The 2016 Colorado Duramax – Diesel, Baby!

Voted Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year for 2015, the new Colorado Duramax is ready to take on 2016 with a new engine option and cutting-edge technology.

This midsize truck is a study in efficient capability and Best-in-Class performance, meaning you don’t have to choose one over the other to get what you want.

Consider the engine options, a trio of taskmasters that mean business.

Standard equipment comes from the 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine, which, thanks to its Direct Injection and Variable Valve Timing, has enough muscle to tow a maximum of 3,500 pounds with fuel efficiency EPA-estimated at 27 highway mpg.

Stepping up to the V6 offering, the Colorado gets 26 mpg on the highway and features Spark Ignition Direct Injection, along with deceleration fuel cutoff. This is the truck to choose if you want to boast Best-in-Class horsepower, rated at 305 hp, along with towing power rated at a maximum of 7,000 pounds.

But to really drive the best of both words with respect to efficiency and power, check out the new for 2016 Duramax 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel engine, the only midsize pickup truck to offer a diesel drivetrain in the entire midsize pickup truck segment.

The 2016 Chevy Colorado Takes on Technology

In addition to the power and efficiency prowess, the 2016 Chevy Colorado lineup is tech-savvy, the first midsize truck with available 4G LTE Wi-Fi, supported by Chevy’s OnStar system, which can be fully customized on the eight-inch touch-screen display. New Apple CarPlay integrates with your iPhone, allowing you to access your music preferences and even text messages right on the truck’s screen.

The Chevy MyLink also supports Pandora radio, and the steering wheel features controls that allow drivers to access and operate music, phone, and voice command technologies. Getting lost on a weekend road trip is no longer a threat, thanks to the MyLink Radio with Navigation capabilities.

Another helpful and convenient MyLink feature comes from the RemoteLink service, which comes standard for five years and makes it possible for you to remotely start, lock, and unlock your vehicle, as well as find your truck in a crowded parking lot by activating the lights and horn.

Setting the Safety Standard in the 2016 Chevy Colorado

As always, Chevy’s commitment to safety is clear with the passive and active features found in the 2016 Chevy Colorado. Standard safety is supported by the truck’s high-strength steel frame and reinforced safety cage, along with a strategically-placed collection of airbags, including seat-mounted side-impact, head-curtain side-impact, and dual-state frontal airbags.

A rear camera also comes standard this year. Also, drivers get Chevy’s OnStar and Automatic Crash Response for six months standard.

In the event of an accident the 2016 Chevy Colorado immediately turns off the fuel pump, while turning on the interior and hazard lights, and unlocking the doors so that emergency personnel can easily locate and address any possible injuries.

Of course, safety can always be enhanced, and to that end Chevy offers the available Lane Departure and Forward Collision alerts.
