There’s nothing quite like an old-fashioned exchange. While the 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 will inherit a ZR2 trim from the Colorado, the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado is adding a Trail Boss package like what you’d find on its larger sibling. Who wins out in this trade? Truck lovers in Rockland, Maine.

Red tow hooks
These features make the 2022 Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss a must if you love off-road adventuring.
The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado is one of the premier trucks in the midsize pickup segment. In addition to the new Trail Boss package, the 2022 Chevrole2 Colorado offers must-haves like two-tier truck bed storage with 13 tie-downs, built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi® Hotspot capabilities, and a trio of powerful engine options.
The U.S. News & World Report’s “11 Best Diesel Pickup Trucks of 2021” list lauded all three Chevy trucks as some of the best to run off a diesel powertrain: the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, Silverado 1500, and Silverado HD.
The 2021 Chevy Colorado removed its base trim from the prior year. It boasts a 7-inch touch screen to go along with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. An available Duramax® 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel four-cylinder engine generates 181 horsepower, 369 pound-feet of torque, and can make your 2021 Colorado tow up to 7,700 pounds, the model’s max capacity.
The 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 sports an available Duramax 3.0-liter Turbo-Diesel which produces a best-in-class 277 horsepower and a whopping 460 pound-feet of torque. Its 9,500 pounds of max towing strength represents an increase of 1,900 pounds from the previous model. Trailer Length Indicator and Jackknife Alert help you stay safe while trailering.
The 2021 Chevy Silverado HD is a heavy-duty pickup truck whose Duramax 6.6-liter Turbo-Diesel creates 445 horsepower and 910 pound-feet of torque, all of which it channels through an Allison® 10-speed automatic transmission. Plus, its best-in-class tow rating of 36,000 pounds solves problems at work and makes it easy to haul a camper for family vacations.
Both the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and the Chevrolet Colorado were recently named to the list of the 13 Best Trucks for Towing. Compiled every year by U.S. News and World Report, this list considers the towing capability of every truck on the market, calculating which is best for those who demand top-tier performance when towing and hauling. Given their legacy of quality, it’s no surprise the 2020 Silverado and Colorado each earned a spot on the list.
The 2020 Colorado will tow up to 7,700 pounds when equipped with an impressive 2.8-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, offering the best towing capacity among any midsize truck on the market. Plus, it’s remarkably efficient, which saves you money at the pump.
The Silverado has an impressive 13,400-pound towing capacity, which is also best in its class for light-duty full-size trucks – including the Ford F-150 and Ram 1500. The Silverado 1500 has an optional 6.2-liter V8 engine that generates a whopping 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission, while features such as four-wheel drive, a Max Trailering Package, and twenty-inch wheels also improve performance.
Chevrolet also offers several trailering safety systems on newer model years. The Technology Package comes with up to 15 camera views to make it easier to hitch a trailer and to see around your vehicle as you reverse. There’s also Trailer Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, and Auto Grade braking, and even an available app to make trailering easier.
