Now I just have to wait for the diesel version to come out.Hopefully they'll offer a V-6 turbo.

Well, GM comes out with the smaller Duratech V8 for the 1500 series trucks this coming year, but I doubt a V6 diesel will arrive anytime soon for the mid-size. Likely if a diesel does find its way to the Colorado/Canyon, it will be an Isuzu 4-cylinder. Isuzu is probably the biggest maker of small diesel engines and has some pretty powerful diesels for 4-cylinder. Back when the S10's came out, as with Ford Ranger's, there was some diesels available but Americans showed little interest and they were dropped. A friend drove a Chevy Chevette diesel for a parts store back in the 1980's and that thing would chirp the tires.

I know they'll come out with a small diesel,but not sure if it will be an Izsuzu,as they will likely be suppling Toyota.
I bought my wife the Jeep Liberty diesel last year,and it's a neck snapper for sure.Plus we get 30+mpg.Not bad for a 2 ton 4X4.I'll wait and see whats offered for 09/10.
#16 of 60 CHEV COLORADO DIESEL AVAILABLE NOW
Oct 04, 2007 (11:37 pm)
The Chev Colorado diesel is a 4 cylinder. There are 2 versions, both turbocharged and intercooled. The smaller is 2.5 liters but is not offered with an automatic. The bigger is 3 liters, also 4 cyl. The power rating for 2007 models is boosted from previous years. Now it ( 3 L ) is 162 HP and 265 foot pounds of torque. The diesels were offered when the new truck first came out in Asia in 2003. The Colorado was designed to be an Isuzu truck first then Chev & GMC used the same truck. They are referred to as one ton trucks but they only haul about 1600 pounds in Asia. Now for a very big treat. You all must promise to put me on your Christmas list, OK? This is a link to the GM website in Australia. Forget what you read about the gas engines. They use the same diesels. This promo video is about 11 minutes long. It takes about 30 seconds to boot in on my high speed. If you want one of these diesel colorado's with the 4 doors, auto and air, i can bring them here if you own a farm or a mine or if you don't mind, Panama licence plates. they will be about $26,000.

There is the American looking Isuzu p/u, and the Asian looking Isuzu p/u which has been out at the beginning as well. They are both sharing the same bodies with the Americans, accept the Asian version has the best front end of the four including Canyon & Colorado. It looks somewhat Toyota like. The Isuzu Asian one is called I/Max or something like that.
This truck is probably not legal here emission wise to get legally licensed not to mention the warranty would probably be void.
