General Motors is reportedly going to release more diesel-powered cars and trucks in the U.S. in the next few years.
According to Steve Kiefer, GM’s vice president of global powertrain, diesels in cars and trucks could grow to 10 percent of the market by 2020. Currently GM only offers a diesel engine in the Chevy Cruze and in the heavy-duty versions of the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups.

It’s expected that the next vehicle to be offered with a diesel engine will be the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon midsize pickup trucks, which are expected to get a 2.8L four-cylinder for the 2016 model year.
