I have a 2017 z71, CCLB, 80,000 km’s. No issues except for typical recalls. Lifetime average of 9.8 L/100 km’s. Used for city driving, towing the holiday trailer and the odd trip down the west coast.

i bought a left over 2018 in nov 2019.its a red 4x4 longbed. it has 15,000 miles on it now and has been flawless. up to 32 mpg on highway and when towing a 18' enclosed motorcycle trailer loaded; it gets 18-19 mpg.strangely it gets better mileage towing in the mountains than on flat ground.i think the reason is it puts out so much torque it doesnt downshift or strain going up mountains and mostly free wheels going down them.resulting in better mileage than on flat ground. would like to see tow mirrors and i find the knob on the dash for the 4x4 has to be kept in view as your knee easily moves it on entry and exit. i am 6'; 195lbs not big nor small.i find it pretty comfortable.i find compared to full size gas rams, and gm's i have had;my fuel bill is about cut in half( NICE)

I bought a 2020 3 months ago and can't seem to get to like it. It is a nice looking truck with the Trail Runner package, just can't seem to get near the sticker MPGs, while coming from my previous gas Tacoma the acceleration is sluggish. I will keep it over the summer to at least get some payback on the new car depreciation, but planning to sell in the fall and get another Tacoma. I also think it is BS they sell these with the front air dam and expect folks to actually go off road...

As I follow up, since the Colorado diesel looks to be discontinued after 2020, do folks think that will be better or worse on re-sale values?

It's slated to built through year 2023. Diesels are not designed to be fast they're designed to be strong. They historically have always brought more at resale then a gas version of the same vehicle. I am curios as to what type of driving you do. For the most part if you short hop all the time the mileage will almost be no different then any other vehicle. If you cruise on the hwy then it will do well. I typically get at 70mph about 33mpg and at 80 about 28. Are your numbers within that range?

My past Toyota PU was in the area of 15 to 16 no matter what type of driving I did so I am pleased with the numbers I am seeing.

If you bought it for resale value, then you may want to rethink. Too much electronic on these new vehicle to be any good one it add mileage and age. Electronic become dated as soon as the next model come out. The programming of my 2017 was obsolete when the 2018 came out. And it will many years if not decades before you can think of if it will make it on the classic list.

With that being said, get what make you happy and drive it like you stole it.
