Chevy Towing Capacity: Colorado Engines

Not only is the Colorado lineup powerful and capable, but Chevy also gives drivers three different engine options to explore. While all of them offer at least 3,500 pounds of towing potential, different configurations offer even more grit for the Richlands roads. Compare the engines below:

  • Base 2.5L 4-cylinder engine: The standard engine is available with both 2WD and 4WD drivetrain systems, and it offers 3,500 pounds of towing capacity total.
  • 3.6L V6 engine: The upgraded V6 engine also has a 3,500-pound towing max with 2WD or 4WD, but you have the option to add the Trailering Package to boost your towing specs to 7,000 pounds!
  • 2.8L Duramax® Turbo-Diesel 4-Cylinder Engine: The turbo diesel engine offers the most towing potential of all with a total of 7,700 pounds – whether you choose 2WD or 4WD.

Additionally, if you opt for the Colorado ZR2 trim level, you’ll get a 5,000-pound towing capacity at minimum.
