Thanks for letting me be a part of your new site. I just happened to stumble upon it searching for related Colorado/Canyon diesel topics. I have a GMC Canyon All Terrain on order up here in Canada, it was placed in later November. No build date yet and not expecting one for quite awhile as my friends from the south will be looked after first...lol
I previously owned a 2011 Ford F150 Limited which I purchased new, loved the truck but absolutely brutal on fuel. Before that it was a 2005 Ford F150 Lariet which was a great truck also.
I looked into this GMC Canyon diesel for the main reason of towing, I drag race a bike and have an enclosed trailer. The combined weight was nothing for the 6.2liter Ford but fuel economy was not there. That's why I am going to try this new mid size Canyon out. Fits the bill perfectly.

Hey all. I have had a '04 diesel Jetta and have been waiting for a smaller sized diesel truck to come on the market. I am kinda steering toward the Colorado over the Canyon.

Welcome to the site @dieselme. We got to drive the Canyon a couple of weeks ago. Check out what we thought and post up if you have any questions.

Welcome to the site! Sounds like you are a believer in the Diesel... gotta love the torque. Wish they didn't tax the Diesel so much :(

Love diesels....too bad VW and others have blemished the name a bit. Right now here in northeast GA. diesel is cheaper than RUG a many places.

Great to have a site like this. I love diesels too. I have a 2012 VW jetta sportwagen TDI. -The infamous dirty diesel with on board emission-cheating software. They may be buying it back from me. It's a great car, basically it just pollutes more than they said it did. Those lying cheaters! I had an '09 Chevy trailblazer that I used to pull a little pop-up tent trailer that I have. It...went away with my ex and I now need something else for work (Architecture) camping and adventuring. I pre ordered a Diesel Colorado which is slated to be here by my birthday in a week. Very excited!

Florida diesel enthusiast; needed a smaller diesel truck than my 2500 HD and waited for a long time for the GMC release; bought a white SLT /4WD/longbed on April 14 and it's a great truck. Tuned with duramaxtuner.com, leveled, 32s and waiting for more aftermarket upgrades. Thanks for creating the site.

Another new guy here. I posted a thread in the introduction forum and it's waiting for moderator approval. I've owned several 3/4 & 1 ton trucks in my life and a few of them diesels. I recently sold a 2005 LLY CCSB 4x4 and today I bought a Canyon CCSB 4x4 SLT with the little duramax.

Thanks for managing, maintaining and making your site available. I purchased 2016 Chevy Colorado Z71 Crew Cab Short Box Duramax Diesel November 28th, 2016. I have over 5,000 plus miles on it already, all touring, back country, vacation etc. miles. I still use my old beater (98 Ford Explorer) around town and for High School parking lots and save the Duramax for the road trips. My long term interest in this investment is quality over time (and reputation of Toyota Tacoma). Given the Diesel engine new to US and released in 2016, I am taking the risk of being an early owner / tester of new technology. So keeping an eye out for any kind of major / minor technical glitches, quality issues, major components, etc. So far, no issues, love this vehicle, runs, performs, fun to drive, great mileage, etc. So far, fantastic!

There is a thread in General Discussion about Show us what you're Towing I think it is called. Some guys towing UTV's and mud trucks with these. I had my wife take our Canyon and go get 2,000 lbs. of concrete premix 2 weeks ago with our trailer, which probably weighs 1,000 lbs maybe with no trailer brakes and she said she couldn't tell it was back there. Was probably a 20 mile drive through flat ground and some decent hills too. Just told her to turn on the tow/ haul mode and go. Love the truck so far with 2,000 miles on it.
