Chevy Colorado Towing Capacity by Engine

Proper equipment is required to hit the maximum Chevy Colorado towing capacity, but each trim level is capable of delivering impressive specs. To help you make the right choice, here’s an overview of how your engine choice will affect the Chevy Colorado towing abilities:

  • Colorado w/ 2.5L 4-Cylinder Engine – Equipped with the base-level 2.5L 4-cylinder, the Colorado can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
  • Colorado w/ 3.6L V6 – The upgraded 3.6L V6 engine is also rated to tow a maxium of 3,500 pounds, but when you opt for the available towing package, you’ll increase that number to 7,000 pounds.
  • Colorado w/ Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel 4-Cylinder – Opt for the Duramax® diesel engine to gain access to the 7,700-pound maximum towing capacity, or 7,600 pounds with four-wheel drive.

Johns Creek shoppers who opt for the premium Colorado ZR2 trim will be limited to a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. But rest assured, that’s more than enough power to tow a small boat or even a couple of ATVs, and you’ll appreciate this trim’s off-road capabilities when you’re heading out on a rugged adventure.
