Comparison Review

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.

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.

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.

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.

The Chevrolet Colorado offers much less torque than the Ford F-150, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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.

When considering towing capacity, the Chevrolet Colorado is clearly the choice over the Ford F-150 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Colorado is clearly outclassed by the Ford F-150.

The Chevrolet Colorado has less seating than the Ford F-150, making the Ford F-150 the better choice if you often have passengers. The Chevrolet Colorado has a little less cargo capacity than the Ford F-150 for hauling material.

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