2015 Chevrolet Colorado vs. 2015 RAM 3500 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 RAM 3500 than in the Chevrolet Colorado. The Chevrolet Colorado will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the RAM 3500.

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 RAM 3500, 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 RAM 3500.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Colorado is much slimmer than the RAM 3500, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Chevrolet Colorado, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the RAM 3500.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Colorado offers much less torque than the RAM 3500, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the RAM 3500 is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Colorado for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Colorado is clearly outclassed by the RAM 3500.

Utility
The Chevrolet Colorado has less seating than the RAM 3500, making the RAM 3500 the better choice if you often have passengers.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Colorado comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the RAM 3500.
