Damn, you beat me to it.
Trying to get this to the news section while watching the video. If people (not the EPA) get 32 MPG for a 2wd, there may no longer be a need for the Colorado 2.8 Duramax. Yes, I know, some buyers might not want a full-size truck & want something smaller. But, for marginally more money, you'd get a roomier truck, with more HP/torque, more towing capability & equal FE.
RAM and FORD TOTALLY OWNED :-)
LD truck diesel segment is about driveability and PRICE more like gas V8 and economy BETTER than a 4cyl gas mid size.

Shut your mouth... he said they hit 44mpg on a short loop.... holy crap
When is GM going to provide a 4WD CREW CAB (you know the ones that most buyers actually purchase) is given to testers for MPG and performance????
At least a 2WD version.
Only performance and MPG numbers that matter are the ones the most popular variant delivers, until then all numbers need to have an Asterisk next to them.
This is quite respectable.
Well... It looks solid in RST form for sure. I can't wait to drive one but at around $47,000 OTD it's going to be out of my reach.
I really need to expand my business - I want one of these but really don't have a use for one just yet.
I’ll just add that Ford’s baby all ally 2.0 Panther Diesel makes up to 215 Hp and 370 lb ft, so even a five cylinder 2.5 diesel would make around 270 Hp and 465 lb ft....diesels have lots more efficiency to come now that engineers have worked out that lower combustion temps give fewer emissions
