2015 GM Colorado Announced - 2016 Model Comes with Diesel

Not sure if this has been posted here before but they just announced the 2015 Colorado / Canyon. Highlights from the article at Autonet - http://bit.ly/I4gVwH
  • Optional 2016 engine will be a Duramax 2.8L I-4 turbo diesel avaiable at all trim levels
  • The standard engines will be a base 2.5L I-4 (193 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque - 90% is available at a low start rpm of just 2,000) and a 3.6L V6 (302 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque)
  • Both engines matched with a six-speed automatic transmission.
  • The V6 with the tow package will pull 3,039kg (6,700 lb)
  • Each model will offer 17-inch aluminum wheels

Too early to tell, it is a GM. Hopefully Toyota responds with something out of the box but I'm not counting on it. Probably a refreshed grill plate for 2015...

Would be interesting to see the fuel economy of the diesel. According to the Australia Toyota site the Hilux Double Cab diesel gets 8.1 l/100km (29 mpg) with 253 lb-ft of torque

Wow! It bears some resemblance to a Tacoma. I might actually be interested in a diesel one.

Article says prices are not out yet. Last sentence of first article states "There is no word on pricing yet, probably later this summer."

A diesel version is going to steal some Toyota owners. If they can make it do 30mpgs, haul and tow with respectable numbers, and cost under $35k i may look at one. Toyota needs a kick in the balls like this truck will do to sales for the Tacoma to wake up

Another one

Another one that resembles a toyota... I drove a cummins for a while... Traded to Tundra... Now at Tacoma... Them diesels are heavy. Not sure how the weight of the little diesels are, but I've use a diesel kabota.. Stayed hung up a lot... Love my OR DCSB ... Like to have little better mileage though..

I'll have to see how the reliability is but if it's there and Toyota fails to respond my Taco is so gone....

I'm not getting how the former two industry kings become so bull headed that they are willing to loose customers because they fail to offer new (recent & in the US) products. I blame the weakening Yen somewhat. While global market share for TM is decreasing profits are in fact rising due to advantages exchange rates.

But, how long can it last? GM alone is adding something on the order of 20 new or significantly revise products over a relatively short period.

Look at Tundra (and other TM products) no new engines with new product cycle. HMC is the same. Current Civic is the same power train used on the last cycle.

If only they offered it with a manual transmission, then I would definitely consider it.
