The 2020 Chevy Colorado is one of the most popular mid-size pickups around, thanks to its impressive performance on the Crawfordville roads. But if you need a powerhouse that won’t let you down, just what can you expect from the 2020 Chevy Colorado towing capacity? This mighty truck can handle up to 7,700 pounds, which is enough to tow a boat through Quincy or a camper to Havana. Is the Chevy towing capacity right for you? Let’s take a look!

2020 Chevy Colorado Towing by Engine

Your Chevy Colorado towing specs will depend on your trim and engine, but no matter what model you choose, you can expect heavy-duty power on the road. Here’s a brief breakdown of the different options:

  • 2.5L 4-Cylinder Engine: The standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
  • 3.6L V6: The optional 3.6L V6 engine also has a 3,500-pound capacity, but when you add the available towing package, you’ll increase that number to 7,000 pounds.
  • Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel 4-Cylinder: The available Duramax® diesel engine maxes out at a 7,700-pound maximum towing capacity, or 7,600 pounds with four-wheel drive.

If you choose the premium Colorado ZR2 trim, you’ll have a total towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. That’s plenty of capacity to tow a boat, ATVs, or whatever else you need for that Chevy Colorado off-road adventure.
