Chevy Colorado Towing Capacity by Configuration

As with most pickups, maximum Chevy towing capacity depends on the trim level you choose. You’ll also need to equip yours with the right towing-specific accessories to make the most of that raw Chevy Colorado towing power. Here’s what to keep in mind as you explore the Chevy Colorado towing capacity by trim:

  • Colorado w/ 2.5L 4-Cylinder – Models with the base 2.5L 4-Cylinder engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
  • Colorado w/ 3.6L V6 – Opt for the V6 engine upgrade plus the Trailering Package to reach a towing capacity of 7,000 pounds. Without the Trailering Package, this engine also tows 3,500 pounds.
  • Colorado w/ Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel 4-Cylinder – To reach the maximum 7,700-pound Colorado towing capacity, equip your truck with the Duramax® diesel engine.

If your trim of choice is the luxurious and off-road-ready Colorado ZR2, Chevy towing capacity will hit a ceiling at 5,000 pounds. That’s plenty for most drivers, and easily enough to tow a small boat or RV trailer out to Williamstown. 

Still, some drivers may be looking for a higher Chevy towing capacity to pair with off-road capabilities. If that’s you, learn more about the Chevy Silverado 1500!
