How Does the All-New Ford Ranger Match up With the Chevrolet Colorado?

Ford reintroduced the company's popular Ranger pickup to the American truck-buying public, and it's been well-received both by shoppers and the automotive press. This pickup, which boasts a handsome, aggressive exterior, offers Kansas drivers the capability, performance, and versatility they need from a daily driver. If you've been wondering how the Ford Ranger compares to rivals like the Chevy Colorado, you're in luck. We're here to detail the differences.

Performance is always a prime concern for our customers, so it's well worth noting that the Ford Ranger is equipped with a standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine that makes 270 horsepower and a best-in-class 310 pound-feet of torque. That's far more power than the Colorado's 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and its output of 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. When you consider that the Ford Ranger also comes with a 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission that delivers far smoother gear changes than the six-speed automatic used by the Colorado, and it's easy to see which pickup is better at getting you down the road.

The Ranger also offers a comprehensive array of standard safety features like pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, which isn't offered as even an option for the Colorado. For safety reasons alone, the Ranger is the right choice on Kansas roads and highways.
