    Seriously?

    As much as the EPA can be a pain in the rear, I like clean air and water. Do you remember the late 60's and 70's when our rivers literally flowed with garbage?

    The only thing Trump is good for is dividing this nation, which we may never recover from.

    I'd rather be divided than together with the left.

    Divided we fall. I prefer not to be associated with any party and save our great nation.

    I don't think GM does inform their dealers. I have a friend that owns a GM dealership, he had two half ton diesels on order. He still has not been told that they were delayed / cancelled.

    I prefer to keep politics out of these forums, because talking about it on the internet doesn't seem to accomplish anything.
    However the diesel game seems to be struggling to come to fruition for GM and FCA, looks like Ford has the only option at the moment.

    Agree with that. Ever try to reason with a drunk or the mentally ill?

    We are here to share information about the Ram 1500 Ecodiesel.

    That's because the Mafia has a code of honor. The government is more like a street gang. No honor code. Actually, that might be insulting to the street gangs.

    Up until this news came out, you could "build" a 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 on their website with the 3.0 Duramax. Suddenly now that option is gone. Coincidence?
    2015 Limited, 3.55 LSD, bought 1/2017 (36k miles). GDE tuned since 3/17, 73k miles and counting.

    No. GM had to pull the orders and tell the dealerships it will be a bit longer. EPA .....
