For as long as I have been a car guy, I remember people begging automakers for a diesel-powered midsize pickup.
We watched the likes of the diesel Toyota Hilux power through Europe and trudge through the Arctic and then looked at our comparatively lame gas-powered Tacoma trucks in disgust. We lusted after diesels here for years, and finally, an unlikely carmaker has delivered.
It wasn’t Toyota, as we might have expected, but General Motors. And that was after, mind you, the company cancelled and then brought back its midsize trucks.
Could this be the vehicle that saves diesel’s name here?
