Just another site referencing the rumor spread by GM Authority. GM has made no official announcements and the top of the page you linked it literally says "Rumor of the week." Until GM actually comes out and says the diesel option is no more it's just speculation with no facts to back it up.

Let’s hope it is just a rumor.

This is for north america market only. In South America the Chevy S10 2.8 Duramax Diesel (South american Colorado / Canyon) Is the number one best selling small pick up in south america. First time ever the Toyota Hilux is not number one. Chevrolet will continue to produce the 2.8 duramax diesel Chevy S10 in the Argentina Plant with no plans to stop production. Interesting the south american version of the 2.8 Duramax does not have the DEF fluid. Also the factory ECU tune is 200 HP and 385 FP torque. A mild stage 2 ecu reflash the S10 produces 250 HP and 480 FP torque. A fully deleted S10 with 3 inch exhaust, high flow intake and a stage 3 Rally remap makes 295 HP and 550 FP torque. So far no reliabability issues on the south american model. I have the 2021 S10 High Country model only has 12,000 miles, still all stock. Going to wait a bit to do the remap. No vehicle inspection or emissions in central and south America. A large percentage of owners are running stage 2 or 3 remaps.

The South American 2.8 is the XLD28, not the LWN. The LWN also is not only for North America but is used in many global markets, the XLD28 and LWN are also manufactured in different plants.

I assume the south American version more robust? The chevy s10 blogs in brasil have no discussions about engine failures .

Your guess is as good as mine, I haven't seen anything outlying the differences between the two outside of the HP/torque numbers and emissions equipment.

The 2022 window stickers show country of origin for the engine as Brazil instead of Thailand.
That may be, but that doesn't explain what all the differences are between the LWN and XLD28.

Thai plant sold many moons ago. Word on the web is one engine option only, no v6, no 2.8 babymax. Caddy 4 banger turbo only choice. -Oak

GM also stated after the "no more 2.8" rumor started that they secured a deal to have 2.8s supplied for the foreseeable future. GM Authority has been the only source of these rumors, the only official statement from GM since "GM Authority" started the rumor was that GM will have 2.8s available for a while, so still nothing official stating the 2.8 is going away.
