Chevy

I have to give Chevy one of these . I hate to say but it's true. Chevy comes up with some if the sweetest ideas. Like putting a diesel in the 1500's, Suburbans, Full size Blazers, first to have heated seats, all power windows on the crew cabs. The Duramax, when tuned are badazz and can go through more abuse than a 6.0. Ford has kept it real with their diesels but Chevy put theirs in a lot more vehicles and did it first. When it comes down to it I'de still rather drive a Ford.

Well hell, BMW are going to completely discontinue their gasoline engines as of 2012.
