Chevy Colorado vs. Ford Ranger

December 9th, 2021 by

While pickup trucks used to be behemoths, there are now quite a few smaller models available. If this is the type of truck you’re interested in, take a look at how the Chevy Colorado compares to the Ford Ranger in a couple of important areas:


The Chevy Colorado comes with an impressive array of standard tech features. First of all, you will get the very easy to use Chevrolet Infotainment 3 system with a seven-inch touchscreen. Other built-in components include:

  • Two USB ports
  • Bluetooth®
  • Android Auto™
  • Apple CarPlay®
  • A six-speaker stereo
  • Satellite radio

There are also lots of other things you can add, such as a Wi-Fi hot spot, a navigation system, and wireless device charging. While the Ford Ranger does come with Bluetooth® and a USB port, those are really the only notable standard tech features. To get anything else found in the base Chevy Colorado, you would need to upgrade.

Cargo Space

Two bed lengths are offered with the Chevy Colorado. The Extended cab has a 6-foot-2-inch bed, and the Crew cab will let you pick that one or a 5-foot-2-inch bed. No matter which one you choose, you will get built-in bumper steps and hand grips. There are also several tie-down points. You can get your truck equipped with an EZ Lift & Lower tailgate as well. Both Ford Ranger beds are shorter than those of the Chevy Colorado. The SuperCab comes with a 6-foot bed and the SuperCrew has a 5-foot bed.

A test drive can help you make up your mind about a truck, and you can get behind the wheel of the new Chevy Colorado at Carlen Motors near Carthage.
