GM's Diesel Colorado/Canyon Are FINALLY Headed To Dealerships

Industry News

And the company didn't even have to cheat to get them approved!

The Chevy Colorado was named this year's MotorTrend truck of the year, beating out heavy-hitters like the newly redesigned Ford F-150. The highly anticipated diesel model of the Colorado/Canyon has been delayed for a final review. Now, GM is saying that the 2016 GMC Canyon and Colorado diesel models "have begun to ship to dealers." The diesel engine was expected to arrive this fall, and GM has not given a reason for the delays. Earlier reports claim that the delays were not related to EPA approval.

GM reported that it received a certificate of conformity from the EPA in November just as the Volkswagen diesel scandal was being uncovered. The EPA then announced that the trucks would need more on-the-road testing. The diesel versions of the Canyon and Colorado are rated at 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway. The 31 mpg highway number tops any other truck currently sold in the US. The diesel engine makes 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Now customers looking for a fuel-efficient diesel truck can finally go in for a test drive. Also, 'Merica.
