CFans Exclusive: V8 Power For The Colorado/Canyon
Yes folks, The Nation's #1 Colorado/Canyon Forum would like to share some groundbreaking news with you!
Preliminary reports from our inside sources have concluded that a V8 option will be available in the Colorado and Canyon pickups for the 2008 model year!
Yes folks, you've heard it first - right here at ColoradoFans.com!
Here's the news we received as of Wednesday, June 6th. If all goes according to plan, the LH8 5.3 Litre V8 will be available in both extended cab and crew cab models sometime in January or February of 2008. Looks like the GMT 355's are going to have a 2008 1/2 model. This powertrain option will only be available in an automatic, but who cares......it is supposedly putting out the numbers as follows:
Horespower: 310 bhp
Torque: 345 ft/lbs.
However, information on the transmission type is still in question.
In addition, the ZQ8 option will again be available with this combination, but the Xtreme model has been shelved for the time being. Does this elude to a possible Colorado SS in our future!?
We will provide more information on this subject as we receive it!
This engine option should put our trucks right at the top of the mid-size class performance category! Stay Tuned! :D
