1996 Was 20 Years Ago! Is Your Diesel Truck A Survivor?

Do you own a 1996 or earlier diesel? If you do, you are one of the lucky 10%.  The major players of the light duty diesel market in the mid 90’s were of coarse Ford, Dodge, and GM.   20 years later we have only a select few remaining on the road.  It seems that the Ford 7.3 and the Dodge 5.9 Cummins are most common, but the GM 6.2 and 6.5 are hanging in there.

6.2 & 6.5 GM 1500-2500-3500 VANS, TRUCKS, HUMMER H1, BLAZER, SUBURBAN

6.9 & 7.3 Ford 250-350 VANS, TRUCKS, AMBULANCE, BRONCO(canada+mexico)

5.9 Dodge-2500-3500 TRUCKS

GM deserves the most credit for experimentation with diesel engines in half tons and multiple body designs.


What do you think of the old vs the new?
