Other powertrains include the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine rated at 200 horsepower and 191 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped and powered by this engine, the Colorado can tow 3,500 pounds. The available 3.6-liter DOHC V6 returns a best-in-class horsepower rating of 308 and nets 275 lb-ft of torque. Properly equip a Colorado with the V6 to achieve 7,000 pounds of towing capability.
