There are some fresh shiny new spy shots over at Left Lane News – of the 2010 GMC Sierra 2500. You’d probably think that no one cares about such a truck in the days of $4+ per gallon gasoline. And you would be right! Even GM doesn’t really care -there’s no camo at all on this truck. Under the hood of this truck is the refreshed 6.6 liter Duramax diesel V8. Reportedly, this engine will be packing in excess of 700 lb-ft of torque.
Normally I’d be drooling and in a bit of a daze after seeing that number. Instead, I can’t help but wonder how prodigiously it gulps fuel. Sure, it’s a diesel, but that’s one big-ass engine, and a whole lot of power. Plus diesel is scaring five bucks a gallon. Sorry to say it, but this one makes me cringe instead. Wrong time guys, wrong time.
