GM Buying Back Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra Pickups Over Duramax Diesel Engine
Diesel-powered trucks from the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra are being bought back by GM in an undisclosed quantity.
The quantity of trucks included in the repurchase has not been disclosed. Additionally unknown are the years that the problem affects.
What we do know is that the 6.6-liter L5P V8 Duramax turbo-diesel engine is having quality problems.
On April 21, 2022, GM published a Dealer Order Submission. Both fleet and retail truck purchasers are included.
Not all of the vehicles have yet been acquired, but some of them have.
We also don't know what truck models or how many of them are impacted, nor do we know what the issues with the Duramax engines are.
Will the GM buyback replacements be 2022 Silverado and Sierra trucks?
In their place, GM will instal 2022 Silverado and Sierra pickups.
The bad aspect of the buyback is that the trucks now being manufactured don't have all of the characteristics that vehicles that have already been built do.
It serves as a reminder of the problems facing production today since the microprocessor shortage is hurting several components utilised in these automobiles.
Numerous alternatives are still unavailable at this time. Front and rear park assist, heated and ...
ventilated front seats, heated outboard rear seats, and a heated steering wheel are some of its features.
There have been issues off and on with the Duramax for years. The 2003 Duramax has been called out as being problematic.
