Simple answer, emissions regulations and that thing doesn't have the power to pull what the public will demand of it. For a daily driver that is low on maintenance and good one fuel it would be fine, but your not going to work that thing as hard as a 7.3/6.0/6.4/6.7 and so on.

If they made the 6bt emissions compliant then they could've made the 4bt as well. Although I wouldn't know how that would affect the contract with Chrysler, there's plenty of buyers who'd opt for a fuel efficient diesel in an SUV or 1/2 Ton with enough brawn to pull a small camper or small block Chevy (he he) to the track

4BT, 6BT neither were ever emissions compliant nor had to be in their day, in today's standards though they wouldn't stand a chance. Far less refined also, you may have a small niche that wouldn't mind the noise or vibration and moody cold weather starting of a 6BT or 4 BT but a small niche doesn't get the bills paid.


Besides the ISB engines are far better in every way.

No worries, the 1/2 ton diesel market will be a tough one for manufactures to crack. Most people that buy half tons won't pony up for the added cost of a diesel option.
