If you own weekend toys such as a boat, camper, dirt bike or off-road vehicle, you’re going to need to tow or haul the cargo at some point.

As you can see from the chart above, the maximum towing capacity of the 2017 Chevy Colorado is 7,700 pounds when combined with the available Tow/Haul Mode. But what does that mean exactly? When determining what you can tow with your 2017 Colorado, you’ll want to take a variety of factors into account. You should factor in weight of passengers, trailer weight and cargo weight before determining what your 2017 Colorado can tow. That being said, towing dirt bikes, a small camper or a small boat should be a pretty safe bet for your truck. For more information about Chevy truck hauling and towing capacities, click here.
