Comparison Review

Passengers in the extended cab may find themselves a little more squished in the Chevrolet Colorado than the Ford F-250. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Chevrolet Colorado and the Ford F-250.

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-250, when considering MSRP.

Since the Chevrolet Colorado is much slimmer than the Ford F-250, 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 Ford F-250.

In terms of towing capacity, the Ford F-250 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 Ford F-250.

With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Colorado doesn't do as good a job transmitting horsepower to its wheels as the Ford F-250.

The Chevrolet Colorado has less seating than the Ford F-250, making the Ford F-250 the better choice if you often have passengers. The Ford F-250 has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the Chevrolet Colorado.
