2022 Chevy Colorado Towing Capacity by Engine 

While the Chevy Colorado towing capacity can reach 7,000 pounds, Covington shoppers need to choose the right engine to reach the maximum. The three 2022 Chevy Colorado engine options all have different towing capacities. Choose the engine that best fits your towing needs: 

  • 2022 Colorado w/ 2.5L 4-Cylinder Engine – All models equipped with the baseline Colorado engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds with a payload capacity of 1,716 pounds.
  • 2022 Colorado w/ Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel 4-Cylinder Engine – Equip your truck with the Duramax® diesel engine to be able to tow up to 5,000 pounds with your Colorado while enjoying a payload capacity of 2,181 pounds.
  • 2022 Colorado w/ 3.6L V6 Engine – Upgrade to a V6 engine with the Trailering Package to reach a 7,000-pound maximum towing capacity* with a payload capacity of 1,774 pounds. Without the Trailering Package, the 2022 Colorado tows 3,500 pounds with this engine.

The 2022 Chevy Colorado trim level you choose will also have an impact on how much a Chevy Colorado can tow; if you choose the top-tier Colorado ZR2 configuration, your Chevy Colorado towing capacity will max out at 5,000 pounds. What can this Chevy Colorado tow then? A small boat or a pair of ATVs are well within the towing capacity. With the Colorado ZR2’s enhanced off-road capabilities, this is a great choice for Independence outdoor adventurers.
