General Motors Diesel Division was a unit of General Motors and was a manufacturer of locomotives, transit buses and military products.

The locomotive unit was acquired by private investors, the transit bus divisions were purchased by TMC in the U.S. and MCI in Canada, and the GM Defense unit was purchased by General Dynamics. The engine making unit later became Detroit Diesel and sold to DaimlerChrysler AG in 2000 (now a unit of Daimler AG).

GMDD's Canadian operations were renamed as Diesel Division of General Motors of Canada Limited in 1975.
