Cutting Edge Concept Trucks

9-9-2015-ConceptTrucks

HD Trucks

GM’s DMAX production facility in Ohio saw a significant investment – this is the plant that builds the 6.6-liter V-8 engine; and the investment was made to prepare for the new Duramax engine.

The new Duramax engine will keep the 6.6-liter displacement, but may put out as much as 450 horsepower and 850 pound-feet of torque. The current Duramax engine puts out 397 horsepower and 765 pound-feet of torque.

As for diesel trucks, GM has not stated, as of mid July, whether the Allison automatic transmission would be upgraded from a six-speed to an eight-speed.

2016 Chevrolet and GMC 1500 Trucks

The 2016 model year update for the 1500 models will feature more aluminum; however, it won’t be as much as Ford uses. The new trucks may features an aluminum hood and front fenders to lighten them up a bit, but the body is expected to stay the same. The Silverado will see LED running lights, which the Sierra already features.

Currently, an eight-speed automatic transmission is offered with a 6.2-liter engine will now replace the six-speed transmission that now comes with the 5.3-liter EcoTec V-8 engines. It is expected that the 1500 trucks will get better gas mileage with the eight-speed transmission.
