Diesels

Hello Blazer fans, could I bother you to tell me what year range the 6.2 was available? I was thinking they dropped it before the end of square production. Thanks.

Re: Diesels

From Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Detroit_Diesel_V8_engine

The original 6.2 L (379 cu in) Diesel V8 was introduced in 1982 for the Chevrolet/GMC C/K trucks and was produced until 1993. The 6.2L diesel emerged as a high-MPG alternative to the V8 gasoline engine lineup, and achieved better mileage than the General Motors 4.3L V6 gasoline engines of the 80s, at a time when the market was focused on mileage more than power.
