2020 Chevy Colorado vs. 2020 Chevy Silverado 1500

Chevy trucks have a history of long-lasting durability and versatility, whether on the job or a night of dining in Lincoln. You know you want a Chevy truck from Sid Dillon. It’s just a matter of deciding what truck’s best for you – the 2020 mid-size Chevy Colorado or the full-size light duty Chevy Silverado. Let’s compare the two models.

Mid-Size vs. Full-Size

Knowing how much truck you need is the first question, and it often comes down to size. If you’re going to use your truck for hauling and towing, a full-size is likely the better option. The smaller size and sportier features of a mid-size are great for occasional off-roading while still being capable of towing smaller loads like RVs and boats from Omaha to your favorite places to reconnect with nature.

The Chevy Colorado can tow a maximum of 3,500 pounds, while the Silverado can tow up to 7,900 pounds. Some other important measurements:

  • Height: Colorado is 70.1 inches tall. Silverado is 78.35 inches.
  • Length: Colorado is 212.7 inches. Silverado is 230.7 inches without the rear bumper.
  • Maximum Payload: Colorado can haul up to 1,578 pounds in its bed, while the Silverado can hold 2,250 pounds.

When Price Matters

The Chevy Colorado has an MSRP starting at $21,300 to give you truck features at a lower price. The Chevy Silverado, starting at $28,300, can be seen as a work truck investment, while the higher trim packages turn it into a luxury vehicle.

A mid-size truck is less expensive to operate on the streets of Fremont and Blair. With a 575-pound difference in their curb weights, the lighter Chevy Colorado’s 200-hp engine is just right. Its combined gas mileage is 22 mpg, significantly better than the Silverado at 17 mpg with its 285-hp engine. However, what the Silverado lacks in fuel efficiency it compensates in towing and hauling capacity, and the rugged capabilities that are sometimes necessary during the Columbus winter.
