The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado expands on its popularity with a unique proposition: a new Duramax 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine. It expands the towing capacity of the Colorado to 7,700 pounds, and promises to bump the fuel economy significantly as well. Yet it all comes with a surprising amount of refinement, enhancing the Colorado’s day-to-day drivability. Also new are Apple CarPlay and an off-road package known as "Trail Boss." Combine it with features like Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning and a standard rearview camera, and the 2016 Chevy Colorado has the goods to go toe-to-toe not just with the segment-leading and all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma, but also against crossover SUVs that may have left the midsize-truck market when it became stagnant.
The Duramax 2.8-liter turbodiesel I-4 only makes 181 hp, but its 369 lb-ft of torque gets the little(ish) Chevy truck moving with authority.Almost more important than how the Duramax behaves on the road is what it enables the Colorado to do—for a $3,905 premium, it increases the Colorado's towing capacity by 600 pounds (up to 7,600 total) over the 3.6-liter V-6, and it significantly improves fuel economy from an EPA-rated 17/24/20 mpg city/highway/combined to 20/28/23 mpg for four-wheel-drive models such as our Colorado Z71. The fuel economy improvements were noticed on the road, too.
