Lakeland drivers looking for exceptional capacity and affordability in their pickups know to turn towards Chevrolet for their storied engineering prowess. Those looking for the latest technologies and unrivaled durability for the best investment around Valrico also find Chevrolet has the edge over competitors. But, when you’re wondering which Chevy truck works for you, the choice can be harder than expected. Our Stingray Chevrolet experts break down the differences between the 2020 Chevy Colorado vs. Silverado to help you decide.

Chevrolet Colorado vs. Chevrolet Silverado: Performance

Most drivers will recognize the main difference between the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado vs. Chevrolet Silverado is that of power. Whether you want a highly efficient 2.5L 4-cylinder in the Chevrolet Colorado or a roaring 4.3L V6 base engine in the Chevy Silverado 1500, your options range from standard workhorse to true powerhouse. For those consistently heavier loads, the Chevy Silverado 1500 may be your better option, with a maximum payload capacity of 2,250 pounds vs. 1,578 pounds in the Colorado. In terms of towing capacity, this is also the case, as the Chevrolet Colorado pulls a respectable 7,700 pounds compared to the Silverado’s immense max towing capacity of 13,400 pounds. However, with a better fuel economy on the highway of an EPA-estimated 30 mpg, the Colorado pulls ahead of the 26 mpg offered by the Chevy Silverado. For longer hauling and towing, the Colorado will end up saving you more at the pump.

Chevrolet Colorado vs. Chevrolet Silverado: Pricing and Trim Levels

Combined with a better highway fuel economy, the standard pricing of the Chevrolet Colorado is more affordable than that of the Chevy Silverado. This is to be expected with the massive upgrade to the engine and capacity that the Silverado offers. With eight trim levels at variable pricing beginning at $28,300 MSRP, the Chevy Silverado also has a little more versatility and range than the Colorado, which offers five different configurations, starting at $21,300 MSRP. As both offer engine upgrades, including a high-performance diesel option, there are plenty of reasons to compare further in person which truck ultimately suits you and your budget.
