Chevrolet is pretty bummed that its new 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine is the only engine available in the 2023 Colorado pickups. And it’s especially so as one of its engineers gives the reasons why it decided to kill the diesel option. Finally, having a diesel engine in the lineup means it’s suitable for most heavy-duty truck enthusiasts, so its omission sends out a certain signal.

Is horsepower and torque better on the Colorado 2.7?

The chief engineer for the Colorado is Nick Katcherian. He recently panned the previous diesel engine and for Muscle Cars & Trucks touted how and why its turbocharged 2.7 liter engine is better. With the numbers he pulls down, he beats the previous diesel engine in all categories.
