File this under the 'long stretch' folder, Motor Trend is reporting that the upcoming Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon could be coming with a diesel engine. A source tells Motor Trend that the plant where the all-new Colorado/Canyon midsize truck will be built for the U.S. is currently tooling up a line to build diesel engines.
The engine could be one of two diesels offered at the moment: a 2.5L with 150 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, or a 2.8L with 180 horsepower and either 324 pound-feet with a manual and 346 pound-feet with an automatic.
