The 2023 Chevrolet Colorado has a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds when properly equipped, which is top of the range for mid-size pickup trucks, but maximum towing numbers don’t necessarily guarantee a stress-free towing experience. My focus in this article is specifically to evaluate how well the Colorado performs in the off-road-focused Trail Boss trim level while towing a camper trailer over steep elevations.
What Is the 2023 Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss?
The Colorado Trail Boss starts as the basic WT trim level and noticeably adds 2 inches of lift, 3.6 inches to the track width and 32-inch diameter Goodyear Wrangler Territory A/T tires. Going along with that is the G80 auto-locking rear differential and skid plates to protect the most vulnerable bits. I like that it starts with the WT trim level because many off-roaders today require fancy, more expensive trim levels. The Colorado Trail Boss is for those who want a truck that gets things done without needing the extra costs of leather, heated and ventilated seats, and high-end sound systems.
