2020 Colorado Performance: Towing, Engines, & Safety

2020 Chevy Colorado Exterior dirfting in  the dirt

The 2020 Chevy Colorado is the adventure-ready midsize truck ready to take on your work or play with full-size capability. With powerful engine options, along with capable towing, you can count on the Colorado taking care of business. The team at Mike Anderson Chevrolet of Merrillville has put together this guide outlining some of the key details about the 2020 Colorado and its towing and performance capabilities. For more information, you can also check out our inventory to browse the Colorado models we have available at our Merrillville, IN, dealership. If you have any questions, please contact us online or call at (219) 576-6173.

Towing Capacity

If you’ve got serious trailering to do — for work or for fun — the three available engines under the hood of the 2020 Colorado are up to the task. If you’re looking for the most powerful towing option, the Duramax® turbo-diesel is the way to go, but the 3.6L V6 with available trailering package comes in close behind. Also, pay attention to the GCWR to see just how much each engine can tow, in addition to the weight of the loaded vehicle. You can find key specs about the 2020 Chevy Colorado towing capacity in this engine performance chart.

Towing Terms to Know

As you may have noticed, there can be plenty of long terms to remember about towing and truck performance. That’s why we broke down a few of the important ones for you here.

GCWR

Gross combined weight rating. This is the combined weight of the truck and trailer. The manufacturer of your vehicle knows how much the systems on your vehicle can safely handle while you’re towing, so to keep your engine, transmission, tires, brakes, and suspension in good shape, don’t go past this number.

GVWR

Gross vehicle weight rating. This is the weight of your truck with everything in it — you, fuel, cargo — except the trailer — that you don’t want to be heavier than. You can load your vehicle until it reaches this weight, but for the good of your brakes, suspension, transmission, and tires, don’t go beyond it.

Payload Capacity

If you’re looking for beefy payload capability — the weight your truck bed can handle — the 2020 Colorado has options for you. We’ve collected the payloads for each 2020 Colorado engine option in this table:
