The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado 2WD Duramax diesel pickup sees its fuel efficiency drop by 8% for the new model year. As you can see from the EPA's official chart above. There is no listing for the 4x4 Colorado Duramax for 2019 yet. It may not be ready yet, or there may be a change in what GM is planning to offer. We suspect the former.
Coincidental to this discovery, our own Zane Merva is presently surrounded by GM employees who work specifically for the truck division. He is at the media launch for the new Silverado in the Western U.S. We have asked Zane if he might do some snooping and see if he can find out what happened for this model year. We looked closely at the fuel economy numbers for the various gasoline offerings in the Colorado line and none of those change for the new model year.
We'd like to tip our hat to the Bozi Tatarevic who posted a tweet on this subject this week.

My 2015 Z71 Colorado has been running great - no issues... until about a week ago. The cargo light has begun coming on when I start the truck, and usually stays on until the end of my trip when I turn the vehicle off. Other times it may stay on for a while, then go off. The dashboard switch is "off" and no customization work has been done to the truck electrical. Anyone have any ideas how to correct this and have the light return to operating as intended?
I have an io3 in a 2016 Colorado. It either starts up well in the morning or repeatedly reboots. Rebooting has lasted up to 2 days before. It has been reprogrammed and more recently the control panel replaced. Rebooting is down to about 2 days a week and can last up to 15 minutes. It can end on the radio screen, the home screen or the clock only. It can reset nothing, reset the clock, and/ or reset the station presets. Lately, it's just reset the clock. Any help is appreciated. Dealer is currently waiting for an answer from GM. What could be wrong?
Update: Dealer received word from GM. This is a known problem with no known fix. No further attempt at repair.
I'm looking into replacing my aging 2002 Silverado Z71 with a new Canyon or Colorado, I'm eyeballing two at my local dealership that come with 15% cashback plus a few discounts. Options-wise they're very similar, one an extended cab Colorado Redline and the other a crew cab short box Canyon, 4x4s and V6s both.
I've taken them for a test drive, and really liked how they drove-I found them both really comfortable, and they were (At least from my perspective) really pleasant to drive on the highway and handled great to drive around. But for those that have had one for a while, how are they to live with? I've seen issues with the 8-speed transmissions, but aside from that are there any known problems that are popping up with these trucks?
