Chevy Colorado Towing Capacity by Configuration

The Chevy Colorado towing capacity varies, by a significant margin, from trim to trim. So, it’s important to make your selection carefully:

  • With the 2.5-Liter 4-Cylinder engine that comes standard. You can always tow up to 3,500 pounds, regardless of whether or not you add other packages.
  • The available 3.6-Liter V6 delivers the same 3,500-pound maximum unless you choose to upgrade with the towing package. In that event, your towing capacity will double to 7,000 pounds.
  • The real star of this show is the Duramax® 2.8-Liter Turbo-Diesel, which can tow up to 7,700 pounds with 4×2, or 7,600 pounds with 4×4. 
  • If you’re looking for a model that’s perfectly-suited to off-road performance, choose the luxurious Colorado ZR2. Its towing capacity is topped at 5,000 pounds, which is still more than enough for a lot of outdoor gear.
