Hey all! I ordered a 2022 Canyon AT4 Diesel back at the end of September. My dealer today let me know we finally have a build date of the end of March.
I'm in no rush for the truck, so I don't mind the wait...but if they are discontinuing the 2.8l in 2023, my guess is that the window to order a diesel may be closing fast?

He doesn't know. It's all about the chips. I met a lady while Halloween camping who liked my Colorado/Escape 5.0 TA combo. Turns out, she works on the Wentzville line. She said that they have ~16,000 waiting on those chips, and that the rigs are going to be recycled if not ready for sale by years end. She bemoaned the fact that the line workers couldn't buy them for $1,000 each, tow them to their driveways, and wait for the chips.

I don't know if this was all true, but I do believe that it's a mess over there, and your dealer is feeding you a line of ****. They self select to do just that...

Interesting. The Chevy S10 LTZ which is the south american version of the Colorado. These trucks have the 2.8 Duramax with no DEF system. The ECU tune from the factory is 200hp and 385 FP torque. I always hammer it and I average 10 to 12 KM per liter. 25 to 28mpg. These trucks are readily available. No supply issues. These small to mid size diesel pickups are hot sellers in Brasil. No way Chevy will stop production of the 2.8 diesel in south america for at least 10 more years. Interesting how all these supply problems are only in the USA. Wonder whats going on in the background to really cause all the problems in USA.
