https://www.carscoops.com - Chevrolet has packed a lot of new stuff into its fresh Silverado 1500, but one of the biggest highlights is the availability of a diesel engine. And one of the unique parts of that is where it will be built. GM has announced that the new Duramax diesel engine – a 3.0-liter inline-six – will be manufactured at its engine plant in Flint, Michigan. Big deal, you say? Well it is for the employees working at the Flint Engine Operations. But it’s also a big deal for the simple reason that it’ll be the only light-duty full-size pickup with a diesel engine actually made in the United States.
