What is the towing capacity for a 2001 Chevy S10 4Cyl. Automatic pickup truck
6000 pounds (2722 kg.). HTH. -Jim
I think that is way too high Jim. I found all sorts of claims on the net but most say 3,500 pounds. I would not tow more than 2,000 pounds.
Thank You very much for your help,hopefully this will help. Settle a Dispute,between Me and Childhood Friend. But to no avail,he still believes that it is not possible. For a S10 Pickup to be able to pull,a 14' Fish Boat and Trailer. Which ways a lot less then 2,000 lbs.,without it Destroying the Transmission. All I can say is,that some people just won't believe the Facts. When it is Staring them,right in the Face.
Install an aftermarket transmission cooler if you are concerned about over heating the transmission. Keep a close eye on the ATF color.
F O R, I thought that too. The owner's manual for my '03 is where I got that figure from. Maybe GM wanted to sell some transmissions, lol. -Jim
6,000 lbs is pretty optimistic on GM's part. Their full size trucks barely tow that much at least for the light duty ones.
