Diesel Power Imminent For 2015 Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon

Quote:
All-new midsized pickups are entering the fray with the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon fraternal twins, and it’s great to know that they will come well equipped with a diesel offering, GM Authority has learned.

This will put GM way ahead in sales if they price it right and they will own the mid size market now

Re: Diesel Power Imminent For 2015 Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon

And from Automotive News:

Quote:
General Motors, which is readying plans to offer a diesel in the next-generation Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon mid-sized pickups, three people familiar with GM's plans told Automotive News. The redesigned pickups are slated to get a version of GM's 2.5-liter or 2.8-liter, four-cylinder Duramax turbodiesels, which power the Colorado in overseas markets. The diesel option will be added to the U.S. lineup about a year after the fall 2014 launch of the redesigned trucks, the sources say.

That's okay if they do have that diesel it will be worth the wait. I can honestly deal with the styling for a 4 cylinder turbo diesel.

Re: Diesel Power Imminent For 2015 Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon

So if they come out with the turbo diesel colorado does that mean it'll be legal and pass emission laws etc.. If u swap the new 2015 motor into an older colorado?

I can't even imagine the nightmare job this would be. EVERY drive train piece would have to be custom fabbed, not to mention the all new fuel system and electronics. Not worth it at all. Putting a diesel in a 355 would only be slightly easier than converting it to a flux capacitor which runs on household trash.

I guess that gives me an extra year to save for the down payment. Fine by me.

yeah that's what most the overseas ratings seem to say, which with the right transmission and gearing will feel like double the power of the I5 and probably get 35-40mpg highway.
