Actually, the new V10 will NOT have DOD as an option.Originally posted by 91z4me@Mar 1 2004, 08:33 PM
GM did research a v10 GenIII when the engines first came out and decided against it because of packaging and also fuel economy. I think now DOD has changed that. By shutting off two or four of the cylinders you can make it get the same gas mileage as an 8 or a 6. The Escalade will probably be the first to receive the XV8 followed by the HD silverado and also Sierra. I would also suspect the H2 will be looked at to launch the 10s.
