Since this version was launched last year, we expect that 2017 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel will continue in the pretty much same way. It is a version of this popular truck, which came originally back in 2004. Current model is in its second generation, which was launched in 2012. We already saw few modifications so far, and this is the newest one. Besides diesel powertrain, this model is pretty much the same as petrol-powered variants. It rides on the same platform, have same look, comes with pretty much same features etc. As we already mentioned, it came last year. So, we don’t believe that company is going to make some modifications for the 2017 Colorado Diesel.
