It might sound strange why Chevrolet chose to develop uprated engines for the Colorado when its pickup is just two years old in its latest generation. Even funnier is the fact that the US brand has an engine production facility in Thailand that should actually guarantee Thais get the latest in diesel technology at every point in time.
