Chevy Colorado Towing Power by Configuration

There are many ways you can customize your performance around Valrico with the Colorado. However, when looking for the right Chevy towing capacity for your needs, you’ll want to make sure you have the configuration. Here’s how each configuration varies the Chevy towing capacity: 

Standard 2.5L 4-Cylinder

  • 2WD w/ extended cab or crew cab – 3,500 pounds
  • 4WD w/ extended cab or crew cab – 3,500 pounds

Available 3.6L DOHC V6

  • 2WD w/ extended cab or crew cab – 3,500 pounds
  • 4WD w/ extended cab or crew cab – 3,500 pounds
  • 2WD, extended cab or crew cab, and Trailering Package: 7,000 pounds
  • 4WD, extended cab or crew cab, and Trailering Package: 7,000 pounds

Available Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel

  • 2WD w/ crew cab and short box: 7,700 pounds
  • 4WD w/ crew cab and short box: 7,600 pounds
  • 4WD w/ crew cab and long box: 7,550 pounds
  • 4WD w/ extended cab and long box: 7,700 pounds

As you can see, the maximum Chevy Colorado towing capacity comes with the Turbo-Diesel engine. Opt for the off-road Colorado ZR2 with a 3.6L V6 or diesel engine, and Brandon drivers will enjoy 5,000-pound capacity, more than enough for a small boat or a couple of ATVs, and exceptional off-road performance.
