GM has announced that it will bring the popular Duramax diesel currently offered as an option on its Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickups to its lineup of cargo and passenger vans
The 2.8-liter Duramax will be offered on the 2017 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans. GM says production of these 2.8L models will begin in the first quarter of 2017.
The engine will be offered with an eight-speed transmission and will be available on long and short wheel base and 2500 and 3500 models.
GM says this is the first small diesel to be offered on a traditional, body on frame, full size van. The option is directed at those van customers looking for increased fuel economy.
