Chevrolet Colorado vs. Chevrolet Silverado – Performance

The main difference between the 2020 Chevy Colorado vs. Silverado is power. Do you need a pickup for towing or hauling? How big of a load do you need to haul? For truly heavy loads, the Chevy Silverado may be the better choice, with a maximum payload of 2,250 pounds vs. 1,578 pounds with the Colorado.

There is also a significant difference in towing capacity. At 13,400 pounds vs. 7,700 pounds respectively, the Silverado can tow nearly twice as much as the Colorado. Both truck options offer advanced features as Chevy continues to push the envelope on innovation, as seen with the latest Malibu updates.

Chevrolet Colorado vs. Chevrolet Silverado – Economy

The manufacturer’s suggested retail price of the Chevy Colorado comes in at $7,000 less than the Chevy Silverado. Fuel economy is another factor to take into consideration, especially if you drive a lot of highway miles around the Hoover area. While both models get an estimated 20 mpg in the city, the Colorado outperforms the Silverado on the highway with 30 mpg, compared to 26 mpg from the Silverado. So, if your hauling and towing needs aren’t such that require the power of the Silverado, then the Chevy Colorado might just be the pickup truck for you.
