I hope this helpful to some folks trying to distinguish between the package level differences.


The TRIFECTA Advantage Powertrain Calibration for the MY2017--2021 Chevrolet Colorado
Includes:
Trifecta flash loader

The TRIFECTA Advantage+ Powertrain Calibration for the MY2017--2021 Chevrolet Colorado allows speedometer recalibration for aftermarket wheels and tires (among other certain calibration adjustments)
Includes:
Trifecta flash loader
Speedometer recalibration
AFM delete options

The TRIFECTA Elite Powertrain Calibration with Individualization (Custom Profiling) for the MY2017--2021 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon LGZ includes calibration individualization, remote diagnostics, and comprehensive aftermarket hardware software integration support.
Includes:
Trifecta flash loader
Speedometer recalibration
AFM delete options
Individualized after-sale tune support

Some believe that Trifecta isn't much more than a Pedal Commander with a few more bells and whistles. Even if this were the case, considering that a PC MSRP is $300-350, the basic Trifecta tune is at the same price point, giving you mode change on the fly, and has no interface module to fiddle with. I have used a Pedal Commander, and liked it, but found my driving situations requiring me to turn it off more frequently. Being able to change driving modes without fumbling with a device, "TRIFECTA exclusively offers the ability to change between three driving modes, on the fly", is more appealing to me.
Regardless of the particulars, I still have not read any negative reviews of the Trifecta tune product. That in of itself is very impressive. Even Fondupot likes it:
Hey Dave, what exhaust is that?

Thanks for the share. I love the Trifecta on my 3.6. They have been great to work with.

My truck has stock exhaust, just a fancy tip I added for looks.

I have the Trifecta Advantage + and I can unequivocally say it is awesome. I picked up a little bit of mpg's and a lot of useful power when I need it. If you're on the fence I will say that this is the best money I have spent on the truck so far (except maybe the cupholderhero liners ) so jump in on this sale you won't regret it! I hit the go button and ate a taco for lunch today...felt so good.

If I can get the Elite for the A+, I will. Even if don't ever need that level service, I'll have it.
like selling gift cards, over half of them don't get used. Its money for them.

Well pulled the trigger on the Elite. Have to wait for the cable and go from there. Have to pull some ECM info for them once the cable shows up.

Do you have any mods?

Trike, Yes, you can remove and replace, but I don't think the flash will ever be totally invisible. For instance, if I got the plus and ran with AFM disabled, and a problem wit injection arose, the AFM meddling could be discovered. If Im wrong, somebody say so, but this is my current opinion based on the input Ive glaned so far. Trifecta can claim that AFM delete could not cause any damage to the FI, which I would agree, but that won't keep your service dept from denying you support, which would be within their right.
This product is a good product, but you will be taking some amount of risk with altering your vehicles programming. The product is for those who feel the trade-off is worth it for a vehicle that should have better shift programming to begin with.

As for the Thanksgiving pricing based on pre-BF prices:
2017-2020 3.6:
Advantage $30 off
Advantage+ $30 off
Elite $100 off

Will I bite for this? If I needed Elite, definitely. But I don't.
I'm disappointed they couldn't do better on the A+

Well I am by far no expert but it states it will not add to the ECM counters. I hear what you are saying about altering. The truck needed a bit more of something and hope it will smooth out the trans shifts like most have stated. I will admit the new oil and the fluids I have changed in my Diffs and transfer case have been a notable improvement but wanted to try this tune while it was on sale. Yeah its not cheap but is anything? And I really wanted a super charger but cant afford that yet. So this for the time being will be improvement mod.

Now I didn't OPT out of the AFM being disabled I have no problem with it , just wish I could turn it on more , and turn it off when I want to be speed racer for the day. 😁

And the Elite was a bit over 100 bucks off since yesterday. Cant remember the others. So originally it was over 700+ then it was marked down now black Friday price.

Still debating on it.
The sport mode does not seem a power difference, but mainly a a more sensitive accelerator and higher rpm on trans.
Driving around sat in sport mode, on flat country road, holding speed trans was not shifting into 6th, most of the time it was hanging in 4th.
Not much time driving around besides interstate with cruise on.
Since I put my lift, tires and wheels on I have the milage numbers.

Definitely don't want sport mode in winter conditions.

Thursday evening I will be fueling up and get a mpg with all interstate, besides going to truck stop and next ramp to hotel.
My truck is sitting till I can get back to it Thursday to drive home.
Mpg seems so far that it helped alittle, after acouple tanks, will see.

I did a 3.2 mph offset with tune, with going off gps, seems right on going from 265/60r18 to 275/55r20.

I need to get a tune on terrain wife drives and put a 10 mph offset to slow her down lol

Staying in low gears will keep you peppy, but at what expense?
To me, its looking like the tune needs more modes to chose from.
Has any one tried the Eco? Better down shifts in Eco would suit me.
