What does anyone know about the new 1999 Chevy
I am interested in one and want to know such
things as if they are getting the LS1 V8 , etc.

I have heard a few things about the 99's.. The 5 liter is no more. It will be replaced by a 4.9 liter v-8.. The 4.3 liter is said to be replaced by a 215 hp 3.8 liter Generation IIII both are based on the new LS1 engine. And the cast iron LS1 will make an appearance and a big one at that... you will have to wait and see..

I heard that Chevy might be getting a Catapiller diesel engin for 1999. That would make thing more interesting in the big 3 competition.

There is nothing wrong with the detroit deisel
that they have now its their fuel injector pumps
that they have to fix they are now on the fourth
re-design when my truck is not in the shop nothing
touches it on the road. Loaded down hauling a trailer over the mountains in Kentucky never overheated cruised past the big guys and still got
16-18 mpg. Its everything else except the engine
that falls apart!!

I've seen sketches in Wards Auto World. The only thing that seems bad about this truck is that there is going to be NO option for a 4th door on extended cabs, only 3. The truck will make it's official debut at the Detroit Auto Show in January , and it seems like it will be available for sale in early fall of 98.

Food for thought:
The C/K line will be all new, available this fall,
however, dealers will NOT be dealing for at least
6-9 months which brings you to about the 2000 model year.
The advice of one:
If your waiting, don't. Lease a RAM Quad Cab for
two years and then investigate the '00 C/K series. It'll have a model year of refinement, which it will most definately need and offer four doors.
