2016 Colorado diesel

The 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Diesel Is The Most Efficient Pickup Truck

The Chevrolet Colorado was named the Motor Trend Truck of the Year last year. And it has been recently announced that the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado has won the award yet again this year.

There’s no doubt that one of the reasons for all the attention this year is the addition of a highly efficient diesel option. It’s an engine so efficient in fact that it gives the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado the prestigious title of most fuel-efficient pickup truck sold in the US.

Versatility is largely what helped the Colorado rise to the top of the market. Part and parcel of that versatility had to do with great options. This new option is a 2.8-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine, delivering 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. In the two-wheel drive version, the engine helps the Colorado deliver the best-in-class fuel economy at 31 mpg on the highway.

As an article in CNET notes, equipped with a 21-gallon tank, this means that the Chevrolet Colorado diesel can go 651 miles on a tank. Now that’s a luxury that not a lot of truck owners have ever experienced. And now they can, thanks to Chevrolet ingenuity!

Things to Do After Thanksgiving

So you made your famous mac n’ cheese. It was a hit. You’ve had to loosen your belt a little bit to make more room for all of the turkey and dressing you just had. Thanksgiving dinner is over and you are looking at an evening of dozing off to the TV. Why not get out and have a little adventure?

Need some ideas? We’ve compiled a list of fun things to do after Thanksgiving dinner…

# 1 – Do something outdoors. It will probably be dark by the time you finish your meal so have a bonfire, roast some s’mores, and tell scary stories.

# 2 – Taking in a movie at the cinema after Thanksgiving dinner is almost an American tradition at this point. Why not be a part of this beautiful tradition? Film studios often release their best films towards the end of the year.

# 3 – Make all of your guests help put up Christmas decorations. We agree, this may seem a little exploitative, but it might surprise you how willing they are to help! Plus, getting the rusty ladder out and putting up some Christmas lights can easily add a little suspense to the evening, especially if you mix up an early batch of eggnog.

# 4 – Throw a game night! Board games for the youngsters and games of chance for the adults.

The most important part of whatever you do after Thanksgiving dinner is to have fun and include the whole family!
