2016 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon Duramax Diesel Details and Pricing Released
General Motors made us wait a year for its Duramax four-cylinder diesel, but this fall it will join the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel as only the second compression-ignition engine offered to U.S. pickup buyers outside the heavy-duty segment.
For 2016, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon gain this third engine choice beyond their 200-hp 2.5-liter inline-four and 305-hp 3.6-liter V-6. As we’ve previously detailed, the Thai-built 2.8-liter turbo-diesel inline-four makes 181 horsepower at 3400 rpm and 369 lb-ft of torque at 2000 rpm. It will be available only on crew-cab trucks (and limited to LT and Z71 trims on the Colorado, SLE and SLT on the Canyon) but can be spec’d with either two- or four-wheel drive. The Z82 trailering package (hitch receiver, seven-pin connector, and a diesel-only trailer-brake controller) comes standard along with a locking 3.42:1 rear differential (versus the gasoline four’s 4.10:1) and driver-switchable exhaust brake.
