Here at Don Johnson Motors, we have a lot of love for both the 2019 Ford Ranger and the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado.

Compare the Ford Ranger vs. Chevy Colorado in-depth to learn more!


Performance Specs: Ford Ranger vs. Chevy Colorado

Both the Ford and Chevy midsize trucks are strong performers in their segment, but since each offers different set of advantages, you’ll want to think carefully about your decision! Here are the most important factors:

  • Many drivers prefer the higher torque and fuel economy provided by diesel engines. Indeed, when the Colorado is so equipped, it offers up to 30 mpg (EPA-estimated) on the highway. Since the Ranger isn’t offered with a diesel engine, its most efficient trim can only deliver 26 mpg highway.
  • The baseline Ranger engine offers an impressive 271 hp. The otherwise-comparable Colorado only comes standard with a 200 hp engine. However, since the Colorado offers numerous upgrade options, and starts at a much lower price, it might be easier to find a Colorado that satisfies all your needs. Note that both trucks offer more starting hp than a similarly-priced Toyota Tacoma.

Utility and Capability: Ford Ranger

There’s no reason to settle for a pickup that’s only going to hold you back! Whether you opt for the Ranger or the Colorado, you’ll be able to tackle a wide variety of obstacles. However, each offers unique advantages, and you’ll want to choose carefully:

  • Although the Colorado starts with a less powerful engine, both models can tow up to 3,500 pounds without a powertrain upgrade. However, those who upgrade the Colorado will enjoy a higher maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds, compared to 7,500 pounds with the Ranger. The Ranger maintains a significant payload advantage.
  • With the Colorado, you’ll have the opportunity to choose a 5-foot or a 6-foot bed with a your passenger-ready “Extended Cab”. This, along with the Chevy’s higher ride quality, makes the Colorado slightly better-suited to collaborative jobs and longer journeys. While the 2019 Ranger’s interior is offered with a comparable “SuperCrew®” cab, the latter can only be equipped with a 5-foot bed. If you’re interested in other Ranger bed sizes, you’ll need to choose the smaller SuperCab option.
