Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Colorado offers passengers in its extended cab about the same head- and legroom as the Ford F-350. The Chevrolet Colorado offers just a little more head- and legroom than the Ford F-350, 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). Clearly, the Chevrolet Colorado is a better financial choice over the Ford F-350, 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-350.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Colorado is much slimmer than the Ford F-350, 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-350.

Handling
The Chevrolet Colorado has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford F-350, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Ford F-350 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-350.

Powertrain
The Chevrolet Colorado offers much less torque than the Ford F-350, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The Chevrolet Colorado has less seating than the Ford F-350, making the Ford F-350 the better choice if you often have passengers. The Ford F-350 has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the Chevrolet Colorado.

The Chevrolet Colorado comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford F-350.
