My 2016 Colorado Diesel

Hey guys,

This is a bit of a carry over from the Colorado/Canyon forum, but I have spent much more time on this forum. I traded in my 2015 Sierra 2500 Denali Diesel this past friday on a 16 Colorado with the Duramax. I am very very happy with the new truck.

I had the dealer add a Pro Comp Nitro kit to the truck which brought the front end up about 2.5" and the rear up an inch. They tinted the front 2 windows and I swapped out the stock tires for the BF Goodrich KO2 in 265/70/17.







I am a diesel fan, didnt really need a 3/4 ton, but there werent really many options out there until this truck came along. I am very happy about the switch. Fuel economy is significantly better than my 2500.

Thought I would share it with you guys here.

Thanks,

Kyle

Looks good. How much was it if yo don't mind? I may be getting a vehicle allotment at work and I'm leaning heavy towards the Colorado with the diesel. I need more mpg's and I'll still have my 2500HD for any heavy lifting.

They are the stock wheels for a Z71. I like them as well. I am more a factory wheel guy than aftermarket, so I was glad to retain them with the help of some beefier rubber.

With regard to pricing, this one's MSRP was just under $41k. I saw a lot of guys on the forum saying that was a lot of money for a small truck. Size wise, they aren't much smaller than the full size trucks. I think $41k is a deal compared to the $67k MSRP on the Denali I traded in on it.

This is a great truck. I highly recommend it.

After a few tanks would you be willing to report some fuel mileage results?

I have almost 1,000 miles on it already and running either 85 or stop and go traffic, I am in the upper 24mpg range. I will definitely have tanks that I get over 30mpg out of.

Hey would you let us know how it pulls after you hook a trailer up to it? I'd like to make sure it's going to pull a four place snowmobile trailer.
