I speak as the owner of a 460 ci 1994 Ford F-250 4×4. It’s way too much truck for 99 percent of what I do. But it was my dad’s truck, so it’s not going anywhere–and the big block torque is awesome. But the big block thirst? That’s less awesome.
The 2016 Chevy Colorado diesel is all the truck you need. If you’re an enthusiast who wants to tow fast things without sucking down all the petroleum in existence every weekend (that’s what the race car is for, right?) then this is your ticket.
