With diesel prices $.80- $.90 higher than gas, and the cracking down of diesel particulate emissions, I doubt that the manuf. would want to take the risk of all the money spent and very little sales on a more expensive engine option, especially with a smaller diesel that would fit in a 1/2 ton probably only having 250 hp and 350-400 ft lb of tork. You wouldn't be much better than what you can get on a gas motor and at a higher price. Maybe a little better mpg like 3-5 mpg better but not the 10-15+ that everybody wishes for.

I read on a GM report that they have a design and prototype diesel for the 1/2 ton's rated at little over 300HP & 525 ftlb torque. They mentioned the plan to roll them out is shelved for now until the economy gets better...interesting.
