TRIFECTA presents: Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon MY2017--2021 Powertrain Calibration Reprogramming

As the established industry leading aftermarket calibration product for the 2015-2016 Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon, TRIFECTA is pleased to announce the immediate availability of the MY2017--2021 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon performance calibration product!

In about 20 minutes, you can increase the performance, power, sport factor, and economy for your 2017--2021 Chevrolet Colorado / 2017--2021 GMC Canyon.
 
The TRIFECTA Advantage+ Powertrain Calibration for the MY2017--2021 Chevrolet Colorado allows speedometer recalibration for aftermarket wheels and tires (among other certain calibration adjustments), and includes a TRIFECTA flash loader
Key Features of the TRIFECTA Performance MY2017--2021 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon powertrain calibration software reprogramming:

While on the outside, the 2017--2021 trucks look the same (save for a red V6 on the tailgate), underneath the hood, its a totally new truck. Sporting an application-specific 3.6L V6 of the new HFV6 generation (read more about the differences here: TRIFECTA: We love the Colorado/Canyon. We love the 2017 model even more.) and 8 speed automatic transmission, our engineers had to start from scratch in building the successor to the already best-in-class product for the 2015-2016 Chevrolet Colorado / GMC Canyon.

Dyno-proven gains in power

Using a chassis dynamometer, TRIFECTA has established proven gains in torque and horsepower!

3.6L LGZ dyno graph(on 91 octane pump gas) (this vehicle is a 2017 GMC Canyon CrewCab 2LT with a 3.6L LGZ engine) - stock wheels/tires:



Telemetry-proven gains in acceleration

Using professional grade industry-standard telemetry equipment, TRIFECTA has also established proven gains of up to .5 seconds in 0-60MPH acceleration times versus the factory calibration through power gains, throttle ramp rates, and shift schedule optimization.




Driver Selectable Vehicle Modes (also known as “DSVM” or “Shift-on-the-fly”):

The ability to change the driving behavior of a truck has always been of great interest to the truck community. TRIFECTA exclusively offers the ability to change between three driving modes, on the fly. Three profiles offered: Sport, Eco, and Tow/Haul
Sport mode offers aggressive pedal response, more progressive downshifts, extended shift points (selected when cruise control system is disarmed)
Eco mode offers economy-centric pedal response and shift points (selected when cruise control system is armed)
Tow/Haul offers the factory tow/haul mode (selected when tow/haul button is pressed / mode engaged)

Accelerator Pedal Detent Delete (Sport Mode):

The LGZ-equipped vehicles, along with most other trucks equipped with an 8 speed automatic transmission have a “detent” at the bottom of the accelerator pedal travel. On the factory calibration, the driver must consciously press through this detent in order to achieve maximum acceleration and full downshifting. While in TRIFECTA's SPORT mode, maximum acceleration and full downshifting can be achieved without passing the detent. This allows for a level of throttle modulation during sporty driving maneuvers not possible on the factory calibration.

TRIFECTA Performance Active Fuel Management (PAFM) (Advantage+ or Elite package)

The LGZ offers V6/V4 mode. GM has succeeded in making V6/V4 transitions (AFM, or Active Fuel Management as GM calls it) extremely smooth, such that in most cases they can't be noticed. However, some customers may have exhaust or other modifications that cause the truck to produce an undesirable exhaust note while in V4 mode. TRIFECTA exclusively offers three options with regard to adjusting AFM parameters with this product:
AFM available/active in all drive modes (default) AFM disabled in Sport mode AFM disabled entirely
Advantage+ and Elite customers may request AFM behavior changes when ordering their product.

Optimum shifting improvements for your transmission – without “unlocking” the TCM

The LGZ equipped vehicles come mated to an 8 speed automatic transmission (8L45). A TRIFECTA exclusive-feature allows recalibration of the transmission's behaviors WITHOUT requiring an expensive, and inconvenient “unlocking” service.

Tune installed July 17th

Miles driven since: 800

Advantage + tune with AFM disabled in Sport mode

Fuel is 89 Octane

Stock 2017 Colorado Crew Cab Short Box v6

8,100 miles

 

Want to start off by saying you get what is advertised, a solid tune that improves the overall driveability and performance of the truck. Being able to change modes on the fly is one of my favorite features. No other vehicle I've tuned supported that option.

 

Eco mode is like a better version of the stock truck tune. Seems to run smoother, and a bit quicker to shift down when needed. Does not stutter/chug up hills while under load nearly as much in the 30 - 40 mph range. Only on rare occasion have I noticed it still do this. Throttle seems to be a bit less sensitive to inputs at highway speeds which is good for mileage. Mileage seems to be on par or slightly better than stock. Averaged 25 mpg in mixed driving conditions over a 455 mile run. This is how the truck should have run straight from the factory.

 

Sport mode is a whole other story. Throttle is noticeably more sensitive / progressive. Great fun, but abrupt inputs yield abrupt results. You need to get a feel for how the throttle is mapped to be smooth, but it's certainly got more pep. The truck holds first and second longer. When merging and passing you have noticeably more grunt, it drops gears and goes. Transmission shifts are very positive, what I consider firm but not harsh. I also opted to disable the AFM in Sport mode. Made sense in Sport mode to have all six cylinders working all the time.

 

In both modes, it seems that the timing and fueling changes smooth things out and add a bit of power and torque. That coupled with the improvement in the transmission logic, the tune really works well. If you ran 91 octane in it, you'd probably see even more performance out of it. It's a truck though, and I just can't justify running premium in it.

 

I feel the tune delivers on its claims, and would recommend it to anyone. I thought it had a good performance envelope for a truck in stock tune. Now, it's even better. Two solid driving modes with the ability to switch on the fly. Eco for daily driving, and Sport for when I want that extra punch. Not really any downside.

2019 ZR2 gas stock 4500miles

I purchased this truck mainly to drive the 65 miles from sea level to 4800' and then transverse another 5 miles of rough roads to my claim, every weekend. 

Before the Tune the truck was sluggish and had a terrible lag when accelerating out of a turn to maintain speed, going up the steep grades I would be 3/4 peddle and RPMs would be too high and too low. 14 MPG going up and 24 MPG down hill.

With the Trifecta Tune my truck has been literally transformed from a sluggish, RPM violent curve, wild all over the place shifting to an intelligent almost telepathic RPM/shift pattern.

The difference is astounding, I'm an old school manual transmission type of guy and the shifts with RPMs being maintained at a level that rivals high-end sports cars, I would rarely need to put hardly any peddle activation to achieve and maintain a constant speed, its as if the truck wasn't struggling at all going up hills and going into and coming out of the whiplash turns was simply exhilarating.

Kudos to the Trifecta Team on establishing such an awesome product!

We added the Trifecta Performance tuner in mid October to our 2018 Colorado ZR2 with 37,000 miles on it. The difference is amazing! Immediate throttle response and you can definitely feel the difference in power! This little 3.6 V6 would hurt some feelings of some of the 60's muscle cars i grew up with! If you want to increase the fun factor of your Colorado, then buy this tuner!

What an amazing product and awesome customer support. I thought I had given trifecta the wrong information about my speedometer reading and gear ratio. They got back with me right away and had me go ahead and install the program and see if they needed to make an adjustments. As it turns out it was perfect just the way they had set it up. The truck has power for days and the shifting is so smooth. Also the speedometer is dead on perfect!

I have a 2018 Chevy ZR2 with 34" tires and I put in Nitro 4:10 gears.

I am one happy customer.

Wow! I don’t know why I waited so long. I installed the Advantage + a couple weeks ago on my 18 Colorado Centennial. The process was very easy and didn’t take long at all. It completely changed the truck. It’s actually fun to drive now! I had to do a couple other upgrades to compliment the tune. I added a cold air intake and cat back exhaust. The gas mileage is up a little, would probably even be better if I wasn’t having so much fun. Overall I am super happy with Trifecta.

Can’t get any easier. Installed May 2020. 8500 miles

Very easy to perform procedure.  Took less than ten minutes to complete process. I noticed better throttle response and awesome feel in the shifting of transmission. (Before very clunky and searching for gears). Its been close to two months since install. I use the sport mode occasionally. It will take off like a jet running down the runway. Quick response and overall better performance.

Spectacular!! That's the only way to explain the Trifecta tune. I bought the mid level tune mainly for the tire size calibration. The tune itself was worth it the way it freed up power. Now the truck can get out of it's own way. Super easy to install, great customer service. I'd def recommend this to anyone.

I installed the tune this morning, left work and drove all over town. Here are my views on the Trifecta Chevrolet Colorado - 3.6L - Advantage+ for my 2019 ZR2.

The setup was super easy, I got the tuner 4 days after ordering it. Next, I sent my ECM code that the tuner read. I got my tune in a matter of hours.

I was ready to install it. Not knowing how long the flashing process was, I plugged in a trickle charger I had laying around my home to make sure I didn't experience any power outages. To be honest, it was overkill as the flash took 5 minutes tops.

Install complete! I was so excited to turn the motor on and drive it.

My first impression was the throttle is so much more responsive. Gone are the days, I would squish a sponge waiting for the engine to get the signal on a 56k dial-up modem saying go. The response and the additional powers are night and day difference to the point where you need to re-learn the pedal response as you look like a jack ass burning out trying to park lol.

On the freeway the downshifts are quick and the torque is so readily available that your traction control kicks in and throttles you down when you mash the throttle.

In a 0-60 situation, I feel the 41LB lb-ft torque on my butt dyno through the mid RPM band, and the 10whp up top. The engine sounds meaner and has enough power to get you going no matter the RPM and gear you are in.

All this was done in the sport mode. In the economy mode, you feel the same thing, but it is tamed down, and your revs don't go up as high.

But let us keep it real. I want to set the expectation clear. While everything above is correct. Don't set your expectations too high. This will not light up your tires in a cloud of smoke down the highway. Also, you may or may not feel the extra power.

What you do experience is simply better drivability. The car comes alive and is more fun to drive, the throttle response is instant. I wouldn't even consider a pedal commander after this tune. The shifts are fast and smooth. It downshifts into the perfect gear and doesn't struggle to find the right gear. To put it simply, the cars not lazy anymore.

As a gearhead, I have to give credit to Trifecta. I've owned and tuned multiple performance and daily drivers. From the new model, Mustang GT's to a BMW 550 V8 Biturbo. This is the first time I genuinely enjoy daily driving the car even more. I feel that not only did Trifecta tune this car for more power. But they completely redid the engine mapping to make this truck more fun to drive.

I am thrilled with my purchase, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is considering one.

I had some experience with Trifecta on my 2013 Cruze 2LT manual so I already knew about their great customer service and reliable tune!

When I got my 2018 Colorado ZR2 back in February 2019, and coming from a 2017 Camaro SS,  I knew that a tune was going to be on my list for improved performance.  While definitely not quite there compared to the Camaro (lol!) it really woke up the Colorado!  I got the the AFM delete in Sport version and I was really surprised that my mileage still went up from stock.  You can imagine the improvements in Eco mode!  Wow - I'm well into the 20 mpg range now and when I can keep my foot out of Sport mode, I'm still at almost 20 mpg with a big grin on my face!  Forget Pedal Commanders, this tune really makes the throttle response much better!  With my Flowmaster CAI and Catback exhaust, I now have a nice little growl and a truck that can get out of it's own way!

Thanks Trifecta!

Tune was installed March 29th, 2019 on a 100% stock 2018 Colorado LT Ext Cab V6. It has a little over 4,000 miles.

I had the Torque Converter "Shudder Issue" and had the latest GM TSB 18-NA-355 performed on the 8L45 8 speed transmission. This fixed the problem but I wanted to do some preventive maintenance by installing the tune. I mainly wanted to disable AFM in all modes because of the effects it has on the transmission. The tune is solid and the transmission works like it's supposed to holding gears longer, shifting and down shifting correctly. I mainly drive in Eco Mode and the mileage is about the same which is remarkable seeing as AFM is disabled and gears are held longer.

Now I have the competitions software and have used it since 2003. It would have cost me $200.00 to get a license and another $200.00 and the loss of my vehicle for 2 weeks to be able to tune the transmission. It would have also cost me a bunch of time tuning and testing and driving illegally. I didn't have to do that! This tune does everything I wanted to do and saved me a lot of time. I have the Advantage + tune and the truck is 100% stock. I highly recommend this tune for a stock vehicle.

Advantage + tune with AFM disabled in Sport mode

Stock - I hated the way the truck drove.

Tuned - the truck drives like it should have from the factory. Sport is a bunch of fun.

Do not wait. Do not hesitate.

Have logged 1800 miles on my 18 Z71 since flashing this tune. averaging 18.5-19MPG so far while in sport mode 90% of the time and a mix of city/hwy roughly 60/40. Only other mod is a K&N plenum tube and filter.

The truck is a different vehicle in sport mode! Feels much quicker, hold gears longer at partial throttle, and feels like it has a good bit more power. Much more fun to drive.

I love my Advantage+ tune on my 2017 Colorado V6. The sport mode is raucous, and the eco mode shifts much closer to stock, but still feels like major gains when driving. I actually spend most of my time in eco mode. I can't say enough good things about the Trifecta, it gives the best of both worlds, so to speak, and the customer service feedback is great as well. I've had it for about a year now, and only recently came across an issue where my truck started running and shifting funny. Originally, I figured the ECU had just relearned some of its old habits, so I re-flashed the tune. It was still off, so I thought maybe we did it wrong (I have to use a friends laptop to upload it). It turns out the tune was probably fine all along, and I believe the problem was just a bad tank of gas or two, because it has sorted itself out on its own. I only mention that so if anyone else runs into something like that, they can start their potential fix by getting some different gas. Thanks again, Trifecta!

I just finished installing a Trifecta Advantage plus tune on my 2017 Colorado 3.6 V-6 with the 8 speed automatic transmission. After providing Trifecta with the necessary vehicle ECM module info, the download was flawless . I immediately took my Colorado out for a road test and was very pleased with the change in performance. Accelerating out onto the highway it holds first and second gear a little longer than stock, and under WOT, the shifts are firmer. I was critical of my vehicle's performance at speeds around 40 mph, as when attempting to accelerate, the transmission felt like it was stuck in a higher gear and lugging until you did a forced downshift. With the Trifecta tune, the vehicle is already in a lower gear or depressing the accelerator slightly produces a almost imperceptible downshift. The extra torque the tune produces is also evident at lower speeds when a downshift is not necessary. Engaging "shift on the fly" is accomplished by turning the cruise control on and off. If driving along in Sport mode (cruise control off) and switching to Eco mode (cruise control on), the transmission will immediately shift into a higher more economical gear with a corresponding drop in rpm.

 

I would recommend this Trifecta tune for anyone seeking a performance upgrade to their 2017 Colorado V-6.

2019 Colorado RST Crew Cab V6 lifted with 32.5" tires

Advantage + tune with AFM disabled in Sport mode

Miles driven: 5000

Fuel : 93 Octane

Hands down best bang for your buck modification on a naturally aspirated V6, driveability and power delivery has greatly improved. I originally purchased  the Trifecta tune to help improve  midrange torque  not expecting a complete transformation of the vehicle and waited 5000 miles (various driving scenarios) to review. All expectations were met and the complete transformation of the truck continues to deliver while in sport mode.

Fuel economy has not changed but has not decreased with the addition of larger tires and removal of the front spoiler. Avg. 20.7 with spirited driving.

Purchasing process was fast and easy, installation time less than 10 minutes... very happy with the product and  Trifecta team! 

Highly Recommend.

Have the Trifecta tune on my 2020 ZR2 3.6L V6 and it has made a world of difference. I strongly suggest this tune to all ZR2 owners as a priority mod! Even in the ECO Mode the trucks drivability is so much better. These 8 speed transmissions tend to “hunt” for gears and the stock shift pattern is lousy at best. The shifting is much improved and no more hunting for gears! Then there is the Sport Mode and oh man is the truck fun to drive in this mode! The combination of the changes to the shifting and the responsiveness of the throttle the truck now feels like the performance truck I was seeking when I bought the ZR2! After thousands of dollars spent in mods for my ZR2 this tune is the best money I have spent on it!

Bought the tune to calibrate for when I move up to bigger tires soon. The performance boost is pretty great though! Better throttle response in normal(eco) mode, and a noticeable boost in power in Sport mode. Quick and easy installation!

Thanks!

Extremely satisfied with this tuner installed in my 2019 GMC Canyon All Terrain . It made the world of difference in performance ! I had installed larger tires and now the speedometer is now calibrated back to normal . The shift points are spot on when in ECO mode and in performance mode .This tuner really woke up this engine as it should have been right from the dealership . I also use the tow mode which made a world of difference also , Don't even feel the boat ! So glad I made the decision to purchase this . You will not be disappointed with their support team ether . Very knowledgeable ,supportive services ! I highly recommend this program and look forward to driving my truck every day ! Thanks again Trifecta !!
