Chevrolet Colorado Named Most Fuel Efficient Pickup in America

The Environmental Protection Agency has issued a Certificate of Conformity for the Chevrolet Colorado Duramax diesel confirming the Colorado as the most fuel efficient pickup in America.

Achieving an estimated 31 mpg highway fuel economy with the two-wheel drive with the Duramax turbo-diesel and 29 mpg for the four-wheel drive diesel, the certificate confirms that with the Colorado’s 21-gallon fuel tank, the 2WD model offers an estimated maximum highway range of 651 miles per tank.

The 2016 Colorado diesel 2WD offers an EPA estimated 22 mpg city and 25 mpg combined. The 4WD model offers an EPA estimated 20 mpg city and 23 mpg combined.

 

The Colorado diesel goes on sale this fall, offered in LT and Z71 Crew Cab models, with 2WD or 4WD. Pricing for the diesel engine option is $3,730 more than a comparably equipped 3.6L V-6 model.
