One of the more popular attractions on the Chevrolet show floor at the 2012 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto is the Engine Build with Licensed Technician Conrad Italiano - this years engine build features the Duramax 6.6L V8 diesel from the Chevrolet Silverado HD trucks.
Chevrolet Silverado HD is the 2011 Motor Trend Truck of the Year.
The Duramax is a General Motors diesel engine family for light- and medium duty trucks, designed by Isuzu. The 6.6-liter Duramax is produced by DMAX, a joint venture between GM and Isuzu in Moraine, Ohio. This engine was initially installed in 2001 model year Chevy and GMC trucks and has been an option since then in pickups, vans, and medium-duty trucks. In 2006, production at Moraine was reportedly limited to approximately 200,000 engines per year. On May 9, 2007, DMAX announced the production of the 1,000,000th Duramax V-8 diesel at its Moraine facility.
