Speaking to Chevrolet, the brand says it will be keeping a close eye on the market, seeing how consumers react to the 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine in the 2016 Colorado. Why? Because the market is going to dictate if we see the fantastic oil burner find its way into other vehicle applications across the Chevrolet lineup.
Specifically, Chevrolet called it a “testbed” for future applications, saying it “listens” to what its customers are yearning for.
We were able to achieve over 30 mpg with the quiet, comfortable Duramax, and we think the engine would be a nice fit for a few other Chevrolet products.
It’s up to you, now. We all asked for it, and now it’s nearly here, and its quite good. If you’d like to see the 2.8-liter Duramax find its way into other vehicles, you best pony up and purchase a diesel-powered 2016 Colorado.
Besides, you won’t be disappointed in the engines capability, or refinement.
