I ordered a 2015 Colorado in December. It is just being built and will be delivered to the dealer in FDebruary sometime. Sorry but no information specific to your question until I get it and start towing my A Frame.

Heres` a site to a Colorado forum, there`s a thread in there somewhere about towing. They are nice trucks, I bet they will pull your A122S just fine.

I looked at a new Colorado and then went over to my Nissan dealer and bought a 2015 Frontier king cab. I'm very pleased with it and it cost $4,000 less.

Not sure what the cost of your Frontier has to do with the original question regarding fuel mileage on a 2015 Colorado.........but congrats on your new purchase.

We pull our aframe with a 2014 tacoma dbl cab trd 4x4. It pulls it great, and we don't even know it's behind us! Best selling midsize truck for a reason. 😃

We used to pull a jayco 19 ft jay feather with a 2005 Colorado 5 cylinder it pulled it pretty decent and decent mileage. I am sure the newer ones are better and pulling an a frame should be no issue

2015 Colorado has already had recalls. I've heard many complaints on the Chevy forum.

most new model cars and trucks go through about a year of initial problems, be they TSBs or in the absolute worse case scenario ... a recall.
Im a strong believer, in purchasing after a couple of years of production ... but hey .. thats just me.
my tried and true frontier has just hit a 100,000 miles ... and would buy another one of these trucks in a heartbeat, but even this great little truck has had a few issues.
