The Chevy Colorado was named the Motor Trend Truck of the Year® for 2015. Fast forward a year later, and reminiscent of Groundhog Day, the 2016 Chevy Colorado has once again earned the award, but this year there’s a diesel twist.

The 2016 midsize truck model is available with a 181-horsepower, 2.8-litre inline-four Duramax diesel, making it the only truck in its class (along with the GMC Canyon cousin) to offer such an engine.

Some other reasons cited by reviewers for the back-to-back victories include capability, dynamic performance, and overall driver enjoyment. The truck is engineered to drive small and light, feeling more like a crossover than a truck, and resulting in unusually sharp steering and deft handling.

The Duramax 2.8L Turbo-Diesel engine provides an impressive 181 horsepower. It also offers torque of 369lb/ft, towing capacity of 7,700lbs, and fuel economy of 22 city/31 highway; each rating representing the Best-In-Class.

The cabin of the Duramax is very quiet thanks to added acoustic damping in the dash and engine cover, and a trick piece of engineering that cancels out the engine’s torsional vibrations.

Dubbed “immensely versatile”, the new Duramax delivers best-in-class fuel economy, superb drivability, and superior towing and payload capacity. Definitely worthy of the Motor Trend truck of the Year® title two years running!

Representing the first complete redesign of the Titan since its 2005 inception, the 2016 Nissan Titan® XD Crew Cab is the first in the lineup to feature a 5.0L V8 Cummins® Turbo Diesel engine, providing massive torque, impressive efficiency, and legendary Cummins® reliability.

Canadian market research conducted by Nissan revealed that 7,000 owners of half-ton pickup trucks feel they need a slightly bigger truck for towing, while 7,000 owners of ¾-ton trucks believe they have too much truck for their average load. The redesigned Titan falls in between these two main categories in terms of payload, towing capacities and price.

The Titan® XD has sufficient weight and power, plus heavy duty brakes, to make pulling a heavier trailer almost effortless. It also boasts a removable gooseneck hitch, hydraulic cab mounts, a fully boxed ladder frame with military-grade steel, and an Aisin® 6-speed transmission.

All of these features combine to offer heavy towing capacity with better fuel economy and a more comfortable ride than the average ¾-ton.
