Now is a good time to work in the diesel industry, according to Nicola Menarini. He should know, he's been involved in diesel engineering for nearly 30 years working for multiple manufacturers worldwide. Today Nicola is GM's Chief Engineer & Program Manager for Duramax where he's overseeing the rollout the next Generation Duramax - the 6.6L L5P, 2.8L Duramax and the 1.6L diesel power the new Chevy Cruze. Nicola explains to Diesel Performance Podcast's Nick Priegnitz, Danny Voss, and Paul Wilson some of the forthcoming changes to the GM diesel line-up. The new Chevy Cruze will feature a manual transmission because that's what customers said they wanted. The future will also include diesel configurations of a medium size SUV and Van. The conversation also covers exhaust gas temperatures, regen, transient response, and the removal of soot and N0X emissions from diesel exhaust.
