Welcome to C'Fans
I run gassers, so others will have to chime in about the dizzle quirks.

I have an 05 LLY one of the best diesels ever. I waited to see if the 16 Colorado would have DEF it did so I got the gasser. I will not buy another diesel until this DEF crap is over.

Love my 16 Colorado duramax for a daily driver coming from an 06 duramax. My last tank hand calculated was 23.1 mpg mostly city/ stop and go rural driving. No long highway trips to boost mileage. On those trips I see low to mid 30s. I wouldn't worry about any of the emissions junk. You can delete it if it's an issue for you or just leave it alone and enjoy your warranty. Either way, they are excellent daily drivers.

I love mine other than the useless door pockets and cup holders lol

I agree with the fact if u get one a full delete is in order.
I don't think my colly will make it to 100k with out the def system leaving me stranded lol

So far it's a great little truck and I enjoy it!

Well I'm glad to hear good things, unfortunately I'll have to leave the emissions on being AZ does testing. Or register it somewhere else. I'm planning on pulling the trigger on one soon though either way.
