2020 Chevrolet Colorado MPG and Fuel Economy

The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado is an excellent choice for those who require a pickup truck that will not disappoint but don't need the size or capabilities of a full-sized truck.

The pickup has an impressive towing capability and also facilitates incredible steering and handling that is easy to control. But these are not all that the 2020 Colorado strives to offer.

The model is highly customizable. Buyers can choose between two cab configurations, three engines, five trim levels, and two-bed lengths. Other features too can be personalized. This means that you can design your 2020 Chevrolet Colorado as you would like.

MPG and Fuel Economy

The fuel economy ratings of the 2020 Colorado stand at 20 mpg (city) and 26 mpg when you go for the automatic transmission.

If you choose the V-6 engine with all-wheel-drive, you get 17 mpg (city) and 24 mpg (highway), which is the same as those of the previous years'.

The EPA has rated the rear-wheel-drive diesel as the most efficient power train of the segment, with 20 mpg (city) and 30 mpg (highway). This shows just how capable the Colorado is on the road.

Performance and Towing

The 2020 Toyota Colorado is available in an extended cab and crew-cab body styles, two-bed lengths, and five trim levels. You can choose between the entry-level Base trim, Work, Truck (WT), LT, Z71, and Z72.

While the Base comes with a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder engine that delivers 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque, the engine offering increases as you go up the trims.

For the WT model and higher, you can choose between either a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers 308 horsepower and 275 pound-feet of torque that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission, or a 2.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine that produces 181 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. This comes with a six-speed automatic transmission.

For pickups, towing and payload capacities are essential considerations, and the 2020 Colorado does not disappoint. The base trim with a four-cylinder engine grants a towing potential of a whopping 3500 pounds, while the V-6 powered model can tow up to 7000 pounds. Not only this, but the diesel-powered version can pull as much as 7700 pounds.
