The new Chevy Colorado is a great choice if you need a powerful workhorse of a pickup that doesn’t take up a lot of space in your Lexington driveway. But how much can a Chevy Colorado tow? We’re happy to tell you that the Chevy Colorado towing capacity is an impressive 7,700 pounds when properly equipped. 

What do we mean by “properly equipped?” In order to reach its maximum towing potential, the Colorado must be configured with a specific engine, drivetrain, and towing accessories. Learn more about this rugged compact pickup truck with Jack Burford Chevrolet,inc.!

How Much Can a Chevy Colorado Tow?

To reach the maximum Chevy Colorado towing capacity, you’ll need to opt for the Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel with the 2-wheel drive drivetrain.
