Report: General Motors to offer Duramax turbodiesel four-bangers for GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado

AutomotiveNews reports that General Motors will be offering diesel burners for their up and coming Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon mid-sized pickups, due sometime next year. This is apparently in an effort to increase the use of diesel-powered automobiles to help increase fuel economy.

It has long been proven that diesel engines provide the torque that utilitarian pickup drivers, while returning significantly higher fuel economy figures over their gasoline counterparts.

Automakers of pickup trucks, like Nissan and General Motors, are now jumping on this bandwagon, which is fine by all means. The new GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado pickups will apparently get new 2.5L and 2.8L Duramax turbodiesel four-bangers, which will find their way in foreign-market variants as well. The US-destined diesels will appear with the fall 2014 launch of the pickups.
