2022 Chevrolet Colorado Towing a Boat
The 2022 Chevy Colorado’s towing capacity ranges from 3,500 pounds to 7,700 pounds, depending on your choice of engine and configuration. Even if you stick with the base-level model, you’ll have more than enough power to tow a small pop-up camper or a lightweight fishing boat—and moving down the lineup will give you the ability to handle a lot more weight. If you’re ready to learn more about one of the most capable pickups in the midsize segment, we’ve got you covered!



2022 Chevy Colorado Towing Capacity & Engine Specs

The 2022 Chevy Colorado is available with a four-cylinder gas engine, a six-cylinder gas engine, and a Duramax® diesel. You’ll need the diesel engine in order to reach the Colorado’s upper towing limit, but any engine can be a good choice for shoppers in the Sicklerville area. Our breakdown of the Chevy Colorado towing specs can help you select or build the perfect model:
