In the coming months we plan to get behind the wheel of arguably Chevrolet’s most ambitious mid-size truck offering to date, the 2016 Colorado powered by a 2.8-liter turbo-diesel Duramax engine. Even with that new and exciting engine option looming on the horizon, Chevrolet has announced two special edition Colorados that will be offered in the 2016 lineup as well.

Prescott, Ariz. (June 2015) – Classic GMC/Chevrolet pickups, vans, and SUVs are some of the most venerable workhorses ever built. Millions of these sturdy rigs were manufactured between 1962-1995, and many still remain in service. These older trucks have always been great platforms for both business and pleasure. With the limitless possibilities for upgrading stout GM powerplants, their stock clutches (probably tired already) quickly run out of talent. Centerforce now has a premium street/track/trail solution in kit form: The Centerforce Dual Friction System (P/N KDF240916).

Last year, more than 40,000 active-duty, reserves, retired and veteran service members used the discount to purchase vehicles from eligible GM brands, including veteran Kathryn Scott of Reidsville, Ga. who bought a new GMC Terrain.
BEREA, Ohio – To improve the performance and fuel economy of the redesigned 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and GMC Yukon, CORSA(r) Performance has engineered a new cat-back exhaust system for the 5.3L V8 engine of these full size SUVs. A leader in aftermarket performance exhaust technology, CORSA systems are designed to create a quicker, more efficient path for exhaust gases to escape, allowing the engine to “breathe” better, so spent fuel and air exit the combustion chambers faster. CORSA systems are crafted using a mandrel bend process for a smoother pipe surface and a constant diameter through the bend for less resistance. CORSA test results show that the new Tahoe/Yukon system provides a 53.71 percent improvement in airflow and weighs seven pounds less than the stock system.
