2.8L Duramax with a tune

Recommended Posts

Just curious, I wonder if this motor will hit 250hp/400tq with a good tune. I know the bigger diesels get impressive gains with tuners so I hope it means the same possibility for this motor! What does everyone think?

Knowing gm, this motor will be nannied to the teeth so a tune will unlock a monster. But this will lead me to assume it will get excellent gas mileage. We will see!

Im torn between getting this or a full-size...currently this truck would suit me fine I just love the power and room of a full size. But all the new GM trucks look really good. I want good efficiency and power but kinda turned off by the higher diesel cost...will have to weigh it out.

If you drive a diesel you'll be able to justify it!

I'm sure nick at Duramaxtuner will get his hands on one of these ASAP.

If I do decide on a Colorado, dont know if I have the patience to wait for the diesel...and also I am kinda hoping for a more upscale interior on these trucks...hope they decide to do an LTZ version....I mean dont they have an LTZ sonic?

I can't really imagine them making an LTZ.. Too small of a market for it. I don't think many of the small truck buyers are in the market for a luxury small truck

I guess thats why they make a GMC version for a more upscale Interior...I like the sporty look of the Colorado over the Canyon though.

You will probably be able to get a well packaged Colorado with many of the K2 options

Considering it will come standard with around 375 ft. Lbs of torque, 400 will be nothing. Now 500 is what I am wondering.
