2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel Review
Oct 06, 2015 - 4:01 PM - by

There is no question that the introduction of GMís redesigned midsize pickups made a splash in the segment, attracting customers back to smaller trucks.

And not just GM is benefitting. The entire U.S. midsize pickup segment is up about 49 percent year-over-year in 2015, a kickstart that began when the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon came to town.

But even though GMís trucks lay claim to segment-best towing, payload and fuel economy numbers, the Colorado and Canyon combined still havenít outsold the Toyota Tacoma in any single month since they returned. GM is surely hoping that the introduction of the segmentís only small diesel engine will help turn that tide with the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel.

The engine in question is a 2.8-liter Duramax diesel that is built in Thailand and is already fitted in international versions of the truck. It cranks out 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm here in the U.S. Thatís more twist than what is found in the Silverado V6 and just 14 lb-ft shy of whatís found in the 5.3-liter V8 from Chevyís half-tons. It also outclasses its biggest rival, the V6-powered Tacoma, by 104 lb-ft, clearly setting itself apart.

If youíre interested in my thoughts on the interior, bed or other facets of this truck, check out one of my many reviews on the gas-powered Colorado or Canyon. The reason youíre here is the diesel, so letís talk diesel.

2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty Uses Aluminum to Shed 350 LBS
Sep 24, 2015 - 10:43 AM - by

The 2017 Ford F-Series Super Duty has been introduced as the toughest, smartest, most capable Super Duty truck lineup ever.

Like the 2015 Ford F-150, the new F-Series Super Duty has turned to an aluminum body to help shed up to 350 pounds on the heavy-duty truck. It marks the first time that the Super Duty body uses military-grade aluminum alloy, which Ford claims is more dent- and ding-resistant than the outgoing steel body and is not subject to red rust corrosion.

The fully boxed frame consists of more than 95-percent high-strength steel, making it up to 24 times stiffer than the previous frame, enabling the most towing and hauling capacity ever delivered by Super Duty.

Ford also highlighted the 16 segment-first new features that help towing easier and more efficient than ever. Some of those features include all-new advanced coaching and camera technology, LED lighting and adaptive cruise control. As many as seven cameras help drivers see more angles and monitor conditions around the truck, while a center high-mounted stop lamp camera gives visibility into the cargo box. There is also a 360-degree camera system that uses four digital, high-definition cameras for a birdís-eye view surrounding the truck.

Other firsts for the F-Series Super Duty include a factory-available trailer camera that can be attached to a trailer for enhanced visibility while backing up. Customers will also benefit from a segment-first, in-cab trailer tire pressure monitoring system.

Numerous driver-assist technologies will be available on the F-Series Super Duty including SYNC 3, Blind Spot Information System with trailer tow, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support.

Available powertrains include the second-generation Ford 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 diesel, 6.8-liter V10 gasoline or 6.2-liter V8
