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.
