Chevrolet came, saw and conquered two out of three award categories at the coveted Motor Trend Car and Truck of the Year competitions. While the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro held the fort down of the car side of things, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado was busy bringing home a consecutive win.
Last year, the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado was named Truck of the Year, upsetting the newly-introduced, all-aluminum Ford F-150. This year, the 2016 Colorado still fended off competitors bringing home the golden calipers once more.
The major play for the 2016 Colorado’s repeat win was the introduction of the 2.8-liter Duramax turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine. The powerplant was praised for its refinement, 7,700-pound towing capacity and 31 mpg on the highway, with a combined average of 25 mpg.
We’d imagine morale is quite high as Chevrolet storms into the 2015 Los Angles Auto Show this week, and we offer our sincere congratulations to the bowtie brand for taking home two important awards.
