Diesel Battle: 2021 Jeep Gladiator vs 2021 Chevrolet Colorado in BC

May 24,2022

If you are searching for a truck that runs on an alternative to conventional gasoline, then you need to take a look at the 2021 Jeep Gladiator. Compared with the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, this diesel powertrain is far superior.   The optional 3.0-litre Ecodiesel V6 motor pushes out 260 hp and an astonishing 442 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the 8-speed automatic transmission and Variable Geometry Turbo technology, you can expect to get around 10.7 L/100 km (22 mpg) in the city and 8.4 L/100 km (28 mpg) on the highway. It can also tow up to 2,948 kg (6,500 lbs) without breaking a sweat.   On the other hand, the Chevy Colorado diesel is a turbocharged 2.8-litre 4-cylinder unit. Smaller and not as powerful, it generates only 181 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Partnered with a 6-speed automatic transmission, you might assume that it would get better mileage. However, this is not the case. It is rated at around 13.1 L/100 km (18 mpg) in the city and 10.7 L/100 km (22 mpg) on the highway. The maximum hauling limit is capped at 2,267 kg (5,000 lbs), which is much lower than the Gladiator as well.   Contact us today to learn more!
