I have a 2005 Colorado 4x4 Z71. I had to get out the manuel to figure it out. It was not that hard but 2 buttons had to be pushed at the same time. It shows neutral on the dash. Just for your info it weighed 3685 lbs with full gas tank. I really like it, but as of now I tow a Honda CRV. Vet Man

I know I'm a little late responding to this topic but I;ve been towing a '05 Canyon (Same as Colorado) for almost a year now. Been coast to coast with no problems and it is a great toad!
I use a SMC plug n play brake with a Blue Ox tow rig and base plate. Good combo.

The 2006 is towable four down. Before buying look at the owner manual page 4-24 to see what you have to do to put the transfer case into netural and the transmission set for towing. It is not the smoothest thing to do.

RV_Boy,

Not sure what you're referring to, mine is a 2005 but I dont think the 2006 is any different. setting the transfer case into neutral involves pushing two dash mounted buttons for about 10 seconds, with the transmission in neitral and the engine off. not sure how it could be any simpler.

I own a '05 Canyon Crew Cab 4WD, same as Colorado, and it is very easy to tow with all wheels down. Just push two buttons on dash together and it shifts into neutral. Even the odometer does not advance when towing. Read the owners manual though to get the procedure down right.
