For 2016, GM made some big waves in the light duty diesel market by introducing their first late model, small displacement diesel in a midsize pickup. Yes, we understand the diesel LUV was truly Chevy's first go, but again, we're talking about late model vehicles.Upon its release, it was the only diesel option in this segment as the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel is considered a fullsize, where the Canyon and Colorado models are slated to compete more against the Toyota Tacomas and Nissan Frontier type of vehicles.The "Baby Duramax" as many are calling it, features an inline, four cylinder arrangement boasting 181 horsepower and 369 foot pounds of torque.No, this isn't going to win you any races, but where the payoff lies is the rated 31 highway MPG's.
Many of the specifications of this 2.8L are quite similar to that of the larger displacement diesels, featuring such components as a variable geometry turbo (VGT), high pressure, common rail fuel system, six speed automatic transmission (6L50 Hydra-Matic), and many other items.
Now, the question at hand, what can you benefit from the aftermarket?How about added power to get you at least over that 200 rear wheel horsepower mark?How about even better fuel economy or added lift for larger tire fitment?If you are unsure of what parts are right for you, don't hesitate to give us a call and we would be happy to assist.
Products in this section are designed to work on 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 2.8L GM Duramax equipped Canyon and Colorado trucks unless otherwise noted.
