drill into the dash of a truck that costs this much. Im just pointing out that the "competition" has built in aux switches etc, etc, etc. Ill drive a GM till i die, but i wish they would catch up.

I agree. A nice set of aux switches all with 30amp capable supply would be a great addition. But nice ones, not the big ugly ones Ford has. As far as headlights go I think the current ones are fine.

And round fenders with more room front to rear ffs.

The thing is you both wrong. We buy GMs because we feel they are the best, or at least I did. The R&D of the things that make these work trucks better is critical to stay competitive. But there's no damn reason they shouldn't be investing into the Creature Comforts of these trucks. The truck Market is huge right now with low fuel prices. This Market doesn't just include our beloved "work" trucks. Trucks are trucks most of the gadgets go across all of the platforms and GM is lacking across the board. I see Roushes, King Ranch, Platinum Editions, and Raptors all the time. But where's GM's response? Dealers full of fully loaded trucks and SUVs cuz that's what most people are buying. Dealers with 20 trucks with interior exterior accents, lift kits, auxiliary lighting, and wheels on them. They can put the money into those trucks before even selling them because they know they'll sell. Nobody is forcing you to buy a fully loaded truck if you want to work truck. But GM is forcing people to go aftermarket or to other brands to get the luxury items they want in their vehicles.
