2020 Chevy Colorado Towing a Boat

The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado is a mid-size pickup with uncompromising capabilities, allowing it to stand out in an increasingly crowded segment among top competitors like the Honda Ridgeline and Toyota Tacoma. Whether you’re putting it to the test on a Cincinnati, OH job site or gearing up for a camping trip, the new Colorado proves no challenge is too tough with a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds.

How Does Engine Choice Affect Chevy Colorado Towing?

Three powerful engine options are available for the 2020 Colorado. Each engine supports an impressive Chevy towing capacity, but the numbers will vary depending on your choice. Keep these Chevy Colorado towing specs in mind as you configure your truck:

  • Colorado w/ 2.5L 4-Cylinder – All models equipped with the baseline Colorado engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
  • Colorado w/ 3.6L V6 – This 3.6L V6 also tows 3,500 pounds on its own, but if you upgrade to the available towing package, your Colorado can reach a higher Chevy towing capacity of 7,000 pounds.
  • Colorado w/ Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel 4-Cylinder – The Duramax® diesel engine is needed to reach the maximum Chevy Colorado towing capacity of 7,700 pounds. Thinking of opting for a 4×4 drivetrain? If so, the towing capacity maxes out at 7,600 pounds.

One of the most popular models in the 2020 Colorado lineup is the off-road-ready ZR2 trim. Covington drivers who opt for this configuration will have a maximum Chevy towing capacity of 5,000 pounds; that’s more than you’ll need to tow your compact camper or your ATVs for a weekend of adventure!
