GM hit quite the home run when they released the new 6.6L Duramax and Allison transmission combo in their 2001 model year trucks. It was exactly what the bowtie fans had been screaming to get for years. The 6.5L Turbo Diesel they ran through the 1990s had been left in the dust after Dodge and Ford upped their game with the 12V Cummins and 7.3L Power Stroke engines. Since 2001, the Duramax powerplant has been a force with which to be reckoned. Through every engine revision, as the use of electronics and their abilities grew, the platform continued to push the light duty diesel market with cutting edge technology that offered power and torque while maintaining great mileage and quiet, smooth-running engines.

While the cosmetics of the factory tailpipe has been much improved on the 2017+ Duramax over the earlier ’08-’16 model year trucks, it’s still a bit of an eyesore on an otherwise classy looking truck. Because the diesel particulate emissions systems will run extremely hot—and the vented tip is a necessity—there are aftermarket answers to maintain functionality with a little better style.
