Ital­ian Job

4 x 4 Australia - - First Drive -

THE Colorado ute and its wagon sib­ling are both pow­ered by 2.8-litre four­cylin­der turbo-diesel from Ital­ian diesel en­gine spe­cial­ist VM Mo­tori. Why? Be­cause up un­til 2013 Gen­eral Mo­tors had a 50 per cent stake in VM Mo­tori. Since 2013 VM Mo­tori has been 100 per cent owned by Fiat Pow­er­train Tech­nolo­gies, which in turn is owned by the Fiat Group. The Fiat Group also owns Chrysler, which is why VM Mo­tori diesel en­gines ap­pear in a num­ber of Jeep mod­els in­clud­ing the Wran­gler and the Grand Chero­kee.
