I have a 2016 Colorado Z71 V6 with 6 speed automatic, 2wheel drive. I really like everything about this midsized truck except the automatic transmission! I have 20000 miles on it and have been to 3 dealerships trying to get assistance in modifying the shift points of this tyranny. Same answer as always, they can'take modify from factory specs! The current tune settings always keeps the Trans in too high of a gear so when I need the acceleration, it would buck & hesitate before downshifting and then launch into gear. Very disgusting performance. I was averaging 23.5 miles per gallon as I drive 62 miles a day, combination city & freeway traffic with the AC on as I live in Phoenix. I would like to say that this tune package is by far the best $300 I have ever spent on a vehicle! I'm a car guy for 40 years (Chevy) and am extremely impressed as I was even thinking about trading the Colorado in on a v8 full size truck. Don't delay, get this package now! I have been running in ECONO mode all week and just check the gas mileage and it shows 27.7 mpg! With lots of power & great shifting manners. Performance will blow you away!

WOW!

 

Installed this tune over the weekend, and I am kicking myself for not purchasing this earlier. My truck would hesitate and sputter out all the time, the truck was never in the right gear at lower speeds. Had the ECM re-programmed twice by chevy for updates, never made a difference. They said it was normal and the behavior was there for fuel economy.

 

After 10 minutes of programming my truck has new life. With cruise control turned off you are in performance mode, and it scream compared to before! Cruise control on puts the truck in economy mode, feels very similar to stock ( a little power gain maybe) but no more stutter at lower speeds.

 

If your truck was doing what mine was GET THIS TUNE!

I bought the 2016 Chevy Colorado about 8 months ago. I love the truck but was disappointed by the lack of power and acceleration it had. The transmission was sluggish especially the low gears they were so rough in shifting. Then I bought the Trifecta Performance Tuner. Wow! What a difference. I noticed it as soon as I backed out of the driveway. The acceleration has improved tenfold. The truck is like a brand new truck. The lower gears where I noticed the sluggish response (1100-1500rpms), was totally corrected. Chevy has done a huge disservice to its 2016 Colorado. I really cannot believe the change. All the problems with the automatic shifting and downshifting are gone. I would recommend this to anyone. If you can operate a laptop then you will have no problem downloading then uploading the Trifecta tuner.

Let me first say I'm not the guy who is really anxious to mess with factory stuff on my new truck. However I read about the tune on the Coloradofans forum and I had definitely noticed that the truck seemed sluggish in terms of acceleration considering it has 305 crank HP. In order to merge on a highway, I really had to get on the gas hard to get it to downshift and accelerate. So I got the Advantage tune. It's literally like night and day. Why it doesn't come like this from the factory is a mystery to me (I also got a 2" leveling kit which is how it should have looked from the factory!). The ECO mode feels similar to the stock mode so it's nice to have that option since the sport mode is way too much fun and makes me to drive in ways that are probably not real fuel efficient. :) Anyway it was an excellent decision to get it and easy to install. Love it.

I cannot remember how much fun a press of a single button can create.

 

1) Turn Cruise off

2) Enjoy a silky smooth transmission-the way Detroit should have done it in the first place.

3) Strap in and hang on for your dear life.

 

It's like seeing the Ying and Yang of my Colorado. I haven't had this much by pressing a button since my Pac Man Days in High School. Why did I wait so long?

 

Only request, please show some love for Apple lovers by creating an OS X compatible flash.

I am very pleased with the tune on my 2015 Z71 Colorado. The shift points are so much better than factory in the performance mode. In the eco I have gotten as much as 24.6 mpg in city and I zeroed for straight hwy driving and got 31 mpg. I did swap out the factory filter for a K& replacement filter.

Nice tune thanks, Jerry

Phenomenal improvement after uploading the basic Trifecta software for my 2015 Colorado. Throttle lag/hesitation has all but disappeared. Every so often I'll accelerate and get some lag or a small "jerk", but no where near what GM programmed into the truck from the factory. Also, after 1500 miles of driving since I installed the Trifecta software, my gas mileage has improved by nearly 4 MPG! I am now getting 21.1 MPG in local, stop and go, short distance, neighborhood driving. ( I run home improvement business, so I go from house to house, sometimes towing a trailer) I have not had a chance to check highway mileage, but I'm certain it should improve dramatically too. I am extremely pleased with the improvements I've seen after installing the Trifecta software. Thank you!!

Simply unbelievable improvement. My Colorado finally performs like the Truck of the

Year. Shift points are now perfectly coordinated with the torque curve allowing me to have the power I need in daily driving without jamming the pedal to the floor. Toggle to Econ mode with the cruise control button for maximum MPG, and is still more driveable than the awful stock tune. Tow mode remains unchanged if you want it. No downside to this tune. Sorry it took me a year to find Trifecta.

On Friday night I applied the Trifecta Advantage powertrain recalibration to my 2015 Chevrolet Colorado pickup. What an amazing difference! My shifts are now properly-timed, quick, and the truck is so much more responsive and pleasurable to drive. Now with over 300 miles of driving I'm noticing another benefit -- increased MPG! Before I averaged 22 MPG. With mostly Interstate miles, driving 65-75 MPH, I'm now seeing 30 MPG. Amazing, just amazing. I was looking for better transmission performance and would have taken a minor loss in MPG to get it -- so this is a very happy surprise. I am NOT a gearhead and I don't "tinker" with my vehicles so I approached this with trepidation. However, the install was easy and trouble-free. I could not be more pleased!

I have driven this tune since October. It is remarkable. My fuel mileage has risen and the truck is so much more drivable. Happy to say the least.

This tune is awesome. It REALLY wakes up the truck and no more slow throttle response - it's instant now. It really fixes the gearing as well. I highly recommend it!

Very happy overall with this product. Noticeable difference in power, shifting, and gas mileage as compared to stock. Very simple installation process as long as you understand to WAIT until the installation is finished. Took less than 30 minutes. Very simple to change from performance back to "stock" tune by pressing the cruise control power button. Excellent product and excellent service thus far. Well done.

Really amazed at the difference in power with this tune. Never was a believer in tuners for gas engines before but I am a believer now. The power is greatly improved in the tune mode with 1 to 2 mpg better fuel economy in the ECO mode, which still has good power. WOT Tuning was great to work with and answered all my questions. The install was pretty simple and I like the fact that you can remove it and put your stock tune back in whenever you want. Great product!

Totally transformed my truck's shifting performance. Turned it from a frustrating experience to a joy to drive. I am sure GM programmed the truck to get the best mileage on the EPA loop which isn't a real world driving experience. The performance mode is a hoot but ECO mode is where I think this tune is worth the cost. Shifting is improved and my mileage has increased to the point of offsetting the added cost of premium fuel. Plus with flick of a button a have more aggressive engine and transmission tuning.

Absolutely worth every penny. Much better shifting pattern, throttle response, and torque. I wish Trifecta were a little more transparent with information on upcoming products and timelines, but otherwise, my experience with this purchase was flawless.

Before I talk about the tune itself, let me speak on the customer service. TOP NOTCH!!! Very responsive, even to my trivial questions about a demo-tune.

 

This tune really wakes up the Colorado. It is a little lacking in initial punch stock, but the throttle response and general behavior of the transmission is significantly improved. The Eco Mode is the real deal as well. At flat cruising speed on the interstate I routinely see MPG above 25.

 

I highly recommend the Trifecta Tune for the 2015 Colorado.

Fantastic Tune. Truck shifts are perfect, no more bogging on low accelerations or passing accelerations. Noticeable improvements in fuel mileage. Easy installation and warp speed support. Completely satisfied!!!
