GM also will offer a 2.8-liter Duramax turbodiesel, which has been in use on the global Colorado since its launch. The diesel will be introduced for the 2016 model year, about one year after the Colorado's initial launch.
While diesel-powered autos remain far more popular in other parts of the world, they’re finally beginning catching on here in the U.S., fueled by several new models debuting for 2014 from automakers including Chevrolet, Jeep, Ram, Mazda, Audi and BMW.
A record six diesels are in this year’s competition. WardsAuto editors are driving 45 vehicles with all-new or redesigned engines or propulsion systems. Among the nominees, 20 are turbocharged and three are supercharged.
