There are a lot of reasons why a person might invest in a pickup truck like the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado. Perhaps you’re someone that does the sort of heavy-duty work that requires a powerful pickup, or maybe you’re the kind of person who enjoys the sort of weekend adventure only a pickup truck can provide.
Or, perhaps you’ve got stuff that needs towing. Whether it’s a U-Haul trailer, a boat, or a camper, the Chevy Colorado offers the towing capacity required to get these types of jobs done. However, in order to do these jobs safely, you’ll need to make sure what you’re towing lines up with what a 2020 Chevy Colorado is safely rated to handle. If you’re curious as to what those numbers are, the following is a look at how different Chevy Colorado models available at your Chevy dealership serving San Diego, CA handle different towing loads:
Chevy Colorado with 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine – The base engine for all Chevy Colorado models is capable of towing as much as 3,500 pounds.
Chevy Colorado with 3.6-liter V6 engine – The next engine up the food chain is this V6, which also can tow 3,500 pounds. However, by upgrading to the optional towing package, this iteration can tow as much as 7,000 pounds.
Chevy Colorado with Duramax® 2.8-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder – Because of the high torque available in diesel engines, this engine allows for maximum towing capacity with an impressive 7,700 pounds. However, those who get this model with the 4×4 drivetrain will max out at 7,600 pounds.
Those considering a Chevy Colorado for sale should take these numbers into consideration when doing research for a new vehicle purchase. These models can do great work towing, but different models have different capabilities. Here at Kearny Mesa Chevrolet, we hope to help our customers find exactly the model they need.
