Another first drive article (notice the 31.6 average fuel economy...but only on one drive hah!):

2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel First Drive

edit: added picture and noticed 632 miles. 31.6 is probably pretty real for 632 miles, right?

Wink North American Diesel Colorado first drive.

Truck Trend (trucktrend.com) has posted a first drive of the diesel Colorado. I did a quick search and didn't see where any one had posted this. Its not the most in-depth article, but it's a start.

TFL released a towing video for those that haven't seen it (towing 5600 lbs):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uu22AS5Lhj8

Only thing really new I captured here that I didn't realize is the Exhaust Brake button is dual purpose in that it also enables tow mode. So it sounds like you can't have one or the other.

7 facts here. Maybe I've been living under a rock, but they confirm that the Colorado Diesel DOES have Auto 4x4. I had read some speculation in the past, but this is the first I've seen it confirmed.... I went with the Canyon partially to get this feature so that' certainly interesting.
