Those looking for a hard-working American-made diesel-powered pickup truck have often considered Chevrolet. Under the U.S. automobile manufacturer General Motors, Chevrolet has provided North America with reliable pickups for generations. While undergoing many design styles and model names, the most modern version of the Chevrolet truck is the Chevrolet Colorado. The successors of the Chevrolet S-10, the Chevrolet Colorado, and its counterpart, the GMC Canyon, have been in production since the 2004 model year. The vehicle was a success from its debut, and after many years on the market, the Chevrolet Colorado has won Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year award twice.
The first generation diesel Chevrolet Colorado
The Chevrolet Colorado and its GMC twin were designed in collaboration with Isuzu; the latter of which offers the Isuzu I-Series light-duty pickup. The platform for the design of these multiple models was based on the Hummer H3. The Chevrolet Colorado was available in multiple styles and configurations upon release. Diesel Chevrolet Colorado drivers had the choice between front-wheel and all-wheel drive as well as automatic or manual transmission. Meanwhile, the cab of these trucks came in a standard two-door size, an extended option or a four-door crew-cab model.
The second generation diesel Chevrolet Colorado
The second generation Chevrolet Colorado was introduced in 2011 and is still available despite an all-new third generation model recently being released for the 2023 model year. Many of the options of the first generation Chevrolet Colorado have remained in the lineup. In 2016, a 2.8-litre Duramax turbodiesel engine was added to the pickup, which is the first time this engine was offered in its class in American markets.
