It comes down to money though...does it make sense for GM to spend the money to put a Diesel in the Colorado, especially when putting a Diesel in it would bump the price up uncomfortably close to their Silverados? Nobody outside GM knows for sure yet, or at least there's been no confirmation to the media.
I am pretty sure that the new Colorado sold in Mexico only comes with a gas engine.
