    The full-size pickup is the new big family sedan, and it has been for a few years now. And you could probably call the full-size SUV the new family wagon. But can the new family sedan do everything that the old family sedan could? I took the GMC Sierra 1500 AT4 Duramax on vacation to find out...

    Although the 2021 will have access to a Diesel engine, the off-road-ready AT4 trim won't be available with it. The reason, according to GM Authority, which spoke to unnamed sources, is the AT4's special front fascia. The lower section is cut off higher than on regular trims to allow for a...

    The base price for the Cadillac Escalade diesel will reportedly be identical to the base price of the gas Escalade, according to a report from GM Authority. That means that whether your Escalade comes with a V8 or a 3.0-liter straight six diesel, it will start at $76,195, if the report-which...

    The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 has received some minor enhancements for 2020. Following its complete overhaul last year, the truck now offers improved towing capability and the broader availability of its alpha-dog 6.2-liter engine. The smaller 5.3-liter V8 with Dynamic Fuel Management is now...

    Just as quickly as small diesel engines in vehicles in North America saw a resurgence, they appear to be going away. Earlier this week we shared the tragic news that Ford wouldn't be putting the diesel engine in the Transit Connect. Today we're sad to report that the Chevrolet Equinox diesel is...

    If we were to have told you a few short years ago that The General would soon be producing mass copies of a rear-drive vehicle powered by a turbocharged straight six diesel, you'd have had us committed to the nearest madhouse. After all, such a bumf reads like sport European sedan from the...

    The inline six-cylinder diesel that's set to appear in the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500s is getting a model year's delay, according to a new report.

    GMC's new-for-2019 Sierra 1500 took a less controversial styling route than its Chevy Silverado sibling while retaining the numerous upgrades foisted upon the next-generation pickup twins. For 2020, GMC tweaked the light-duty Sierra's offerings just a bit, hoping to lure more finicky buyers into...

    I sheepishly handed the keys over with an apology. Life conspired to keep me from the car wash before the truck was due to go back, and as you'll see in the photos below, I was not bashful about making this truck properly dirty. "Not a problem. Trucks are supposed to get dirty," the friendly...

    Our pals over at AutoGuide have assembled a list of the some of the best diesel vehicles available for sale today and GM owns a disproportionate number of spots on the list.

    While diesel may be deader than disco in the passenger car segment, it is rolling plenty of coal in the half-ton pickup truck class. Once the domain of heavy duty rigs, oil burners are now snaking their way under the hoods of consumer-grade trucks. We've known for a spell the output of Ford's...

    Every diesel truck owner wants an engine brake on their rig. That is if they don't already have one. They help slow your pickup without cooking the brakes. But how do they work? And why don't pickup brakes make that horrible brapping noise that the ones on a big rig do? Lift off the gas in a...

    It's looking increasingly like the compression ignition engine won't get an opportunity to redeem itself at Cadillac. After making diesel a dirty word in the early 1980s with the help of Oldsmobile's cantankerous, oil-burning 5.7-liter V8, GM's luxury arm dived back into diesel development...

    Until an automaker comes along with something better, your cheapest bet for highway fuel economy in a pickup is the Duramax diesel-powered Chevrolet Colorado and its GMC Canyon twin. The full-size Ford F-150 with 3.0-liter diesel V6 matches it in economy, but not price. Boasting a 30 mpg EPA...

    General Motors is trying to restart diesel, and the plan begins in the home of Fiat. GM Powertrain Torino is the facility that develops most of the automaker's new diesel powertrains. Like the name says, the facility is located in Turin, better known as the home of Fiat. It's one of the only GM...

    Even though General Motors gleefully offloaded its European division to the French, it still maintains a slight presence in the region. A powertrain engineering center in Turin, Italy remains in the GM fold, which gave the automaker an opportunity to dish on a much-maligned propulsion source...
