  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel

These are tense times for automakers selling diesels in the United States. In the wake of Volkswagen’s emissions cheating, the EPA announced that it would be more stringent in its testing. All this happened just as GM was supposed to bring its first-ever mid-size diesel pickup to market in the fall. And sure enough, the trucks were delayed. Now, however, the Detroit News is reporting, and GM has confirmed, that the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon diesels are being released to dealers.

2016 Chevrolet Colorado turbocharged 2.8-liter diesel engine

General Motors, which claimed in November that the trucks achieved their EPA certification, has not given a reason for the delay. The trucks are powered by a 2.8-liter Duramax turbocharged four-cylinder diesel. It’s mated to a six-speed automatic and comes as a Crew Cab only. EPA ratings are 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway (two-wheel drive) and 20/29 mpg (four-wheel drive).

The 181-hp diesel churns out 369 lb-ft of torque, which is the best of any Colorado/Canyon engine. Its 7700-pound towing capacity is also tops among its siblings. In our first-drive review of the diesel, we found it to be refined and punchy. Now customers who’ve ordered one finally will be able to see that for themselves.
