    Since the EPA has burned VW and FCA over diesel emissions "non-compliance", we can see how manufacturers are being much more careful. Big $'s at stake for any miss-steps. Good to see that the article admits that this is one of the reasons for the certification delay.

    So Automative news posted that information yesterday. Just last week I stopped at a Chevy dealer. They were clueless on this delay. GM must not be notifying their dealers as this one already had a couple processed orders for the vehicle with this engine.

    Now maybe the Ram Ecodiesel, scheduled for a 2020 model year in just a couple months may be much delayed also. Seems that Ford has the only player in the 3.0L diesel engine in a 1500 this year.

    Trump should eviscerate the epa before it kills all diesel technology.

    I would say that the EPA would be the first part of the "swamp" that needs draining. Or my analogy would be flushing the toilet. Common sense never entered the picture. I've dealt with OSHA, EPA, DEP , etc over the years and I'd rather have dealt with the Mafia. Actually built boats for Mafia guys, they never tried to put me out of business, haha.

    Just thought that GM is partnered with the EPA from past government backing. They will get their approval. Too much at stake to turn away profits and labor jobs marketing the 3.0 diesels.

    That article has a good look at the engine, rather than a drawing seen in past publications. Sure would like to see a detailed picture of the Ecodiesel engine that is supposed to be coming in the 2020 models and some Jeeps.

    EPA delayed the launch of the baby duramax between 6 and 9 months. Not surprising that they have also now delayed the new 3l.
