  1. Gasoline

    2nd Gen Chevrolet Colorado Forum / 2015 GMC Canyon
    ^ yes, it all comes from the same place, with different additive packages. Top tier is what’s in the owners manual for the person who posted that thinking this was a ‘premium vs regular’ discussion. Probably less important in a DI motor than old ones since the fuel isn’t cleaning the valves...
  2. Non-Bose audio upgrades with details and question

    2nd Gen Electronics, Audio, and Lighting
    Question below! For anyone else looking into this, here is what I did. So far just speakers, with the intent to add processing and an amp because while speakers alone helped, it wasn’t enough for me. I’m going to put this thread together over a couple days with instructions and pictures...
  3. Leaf Springs

    2nd Gen Tires, Wheels, and Suspension
    I noticed that my 2015 is sitting awfully level... maybe even lower in the back. So I crawled underneath and found W shaped leaf springs. This is on a truck with 55k that has been embarrassingly underworked, with maybe a month total of actually carrying a real load in its life. I know the...
  4. Tire recommendation for 2016 2-wheel dr. for puncture resist and towing

    2nd Gen Tires, Wheels, and Suspension
    That’s what I get for not looking and assuming Chevy would use a popular size. Go figure. Size change may be needed. I’m running the Terrain Contacts btw, so if going A/T but with a lot of on-road use still, +1 on those. But the OP would want a higher load range than I need.
  5. EPA Fuel Mileage for new 2.7 Liter Turbo in Silverado

    Other GM Products
    Correct. Which includes (unlike Ford, who certify operation and fuel mileage on regular but power on premium) SAE certification of those power numbers on regular.
  6. 90K miles - what preventative maintenance?

    Two things. One, what XWD said is good advice. I’m not so keen on doing the O2 sensors at 100k, but it also isn’t a bad idea. I would definitely be looking at new shocks all the way around. Everything else has been mentioned; IMO all your fluids are past due. Second is take a look at the...
  7. Fuel injector issue

    2nd Gen Engines and Technical Discussion
    15 Colorado 3.6, 11k on it, but a few months outside 3yrs old. Had a misfire issue so to the dealer it went. They now say it needs a #6 injector and the ‘one time use’ high pressure fuel line. Not covered under the powertrain warranty (I’m sure that’s in the fine print somewhere even though it’s...
  8. Auto Show Rebates - Frontier & Tacoma up to $1,500 _ GM Colorado=NONE

    General Truck Chat
    Two things: Discounts are nice because they make it easy, but really no different than negotiating. Research, decide what you are willing to pay, and tell the dealer. How you get to that price doesn't matter. Now, if they won't deal like you often see with popular cars and brands... well...
