Chevy Colorado Towing by Configuration

In order to achieve the maximum Chevy Colorado towing capacity, you will need the correct equipment installed. No matter which engine you select, though, you’ll be hitting the Lake Port streets with plenty of towing capability.

  • Colorado w/ 2.5L 4-Cylinder: The introductory engine compels the Colorado to a 3,500-pound towing capacity.
  • Colorado w/ 3.6L V6: The upgraded Colorado V6 tows up to 3,500 pounds on its own, but Chevy Colorado towing increases to 7,000 pounds with the available Trailering Package.
  • Colorado w/ Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel 4-Cylinder: It’s the diesel engine offering that boosts the Chevy Colorado towing capacity to 7,700 pounds.

Interested in off-roading in the Fort Gratiot area? Then you may want to consider the Chevy Colorado ZR2 trim, which comes with the necessary equipment to safely travel off the beaten path. Plus, this model still delivers a Chevy towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. Think you’ll need even more towing capabilities? You can nearly double your tow rating with the Chevy Silverado 1500’s towing capacity.
