Production of the new 2021 Chevy Colorado and 2021 GMC Canyon trucks has been underway since late June this year. After a slight delay, we’re finally excited to announce that the updated diesel version of the Chevy Colorado pickup has arrived here at Atzenhoffer Chevrolet.
These American-made trucks are being assembled in Missouri at the Wentzville GM plant. This makes the Colorado and Canyon models the first GM vehicles for the 2021 model year to be built in the US. Although orders for the diesel variants of these trucks were slightly delayed, the EPA and CARB have certified the engine and GM truck fans are welcome to claim their diesel 2021 model now.
We can’t wait to include the 2021 diesel Colorado and Canyon on our lot, especially after a shift in production made it seem like this engine might be out of rotation. Earlier in the year, Chevy stepped back from the domestic market in Thailand, which is the location that manufactured the turbo diesel 2.8-liter inline four-cylinder LWN Duramax® engine. Fortunately, Chevy had plans to continue making the engine for new vehicles, despite this change, and we’ll enjoy its balance of power and efficiency in the upcoming mid-size models.
Stop by Atzenhoffer Chevrolet to test-drive the 2021 Colorado for yourself.
