  1. This is more the type of feedback I was looking for. I'm not in a rush necesarily, more in the planning stages. With as old as my 2500 is, I'm guessing the Canyon will probably have better brakes anyway, haha. Honestly though, I don't pull the trailer often; only about 10 to 15 race weekends a year. My wife and I have considered getting a small camper as well though. Do you think the Canyon would handle something like that? Maybe a Streamline or something similar.

  2. That is exactly why I am confused. They have very similar vehicle weights and towing capacities as quoted above from both specification pages. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  3. I'm not typically a big truck person but I do have an old 1997 Chevy 2500HD diesel that I use to pull an enclosed car trailer. My wife and I are considering the purchase of a new truck and I am thinking of replacing the 2500 with a new Colorado diesel 4x4. Looking at the specifications that I can find, it seems like these are comparable platforms. Could someone else please chime in and let me know your thoughts. 1997 Chevy 2500 V-8 Diesel Specs MPG: 15 city / 18 highway Horsepower: 180 hp @ 3,400 rpm Torque: 385 ft-lbf @ 1,800 rpm Towing capacity: 6,500 lbs Engine: 6.5 L V8 diesel Curb weight: 4,299 lbs Payload: 2,901 lbs Dimensions: 213″ L x 77″ W x 71-76″ H 2019 Chevy Colorado Turbo 4 Diesel Specs MPG: 20 city / 30 highway Horsepower: 181 hp @ 3,400 rpm Torque: 369 ft-lbf @ 2,000 rpm Towing capacity: 6,700 lbs Engine: 2.8 L 4-cylinder diesel Curb weight: 4,030 lbs Dimensions: 212-225″ L x 74-77″ W x 71-72″ H I guess one thing I am trying to figure out is how a little four cylinder diesel can keep up with a V-8. I know that technology has changed a lot in 20 years, but I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
