Chevrolet Colorado is America's Most Fuel-Efficient Pickup Truck
  • Chevrolet Colorado wins title of the most fuel-efficient pick-up truck!

Chevrolet’s pick-up wrestled the distinction from previous record holder Fiat Chrysler's truck division, Ram.

The bragging right to the most fuel-efficient pickup has been snatched by Chevrolet. The Chevrolet Colorado has been named the most fuel efficient pick-up vehicle on the road. Previously the title was held by the Fiat Chrysler pick-up truck Ram. Chevrolet beat up Fiat in the race of the most fuel-efficient pick-up and came out victorious.

The Chevrolet Colorado is the new diesel-powered version of its 2016 midsize pickup. The Chevrolet Colorado offers 31 miles per gallon on the highway. The mileage is 29 mpg more than offered by Ram and its diesel engine. Chevrolet has the 29 mpg in its four-wheel-drive version.

The truck Colorado by Chevrolet is however small in size when compared to Ram. The Ram 1500 is a full-size truck, while the Colorado is a sort of a corporate cousin. The GMC canyon is on the same lines as the Colorado on terms of size.

Despite its slightly smaller size the Chevrolet Colorado can tow 7,700 pounds of weight. The Chevrolet Colorado has been equipped with a 2.8-liter Duramax turbo-diesel engine. The Colorado engine can generate up to 181 horsepower. The Colorado also features a six-speed automatic transmission. 

The Colorado Duramax pick-up is being called a league of its own by Chevrolet. Sandor Piszar is the director of Chevrolet truck marketing. According to Piszar the gas models in Colorado had already led the segment when it came to fuel efficiency. 

“The Colorado Duramax diesel is in a league of its own,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet Truck Marketing. “Colorado’s gas models already led the segment in fuel efficiency, and the new diesel – which no other non-GM competitor offers on a midsize truck – gives customers even greater freedom to go where they want with fewer fill-ups.”
