It’s accessible to see why for some people, today’s full-size trucks don’t accomplish the anatomic cut. We’re a bit abashed at the admeasurement and ability of today’s accustomed full-size trucks; with cabs that crave active boards to get into, and advanced ends acutely modeled afterwards that of semis, they’re behemoths that accept agitation applicable into abounding cities and suburbs—or alike forth a forested two-track.

And there are a lot of adverse priorities adverse barter shoppers. You appetite towing and carriage capability, yet a affable ride, acceptable autogenous comfort, and appropriate ammunition efficiency. With the 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel agent that’s anew accessible for 2016, abounding of those conflicts get quashed—up to 7,700 pounds trailering; clearly added than 30 mpg on the highway, GM promises; and the aesthetic ride, easier maneuverability, and adorable berth accessories we’ve appear to acknowledge from the Colorado aback it was absolutely redesigned aftermost year.

In its antecedent generation, the Colorado was offered with a V-8, and the new Duramax agent finer replaces that engine’s position as the towing crammer of the lineup—just with bisected the cylinders. The four-cylinder turbo-diesel makes aloof 181 horsepower, yet it anatomy out 369 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm.

The 2.8-liter Duramax has an adamant block and aluminum butt head, with a artificial animate crankshaft and abutting rods. There are additionally piston-cooling oil jets, and an oiling ambit that’s committed to the turbocharger. There are bowl afterglow plugs for quick algid starting, while a antithesis shaft has been redesigned for alike smoother operation and a laminated-steel oil pan aids agent accuracy and quietness. It’s all aided, too, by a appropriate damping arrangement that uses accessory bounce masses.

Unruly edge? Forget about it.

It’s abreast absurd to acquisition an assertive bend here. Furthermore, the 6L50 six-speed automated that the agent is commutual with (also with a 3.42 rear arbor ratio) handles this agent perfectly, afresh with a akin of clarification to the accouterment and to low-speed edge that wouldn’t be out of abode in a affluence truck. Wind this agent abundant accomplished the 3,500-rpm range, area its torque plateau starts to bead off, and the Colorado surges alluringly advanced with anniversary upshift, as you bead appropriate aback on that beachcomber of torque. And while there’s aloof a bit of a adjournment if you footfall assimilate the gas, cat-and-mouse for the big turbo to ball up, the torque comes on in a way that rarely requires a downshift.

Diesel trucks accept historically brought a louder, somewhat added vibration-intensive acquaintance to the cabin. But that’s not the case here. Yes, it’s a little louder from the alfresco than its gasoline counterparts; yet from the driver’s seat, the agent four is decidedly refined, and so bland (and mostly chargeless of the ballyhoo and blast sounds) that it wouldn’t be out of abode in a luxury-badged vehicle. It additionally seems added hushed and removed from the berth than the 2.2-liter in the Chevy Cruze Agent commuter car.

We alike anticipate it’s quieter from central the berth than the turbo-diesel V-6 in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Ram 1500.

The agent was conceived from the alpha to be allotment of the all-around Colorado barter family, although GM has alien a alternation of revisions aimed at authoritative it a lot smoother and quieter from the cabin—as able-bodied as absolutely up to the assignment in U.S. active conditions. The appropriate balance-shaft bureaucracy engineered for the U.S. bazaar helps, additional a laminated-steel oil pan for added rigidity. Versus the all-embracing adaptation of this engine, Chevy has additionally subbed in altered affability for the high-pressure common-rail direct-injection ammunition system.

Global, but smoothed-over for the U.S. on assorted levels

Emissions-wise, GM says that the Duramax 2.8 is the cleanest barter agent that the automaker has anytime produced. And anecdotally, we couldn’t ascertain alike a aroma of agent odor (although abounding admission, GM broiled the Colorado Diesels up for us and we’re still analytical about the always-noisier algid start).

A cooled bankrupt gas recirculation (EGR) arrangement helps accumulate tailpipe emissions clean, as does a careful catalytic abridgement (SCR) arrangement that feeds a urea (also alleged agent bankrupt fluid, or DEF) band-aid into the bankrupt beck at a approved interval. Officials said that this aqueous should alone charge to be topped off with anniversary oil-change service, although towing and high-speed, high-load use will use the urea at a faster rate.

We got abundant mileage, too. Over a 42-mile active loop, consisting of two-lane country roads, a abbreviate amplitude of ample coulee road, and a abbreviate freeway stint, with two altered drivers active carefully with the breeze of traffic, we averaged about 31 mpg with a 2WD Crew Cab Colorado Agent (the lightest, best effieicnt guise for this powertrain, as accepted cabs aren’t offered).

The Duramax agent is alike acceptable for b20 biodiesel (a alloy of 20 percent biodiesel, 80 percent fossil-fuel-derived diesel).

The Dodge Ram 1500 EcoDiesel gets an EPA-rated 21 mpg city, 29 highway, and 24 mpg combined—and we’ve done somewhat bigger than that accumulated amount in real-world active with the Ram.

Up to 7,700 pounds towing…and a boor brake

We didn’t get a adventitious to tow with the Colorado Diesel, but the adequacy is there in abounding force—with up to 7,700 pounds, including a tow/haul approach and auto brand braking.

There absolutely is a agent anchor ambassador (and button) for the Colorado Diesel, but it’s bendable to engage; about the the bankrupt anchor works with the cruise ascendancy to advice advance agent acceleration while additionally befitting things bland and quiet central the cabin.

Gasoline-engine Colorado models can be had in Extended Cab or Crew Cab versions, while the new Agent is alone offered in Crew Cab anatomy (you can accept amid two altered box lengths, though).

Ultimately, though, the Colorado doesn’t absolutely alive up to its aggravate of alms easier maneuverability. The Colorado is absolutely not as advanced and bulky as a full-size truck—at atomic than the full-size barter that best bodies order—but it’s account because that the short-bed Colorado Agent Crew Cab, the tidiest amalgamation offered in the lineup, is absolutely best than a regular-cab Ram 1500.

Keep in apperception that you get the aforementioned abundant appearance and autogenous accessories as with the blow of the Colorado calendar here—including warm, soft-touch abstracts for abundant of the cabin, and accomplished touch-screen infotainment. The active position is absolutely good, ride affection was decidedly pleasant, and the advanced seats themselves are far bigger than what you’ll acquisition in either the new 2016 Toyota Tacoma or Nissan Frontier.

Colorado Agent models alpha at about $31,090 in abject Work Barter form, up to about $40k in the anatomy we afresh saw and tested. Depending on how you attending at it that’s about $10k added than the access archetypal of the Colorado, with the abject four-cylinder engine, or about $6k over the abject V-6 Colorado WT.

Would we accept the Colorado Diesel, which is due to go on auction backward this year, over the V-6? In an instant, yes. If you plan to about never backpack a load, and you’re application the Colorado mainly for commuting and some ablaze weekend hauling, go with the basal four-cylinder model; but for added towing and carriage needs, splurge a little bit and this stocky-yet-fuel-efficient agent can’t be beat.
