Curious about discussions of new diesel (3.0) so went to the Chevy website to build a new vehicle. The Z71 only has a single engine option now. Diesel still seems to be available for ZR2 or LT. Curious.

The diesel is there in the 4x4 setup (late availability), not the 2x4 setup. I haven't looked around enough, but I wonder if they are doing it just like GMC Canyon AT4?

Good to hear. IMO, the Z71 4 * 4 diesel offers a great combo of a good handling, good rough roading/bad weather vehicle with a low ratio of empty weight weight to GCVW.

In 5 years, if the 3.0 looks to have great reliability, great. I was a semi early 2.8 adopter, but I'll let others do the honors with the aluminum 3.0...

I predict the 3.0 will be very lucrative for service writers.
