2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Towing Acceleration Video

December 8, 2014

2015 Chevrolet Colorado

Check out video of our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado accelerating from 0 to 60 mph with 6,122 pounds in-tow. Take the jump for the numbers behind it and comparison to an unladen Colorado...

Our four-wheel-drive Colorado, with the 3.6-liter V6 and Z82 trailering package, has a tow rating of 7,000 pounds. We loaded it up to 87-percent capacity (2,210-lb of trailer and 3,912-lb of Mercedes-Benz B-Class) for what was a visually uneventful acceleration run. But uneventful is exactly what you want in real-world freeway merging. Here's how it looked on paper:

0-30 = 6.2 seconds
0-45 = 10.5
0-60 = 16.9
0-60 = 16.5 (with one-foot of rollout)
0-75 = 26.2
1/4 mile = 21.1 @ 68.9 mph

We achieved these figures using manual-shift and tow-haul modes in the trailered truck (blue). In the trailer-free Colorado (red) we used manual-shift and normal mode. Chart below:
