2016 Chevy Colorado Duramax Diesel Edmonton AB
Since it was reintroduced for the 2015 model year, the Chevy Colorado has become the fastest-selling truck available on the market. And now, as was announced a few months ago, it offers a much-demanded turbo-diesel engine. The 2016 Chevy Colorado Duramax Diesel in Edmonton AB builds upon the excellent performance and capabilities of the Colorado, which not only introduced many first-ever features for the segment but had plenty of class-leading specifications as well, by offering the most fuel-efficient truck engine on the market.
Efficiency & Capability of the 2016 Chevy Colorado Duramax Diesel
The addition of the Duramax Diesel engine on the new 2016 Chevy Colorado was something truck enthusiasts everywhere were clamoring for for a long time. Now that it is here, it has become apparent why, as things like the already class-leading max trailering ratings have been increased by 700 lbs. But improvements to the capabilities aren’t the only thing that the new 2.8L Duramax turbodiesel engine has brought to the Colorado, as it can now call itself the most fuel-efficient truck on the market.
The 2.8L Duramax delivers 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft. of torque, which is certainly in line with the segment. But the engine also achieves a highway fuel efficiency rating of 7.7 l/100km on two-wheel drive models. That’s not only impressive for a truck, it’d be impressive for an SUV and even some large sedans. With 10.8 l/100km on the city streets, 2WD models combine for 9.4 l/100km. Four-wheel drive models don’t take much of a hit either, achieving 8.2 l/100km highway, 12 l/100km city and 10.3 l/100km combined.
