The 1970s gas oil crisis, tough new emission laws, and the culture’s move toward using green technologies made the diesel engine a likely candidate for the family market. Diesel engines work by a direct injection cycle that relies on high temperature of compressed air to ignite the fuel in the cylinder. In 1982, the Chevy Diesel 6.2 served G20/30m Chevy Vans and Sportvans, full size pickups, 4WD Blazers, and Suburbans meeting emission laws of the time, and increasing fuel efficiency over previous gasoline engines.
Chevy Diesel 6.2 Specifics
The engine came from the Detroit Diesel Company a division of General Motors and was made specifically for Chevy trucks starting in 1982. Construction was of cast iron with cast iron heads in a V-8 design that focused on fuel economy of 20 to 21 MPG on the highway. For its time that was impressive. A compression of 21.5:1 using natural aspiration at 130 horse power that evolved to 143 horsepower over the years with a 3,600 RPM gave it the needed power to do a decent job of pulling loads. For everyday purposes, it met the needs.
