Edelbrock-Supercharged Chevy Colorado Review on Truck Trend Network

Chevrolet Colorado V6 with Edelbrock Supercharger

One of the popular discussions on Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon forum boards has many owners of this mid-size pickup at odds over which engine to choose: the “best-in-class” 3.6L V6 or the four-cylinder Duramax 2.8L Turbo-Diesel. There are solid arguments on both sides of the debate and choosing one engine over the other is not an easy choice. If you’re towing a trailer and want torque with better highway fuel economy you might be considering the turbo-diesel. For everything else including daily driving, hauling, cost, passing power and all-around spirited performance driving, the V6 is the hands-down favorite choice. Still, neither one of these engines offers anything close to V8 performance, something that Colorado and Canyon fans miss.
