Halfway through the 2004 model year, the second generation of the Duramax diesel engine was introduced in GM Silverado/Sierra 2500HD/3500HD pickups. Since the LLY and LB7 engines were both available in the same year, the LLY was unofficially referred to as the 2004.5 model year by the diesel aftermarket and enthusiasts alike. The second generation 6.6 LLY Duramax continued to utilize several components from the first generation Duramax, but also included new components that increased performance while reducing emissions. The EPA emissions standards began to increase so GM needed to modify the Duramax LLY engine to meet the new requirements. Adding a new variable-vane turbocharger and introducing an exhaust gas recirculation system were some of the key improvements to this engine. The previous generation Duramax engine was plagued with injector failures which led to the revision of the common-rail fuel system for the 2004.5 Duramax. GM designed this engine to provide durability and reliability in their heavy-duty pickups.

One of the main elements that was carried over from the LB7 Duramax to the LLY was the solid deep-skirt engine block foundation. The 6.6L Duramax LLY engine block was cast in a gray iron alloy and fitted with cast-aluminum heads. This engine featured an overhead valve (OHV) design with 4 valves per cylinder, for a total of 32 valves. For added durability, this Duramax engine contained cast-aluminum pistons and forged-steel connecting rods with a cracked cap design. A high-pressure common-rail fuel system powered by a Bosch CP3 injection pump would continue to be utilized on the LLY engine. To avoid similar injector issues from the first generation Duramax, new externally serviceable fuel injectors were added. Reducing emissions would be one of the major focuses for diesel truck manufacturers as EPA emissions standards became more strict. The 6.6L Duramax LLY integrated an EGR system, which directed the exhaust gases back through the intake to lower combustion temperature and reduce nitrous oxide emissions.

Another upgrade from the first generation Duramax was the new variable-vane turbocharger. This Garret GT3788VA turbocharger featured a 62mm compressor wheel making it the largest flowing factory turbocharger on a Duramax engine. The VVT style turbocharger also provided better throttle response throughout the RPM range and reduced particulate matter pollutants. Between 2004.5-2005 the Duramax LLY was rated at 310 hp and 520 lb-ft of torque. Paired with this Duramax engine was either a ZF 6-speed manual transmission or a heavy-duty 5-speed automatic Allison transmission.
