    Is it true that Chevy made or still does make a pickup with an optional CAT engine?

    Sad news for Cat fans...

    "Caterpillar officials also announced their company would not supply EPA 2010-compliant engines"

    They plan to offer a "Cat branded engine" built by Navistar (International Trucks)

    I thought I remembered seeing a Chevy 2500 or a 3500 with a CAT engine.

    I remembered hearing that CAT has put their name on other manufacturers' engines in the past. Maybe that's what it was.

    I still cant believe the best legendary Diesel engine builder is packing it in. D*mn Tree hugging environmentalist. They F%^KED UP DIESELS so bad that they now burn more fuel then gas counterparts. Yeah, that's good for mother earth. I will say that my buddy has a Peterbuit 397, with an ACERT 15, or 18? I cant remember. But when that engine starts, it gives me a special little feeling. I know, I'm in therapy for OCD. " Obsessive Caterpillar Disorder";)

    :laugh: :laugh: You got that last part from Ronnie! :laugh:

    They really did ruin the diesel. The old 5.9 cummins used to get 20mpg, now your lucky to get 14 out of the new 6.7 cummins.
