Orange 2021 Chevrolet Towing Mountain Bikes

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado towing capacity proves that it’s a mid-size pickup with full-size spirit. Since the Chevy Colorado towing capacity tops out at 7,700 pounds, daily work in Portage or adventures beyond Galesburg or Mattawan are all on the table. 

Chevy Colorado Towing Capacity by Configuration

Your 2021 Chevy Colorado towing capacity will depend on which model you choose. Not every driver needs that full 7,700 pound towing capability, but every Colorado driver has access to at least 3,500 pounds of towing.

  • Colorado w/ 2.5L 4-Cylinder – The baseline Colorado engine allows towing up to 3,500 pounds.
  • Colorado w/ 3.6L V6 – The V6 engine also tows at 3,500 pounds, but adding on the Trailering Package kicks things up to 7,000 pounds of towing on this Colorado.
  • Colorado w/ Duramax® 2.8L Turbo-Diesel – If you need more than 7,000 pounds, you’ll want the available 2.8L turbo-diesel, which delivers the maximum 7,700 pounds!

If you’ve got your sights set on the Colorado ZR2, you’ll be a little more limited on towing — 5,000 pounds — but that’s still more than enough power to tow a small boat or a couple of ATVs. And the trade-off is a set of superior off-road capabilities. Need a truck that can tow more? See what the Silverado can do!
