The Midsize Pickup Just Got Exciting
We all know the lofty reputation that precedes the 2016 Chevy Colorado in Scottsboro AL. We all know about how it was missing from the Chevy lineup for a couple years, then returned in 2015 to reclaim its place atop the midsize pickup segment with style and substance that its competitors couldn’t match. We also knew that said competitors might try to make up ground for 2016, and that led the Colorado to continue its evolution for the new model year. First and foremost among those enhancements is the new 2.8L Duramax Turbo-Diesel, the first to be offered in this segment. Although it uses only four cylinders, the Duramax configuration will return an awesome 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, highest twist numbers in the class.
Of course, the powertrains that the Duramax is joining are no slouch either. The standard offering returns from 2015, a 2.5L inline four-cylinder that uses direct injection and variable valve timing to offer an astonishing 27 highway mpg. Even with this light-duty profile, smaller loads can still be pulled due to the four-banger’s 3,500-pound towing capacity. Meanwhile, the 3.6L V6 returns as well, which is truly the standard bearer for the segment. Using spark ignition direct injection, the V6 gets up to 26 highway mpg, while it also achieves best-in-class status with its 305 hp.
All told, picking between a powertrain has never been more difficult. In the 2016 Chevy Colorado, this is a pretty great problem to have.
Truly, the engines in the 2016 Chevy Colorado only work to tell half the tale, if that. For example, have you heard about the new special editions that the Colorado will be rolling out this year? Let’s start with the Midnight Edition, which followers of the Chevy truck lineup will recognize as an available trim on the Silverado 1500. With all-black badging, striking 18-inch black wheels and availability with any of the three powertrains, it promises to be a hot-ticket item. Also entering the lineup for 2016 is the Z71 Trail Boss, which is outfitted with everything you’d ever want to have for trail-tackling. A distinctive sport bar holds LED lighting, while black-finished 17-inch rims sit in Goodyear Wrangler all-terrain tires for total trail domination. Picking between these will be every bit as difficult as choosing a powertrain.
Regardless of your choice of engine or special edition, however, lots of goodies will be found inside the Colorado regardless. Features such as the first-in-class 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, which allows users to connect up to seven devices to a dedicated internet source. Or maybe you’re interested in phone integration? In that case, get into the customizable Chevy MyLink interface with an 8-inch diagonal touchscreen. The bottom line is, all throughout this wonderful pickup, you can’t help but be astonished by the many features and amenities that have made it among the most popular models to come to Harbin Automotive in recent years.
