http://www.autobytel.com/chevrolet/colorado/2016/?id=32972 It’s been years since Chevy put a diesel engine into a mid-sized pickup truck. Under the hood is the optional $3,905 2.8 liter 4-cylinder Duramax Diesel Engine that makes 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque with a best-in-class towing capacity of 7700 lbs. Fuel economy is 20 MPG city and 29 MPG on the highway.

Chevrolet says the 2016 Colorado Diesel is the most fuel efficient pickup truck on the market and the cleanest diesel that GM has ever built. If you need to haul stuff or drive many miles, the diesel engine and cabin amenities add up to a winning combination.

I don't trust GM gas engine and drive-trains in reliability and to go the long mile and last. I certainly don't trust GM with diesel technology over the long haul. My God ..... just imagine.

It's sad you can't get this engine in an extended cab without having to step all the way up to the ZR2 trim level. An Extended Cab in WT or LT trim level with a long bed, spray-in bedliner, and diesel would have been perfect.

Nice review! But maybe the drivers aids you mentioned, like rear detractors and lane departure were not available on Z71 at the time, but they are now, plus there mandatory with the diesel! Also you said the diesel would be available in all Colorados except the base, which is true, but only in a Crew Cab, the only Ext Cab that you can get a diesel in is the newest ZR2! A manual would be nice at times, but these new automatic transmissions are fantastic! Plus they work better than any manual could! Especially the new 8 speed automatic available now in the gas trucks. I've owned a 2016 Colorado Z71,4x4,V6 Ext Cab for 17 months and 15,000 trouble free miles now. The only minor issue was the airbag recall, that the dealer took care of in a very short time, while I was able to take a Camaro SS out for a test drive! I get 17 city and 27 highway at the speed limits while using cruise control. I also tow a 4,000 lbs 21' travel trailer all over the east coast and Appalachian Mountains on many camping trips. The longest was this past feb/march for three weeks, from home in Massachusetts to Key West, down the east coast of Fla, the back up the west coast of Fla to The Smokey Mountains of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, then home again though VA,PA,N.J.,N.Y. and back into New England! On that trip we averaged 14 mpg! On a very similar trip, with the same weight but older travel trailer, with the third Silverado we had trad for the Colorado, we would average about 11 mpg! So needless to say we're very pleased with the gas powered Colorado! On that same trip, a cousin who owns a new Tacoma TRD Sport 4x4,V6 Crew Cab, towing an identical travel trailer as ours with his wife only averaged 12 mpg and had a noticeable lack of power in the mountains! We also traded trucks for a tankful of gas, only to all of us agree the Colorado is much more comfortable! Plus a smoother drive with better power delivery. So much so his traded his Tacoma just last week for a new Colorado Z71,4x4, diesel!!

They are nice but damn they sure are expensive. I'll stick to my 99 Silverado.

I'm glad to see a return of the small turbo diesel engine. The last time GM offered a diesel engine in its small trucks was 35 years ago. I only hope this one remains on the market for longer period of time than it did 35 yrs ago. Is diesel for everyone? Maybe, maybe not. It depends on what people want and what they use their truck for. Not everyone needs a large truck for the job. Sometimes a smaller truck would be perfect. Therefore, a smaller diesel engine would be better for the job. :)

Great review.

I love my 2005 Colorado I5, GM should have saved money on redesign, fixed the few little electrical problems, added a little power and efficiency to the I5 engine, and made a bunch of capable little standard cab pickups that a guy could go buy for $15,000, all the auto Manufacturers seem to be out of touch with the market.

Good review. Thanks.
Daniel Costa
If they make a manual trany I'll buy it
Karl
Need this engine in a completely refreshed Equinox ASAP.

Garbage. Google chev recall. I predicted right. All there money is spent on ads and trying to copy ford and not on R&D. You have to be pretty ignorant if you purchase GM junk
Wes Razz
Why would you not get the ram eco tradesman crew 4x4. I think its less then this.
