2020 Ford Ranger vs Chevy Colorado Performance

The 2020 Ford Ranger keeps it simple with one simple, powerful engine.

The Ranger also offers off-road packages that include tuned suspension, off-road tires, locking rear differential, skid plates, crawl control, and an advanced terrain management system.

When looking at the Chevy Colorado, there’s simply no comparison with the base engine. The Colorado’s entry engine is far behind the Ranger in performance capability. Chevy’s secondary V6 engine has more horsepower but still has lower torque ratings than the Ranger, which for the price increase is underwhelming.
