2016 Chevrolet Colorado vs. 2016 Ford F-150 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford F-150 than in the Chevrolet Colorado. The Chevrolet Colorado offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Ford F-150, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

Convenience
With the Ford F-150 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Colorado, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Chevrolet Colorado is a better financial choice over the Ford F-150, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Colorado carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford F-150.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Colorado is much slimmer than the Ford F-150, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Chevrolet Colorado is slightly shorter than the Ford F-150, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Chevrolet Colorado transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Ford F-150.

Handling
The Chevrolet Colorado has a smaller turning radius than the Ford F-150, allowing you to more easily get in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to tow, the Chevrolet Colorado will do just as well as the Ford F-150, since they have about the same towing capacity. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Colorado is clearly outclassed by the Ford F-150.

Utility
The Chevrolet Colorado has less seating than the Ford F-150, making the Ford F-150 the better choice if you often have passengers.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Colorado comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford F-150.
