Damn spell check.
Now come on! Christ had a pogo stick!? How come I never heard about it before?
Cat is working with Navistar and is going to be building their own line of medium to heavy duty trucks.
As far as I know the deal is still going through. It originally got put on hold after the markets melted down.
I can't remember where the plant will be located, but I think it's going to be in IL somewhere.
I honestly think this a great move for CAT and Navistar. The 6.0 motor was rushed into production and I feel this deal will help them sort out all their issues with their diesels.
With all that technology they took from the duramax, it should be a good motor!
An Isuzu motor ?, are you kidding. More like Chevy stole the technology.
more like chevy owns the technology lol. . .I remember reading in Diesel Power or something a few years back about a CAT powered pickup. . They kind of eluded to Ford using the engine. . more than likely cause of the 6.0 issues. .
Gm and isuzu developed that motor in a joint effort. Ford engineers have always had to build bigger engines to meet gm's hp. GM 350-ford 351 GM 454 -ford 460,duramax 6.6-powerstroke 6.7 etc,etc.etc. Dont even get me started on fuel consumption!
You must be forgetting about GM's 6.2 and 6.5 diesel fiascos the whole time Ford was running the Pre-PS 6.9 and 7.3. Also, as I recall, there was a time when GM attempted to maximize fuel economy on their 7.4 gasser at the expense of power. They failed miserably. Not only was it a dog on performance, it drank like a wino. I had one, so I know.
