Looks like we are soon going to have another round of engine changes do to fuel mileage standards now being required for 3/4-1 ton pickups.

By 2027 there has to be a 16% reduction in fuel used for pickup trucks.

Makes me wonder how much more expensive these trucks can get?

Besides you can already eat off my tailpipe, we seem to be chasing small gains.

New and innovative technology, fuel efficient, better for the environment AND cost effective. I can't wait to see where this goes.

Reminds me of the old graphic arts saying that you can have high quality, low price, and fast turnaround. Pick any 2.

I guess in trucks, you can have high quality, low price, and high performance. Pick any 2.

More "feel good zero gains" legislation for the latest fake crisis.

I registered my diesel Ram to my AZ address to avoid the ridiculously naive CA regulations....

The Automotive equivalent of the Affordable Care Act. Gotta pass it so you can read it to see what a crock it is?

The changes were requested by the trucking industry and developed in cooperation with the manufacturers.
The trucking industry expects to save billions per year.

The required method to save fuel is "by any means". So aerodynamics, hybrid, rolling resistance, braking recovery, etc are all possible.
