Motor Trend only recently took smoothness of a Silver Ice Metallic 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Z71 pickup versed with a 2.8L four-cylinder Duramax diesel for long-term evaluation, and we’re meddlesome in saying what unfolds. So distant everybody seems to adore a new Colorado, that has won countless awards, though how most adore will it get in a year from now?
The categorical disproportion between this 2016 Colorado and a 2015 Colorado Z71 long-term vehicle Motor Trend formerly had is what lies underneath a hood, with a final pickup utilizing a 3.6L V6. Here are a options this Colorado features:
- Crew cab configuration
- Z71 off-road-oriented trim package
- 6-speed involuntary delivery and 4-wheel drive
- Spray-on bed liner
- Chevrolet MyLink Infotainment complement with OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi
- Bose audio system
- Trailering Equipment package with“Off-road” support steps
Let’s not forget a combined amenities that are enclosed with a 2.8L diesel, including a two-speed send case, a tow/haul mode with an empty brake, and a trailer stop controller. Hopefully all of these components work though a join during this long-term evaluation.
The approach we see it, this Colorado Z71 diesel is a ideal fit for those who need to transport though wish improved fuel mileage and a some-more compress distance than what a Silverado offers. With a Motor Trend-tested 0-60 run of 9.2 seconds and quarter-mile pass of 16.8 seconds during 79.7 mph it’s protected to contend that a pickup isn’t meant for straight-line speeds. It’s a application vehicle. Though we consider a fast pickup lorry this size would be loads of fun, don’t we agree?
