2016 Chevy Colorado Duramax Turbo-Diesel | Lexington KY
Ever since the Chevy Colorado returned to the Jack Burford lineup in fall of 2014, we’ve enjoyed an unprecedented run of awards and enhancements that have certainly kept us on our toes. Perhaps most noteworthy is the Colorado’s back-to-back wins for Motor Trend Truck of the Year, taking top honors in both 2015 and 2016. While the 2015 award recognized the significance of the Colorado’s return to the top of the midsize pickup segment, the latest award heralds the arrival of something else altogether: the 2016 Chevy Colorado Duramax Turbo-Diesel, now available near Lexington, KY.
Although the idea of a Turbo-Diesel was floated from the minute that the new Colorado was announced, even we couldn’t have predicted the impact it would have. All told, the Colorado Duramax is powered by a 2.8L Turbo-Diesel four-cylinder engine, a power platform that transcends its smallish size by delivering incredible performance. What sort of performance are we talking, you ask? Try on 181 hp, along with a class-leading 369 lb-ft of torque and 7,700-pound towing capacity. Even as it growls with power numbers not seen in any competing model, the Colorado Duramax still achieves a best-in-class 31 highway mpg.
