We still don’t have any official performance figures about the upcoming GM 3.0L Duramax turbo-diesel engine, RPO code LM2, though leaks from late last year have pegged the new inline-six motor at 282 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque in the 2019 Silverado 1500 and 2019 Sierra 1500. Besides a confirmation that the engine is not delayed despite several rumors, that’s the last we’ve heard about the new diesel mill… until now.
Thanks to an eagle-eyed GM Authority reader who, for the time being, shall remain anonymous – we have been able to uncover new pictures of the new 3.0L Duramax. The photos represent the very first images of the new engine… but it gets better.
The images in question are from official GM documents and are actually vectors, meaning that they contain a significant level of detail. This allows us to zoom in on the front and rear isometric views and see so many more details.
