2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel Review

There is no question that the introduction of GMís redesigned midsize pickups made a splash in the segment, attracting customers back to smaller trucks.

And not just GM is benefitting. The entire U.S. midsize pickup segment is up about 49 percent year-over-year in 2015, a kickstart that began when the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon came to town.

But even though GMís trucks lay claim to segment-best towing, payload and fuel economy numbers, the Colorado and Canyon combined still havenít outsold the Toyota Tacoma in any single month since they returned. GM is surely hoping that the introduction of the segmentís only small diesel engine will help turn that tide with the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel.

The engine in question is a 2.8-liter Duramax diesel that is built in Thailand and is already fitted in international versions of the truck. It cranks out 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm here in the U.S. Thatís more twist than what is found in the Silverado V6 and just 14 lb-ft shy of whatís found in the 5.3-liter V8 from Chevyís half-tons. It also outclasses its biggest rival, the V6-powered Tacoma, by 104 lb-ft, clearly setting itself apart.

If youíre interested in my thoughts on the interior, bed or other facets of this truck, check out one of my many reviews on the gas-powered Colorado or Canyon. The reason youíre here is the diesel, so letís talk diesel.
