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 GMC Sierra 1500 than in the Chevrolet Colorado. The GMC Sierra 1500 offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Colorado, making it a little roomier and more comfortable.

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).

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Colorado doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the GMC Sierra 1500.

Handling
The Chevrolet Colorado has a smaller turning radius than the GMC Sierra 1500, allowing you to more easily get in and out of tight spots.

Performance

Utility
