Chevy re-introduced the Colorado to the US market last year, Tacomas and Frontiers finally had some serious competition. The new 2015 Colorado set the bar for "best" mid-size truck. For 2016, that bar just got a little bit higher with the introduction of the new 2.8-liter Duramax Diesel engine under the Colorado's hood. What does the Colorado Duramax give you for $3,730 (over a comparably equipped V6 model)? Try 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. How about a six-speed automatic with a 7,700 lb. towing capacity (2WD). And of course class-leading fuel economy. The Colorado is available with a lot of GM's good stuff like Chevy MyLink with phone integration technology (and compatibility with Apple CarPlay), OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert. all-wheel drive, and much more. Since the Colorado has been out and about for almost a year, it has shown itself to be "right-sized" for city dwellers and many others. I think it's the best-looking pick-em-up as well (remember the ZR2 Concept?) and now with the available diesel, the purchase of a new Colorado makes sense for many more folks. Check out the press release after the jump for more info.
