General Motors to bring range of diesels to U.S.?

Is the world’s biggest automaker finally bowing to high-torque fans by bringing more diesel powerplants to the U.S.?

During a talk with the trade publication Automobilwoche, an unidentified GM manager was quoted as saying: “We are developing right now two highly modern diesel motors that won't just fulfill the Euro-5 emission standards, but (also) the more stringent Bin-5 regulations in the USA.”

The engines include a 2.9 liter V6 and a 4.5 liter V8. If the report is true, they would likely be rolled out in various GM vehicles starting in 2008.
