The Chevrolet Colorado and Silverado are Two of the Best Trucks for Towing

2020 Chevrolet Silverado | Fort Meade, FL

As the pickup truck segment becomes more and more competitive, choosing the right model for your needs is harder than ever. If you’ve been looking for a vehicle to tow your camper or boat around Ft. Meade, consider the Chevrolet Colorado or Silverado 1500, both of which were recently named to U.S. News’ list of the best trucks for towing.

The 2020 Chevrolet Colorado

With a maximum towing capability of 7,700 pounds (the best of any compact pickup), it’s no surprise that U.S. News included the 2020 Colorado on its list. The publication’s editors were particularly fond of its available 2.8-liter turbocharged diesel engine, which puts out an impressive 181 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Alongside its remarkable performance, it also provides an EPA-estimated 30 mpg.

You’d have to look extremely hard to find anything U.S. News’ Nick Kurcsewski didn’t love about the 2020 Silverado 1500. Dubbing it “the light-duty truck towing champion,” he raved about its 13,400-pound towing capacity, 15 available camera views, and ability to crush the Ford F-150’s specs by triple-digits.

Chevrolet One of the Longest-Lasting Car Brands, Says Study

Long Lasting Chevrolet Brand in Fort Meade, FL

In 2019, iSeeCars.com analyzed over 15.8 million cars in 2019 to find out the longest-lasting car brands. Their sole aim was to figure out which makes and models had made it past the 200,000-mile mark on the odometer. The study then ranked vehicles and brands by the percentage of vehicles still on the road after 200,000 miles.

iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly cited “truck-like SUVs and pickup trucks” as the vehicles most likely to last. This category includes the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, the Chevrolet Tahoe and the Suburban.

Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban

Both of these full-size SUVs ranked high on the chart of overall highest-ranking vehicles. The Chevrolet Suburban came in with a rating of 4.9 percent, while the Tahoe was 4.1 percent. The industry average for vehicles overall was only 1 percent, and the industry average for all SUVs was even smaller at 0.9 percent.

Chevrolet Silverado 1500

In the Longest-Lasting Pickup Truck category in the iSeeCars study, 2.0 percent of the vehicles still on the road after passing the 200,000-mile mark are Chevy Silverado 1500 models. This puts them above the segment average of 1.8 percent.

When it came to the longest-lasting brands, Chevrolet came in at 4th place overall, with 1.4 percent of vehicles on the road over 200,000 miles hailing from the bowtie brand.
