Since one of the most appealing features of a pickup truck is its ability to tow more than any other class of vehicle, it makes sense that you’d want one that can live up to that promise. That’s why U.S. News recently compiled a list of the 13 best trucks for towing. Unsurprisingly, both the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado and Silverado 1500 made the grade.
U.S. News editor Nick Kurczewski praised the Colorado for its diesel engine’s remarkable balance of capability and efficiency, saying, “This motor delivers not only the best towing capacity found in a compact pickup, it’s the Colorado’s most fuel-efficient motor, too.” The engine in question is a 2.8L Turbo-Diesel that offers up to 7,700 pounds while still achieving up to 30 mpg on the highway.*
Meanwhile, the 2020 Silverado 1500 leads the pack, mostly due to its best-in-class towing capacity — 13,400 pounds — and a bevy of trailering technology. With a segment-leading 15 camera views to monitor your cargo and a segment-first Advanced Trailering System, this truck more than earns its status as the king of towing.
Whether you need to tow for work or play, Chevrolet can’t be beat. To learn more about the Colorado and Silverado 1500, contact us at Sharon Chevrolet. Or better yet, stop by in person to test-drive these two trucks for yourself.

If you’re looking for a diesel truck that balances efficiency and capability, consider the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado lineup. The models in the lineup recently earned spots on the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Diesel Trucks of 2020 list, highlighting their top-notch powertrains.
The Silverado 1500, 2500 HD and 3500 HD all made the list for being able to tow exceptionally heavy loads and boasting outstanding performance when equipped with diesel engines. When you opt for the Duramax® 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel engine, the 2020 Silverado 1500 can tow up to 9,300 pounds when equipped properly, while the fuel-efficient engine reaches 460 lb-ft of torque.
The Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD models have bold, strong designs for the 2020 model year. The HD trucks also have a range of advanced technologies that help make towing easier, including up to 15 available camera views for added visibility when towing.
The trucks’ available Duramax® 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel V8 engine produces 445 horsepower and 910 lb-ft of torque. The impressive engine allows the Silverado 3500 HD to tow up to 35,500 pounds when properly equipped.
