Chevy Colorado Towing Capacity by Configuration

You’ll need the right equipment in order to reach the maximum Chevy Colorado towing capacity, but each trim is capable of putting up respectable numbers. Here’s what you should keep in mind when you’re selecting a model and an engine:

  • Colorado w/ 2.5L 4-Cylinder – All models equipped with the baseline Colorado engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
  • Colorado w/ 3.6L V6 – Upgrade to a V6 engine with the Trailering Package to reach a 7,000-pound maximum towing capacity. Without the Trailering Package, this engine tows 3,500 pounds.
  • Colorado w/ Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel 4-Cylinder – Equip your truck with the Duramax® diesel engine to reach the Colorado maximum towing capacity. All models so outfitted can tow up to 7,700 pounds!

Drivers who opt for the high-end and luxurious Colorado ZR2 trim will have their maximum capacity capped at 5,000 pounds. That’s still more than enough power to tow a small boat or a couple of ATVs, and owners will appreciate the additional off-road capabilities. If you think you’ll need even more Chevy towing capacity, why not see what the Silverado can do!
