Thanks for the reply Bluto. I looked extensively at the 06 and early 07 models. You definitely have a great engine there. I believe the basic Duramax has remained relative unchanged since 2001, but because of tougher emission standards the mileage and performance have been altered.
Starting Jan. 1, 2010, all new diesel-powered vehicles will again
have to meet increased federal diesel emission standards that will reduce allowable nitrogen oxide levels by 90 percent from today, 96 percent from 1994 levels. This will also increase the cost to the consumer.
2010 maybe the last year for the diesel before federal control further impedes the market...

I think you're right Tom. Excellent point.
Anyone else have experience with how these three model years stack up?
