Frequently Asked Questions | How Do I Do It?

Now that you know that your 2021 Chevy Colorado can plow snow, you might have a bunch of other followup questions. Well, the good news is that you are not alone and many other owners of the 2021 Chevy Colorado or potential owners have the same or similar questions.

●     I just got my all-new Chevy Colorado! How do I install a snowplow on it?

  • This is a great question only because there is no one size fits all answer to this. The installation of a snowplow differs from vehicle to vehicle but the good news is the installing of the Chevy Colorado is quite simple.
    • You will either have to bolt your snowplow directly to your Chevy Colorado’s frame using custom brackets or you will need to install the snow plot on a front mounting hitch, that way you will be able to take it off with ease.
    • Please note that both of these methods depend solely on what kind of snowplow you end up purchasing.

●     What size snowplow would I need for my Chevy Colorado?

  • When it comes to what size snowplow you should get for your Chevy Colorado, the most important rule is that the snowplow must be wider than your Chevy Colorado’s track width.
    • The track width of the Chevy Colorado is 62.4 inches so you would want to shop and look for a snowplow that is wider than this.
    • Most snow plows do offer up to at least 80 inches so you should not have too hard of a time finding one.

 

●     What are some common mistakes people make while plowing snow?

  • When working in tough weather situations such as heavy rain and snow, it is best to be overly cautious if possible. This is especially true when it comes to operating machinery.
    • The most common mistake owners did while using their Chevy Chevrolet to plow or move the snow is that they were actually pushing the banks of snow/pile of snow rather than actually plowing it.
    • Another common mistake people often make while using their Chevy Chevrolet to plow snow is rushing the shift between the “drive” and “reverse” which will cause it to throttle up before the shift is even completed.
    • These mistakes while common are not too dangerous but if you are unsure of what to do, it is best to research and ask questions before you go out and do it. The only thing scarier than tough weather conditions is trying to operate a machine during that time. If driving during snowy conditions is scary, then just imagine having a giant snowplow attached to your car during this time and you not fully understanding how to use it.
    • Another tip is to make sure there are no people, especially small children around when you are operating your car and/or plowing the snow.

●     So Chevy Colorados can plow snow, but are they good at plowing snow?

  • This question is a common one and it is also quite understandable why it is so common. Just because a vehicle is said to be able to do the job, it does not mean that it will do a great job right? This is where it is important to read the fine print.
    • However, you can rest assured that there is no funny business going on with the 2021 Chevy Colorado. Most owners note that the Chevy Colorado can plow and move snow very well.
    • This is because the GVWR (also known as “gross vehicle weight rating”) of the Chevy Colorado is over 2,500 pounds.
    • Since it has such a high gross vehicle weight rating then you can rest assured knowing that your Chevy Colorado can handle the extra weight.
    • Also, with its StabiliTrak stability control system along with the Chevy Colorado sand traction control, it is no secret that the Chevy Colorado can handle most if not most terrains. And yes, this includes snowy terrains.
