2023 Chevrolet Colorado First Look Review: The New Boss
The 2023 Colorado’s 0-60 mph times haven’t been published, but the more important towing figures have. The low-output engine can tow up to 3,500 pounds while both the Turbo Plus and Turbo High-Output models manage a much better 7,700 lbs. The ZR2 has the most powerful engine as standard but because of its specific suitability for off-roading, its towing capacity is limited to 6,000 lbs.
Rear-wheel drive is standard but four-wheel drive is available – and standard on specific trims. Whereas base models have an open rear differential, the Trail Boss and Z71 have a limited-slip diff and the ZR2 has power-locking front/rear differentials. Hill descent control is standard on the Trail Boss and Z71.
To suit a variety of driving conditions, there are five selectable driving modes: Normal, Tow/Haul, Off-Road, Terrain, and Baja. The Baja Mode is specifically for high-speed desert running.
