2020 Ford Ranger vs Chevy Colorado: Performance Highlights 

The base Chevy Colorado model suffers a little under its comparison to the Ford Ranger. Look at these vital performance specs to see why. 

  • Engine: The Colorado upgraded its engine for 2020, and, with 308-hp, its 3.6L V6 engine has a little more horsepower than the Ford Ranger’s standard 270-hp. The Colorado standard engine gives you 275 lb-ft of torque. But the Ecoboost® engine on the Ford Ranger gives you 310 lb-ft of torque –very useful for towing and hauling. 
  • Transmission: The 2020 Chevy Colorado lets Conway drivers choose between 6- and 8-speed automatic transmissions. The 2020 Ford Ranger gives you even more control for tough hauls with class-exclusive 10-speed automatic transmission. 
  • Fuel Economy Ratings: When it comes to city driving, the 2020 Ford Ranger has a little bit of an edge. You get an EPA-estimated 21 mpg city with the Ranger, while the Colorado has a max 20 mpg city.

As you can see, the Ford Ranger’s superior torque and transmission make this Ford midsize truck an excellent choice for work or play in Murrells Inlet.

2020 Ford Ranger vs Chevy Colorado: Towing and Payload 

One of the most common reasons Florence drivers want a Ford midsize truck is its ability to carry tons of stuff from A to B. When properly equipped, the Ranger tows 7,500 pounds. While the Colorado is mostly the same, you can get 7,700 pounds of towing capacity, but only by switching to a diesel engine. The Colorado can carry 1,548 pounds of payload, but the Ranger is the truck to beat with a maximum payload capacity of 1,860 pounds.
