Want to drive a new midsize pickup truck around Peoria? It’s likely that your choice ultimately comes down to comparing the 2019 Ford Ranger vs. 2019 Chevy Colorado. Many East Peoria-area drivers may gravitate to the Colorado due to its longstanding history, but the new Ford Ranger’s arrival in the midsize pickup segment has caused quite the disruption, especially because it boasts a more powerful base engine, a superior tow rating, and unique features like Ford Co-Pilot360™. Compare the Ford midsize truck to the competition with Mike Murphy Ford!

Ford Ranger vs. Chevy Colorado: Performance

Performance is a huge priority for many truck drivers, no matter how big or small the pickup is. Here, the Ford Ranger delivers better results than the Chevy Colorado.

  • Ranger: With a 2.3L EcoBoost® engine paired with an electronic 10-speed automatic transmission with tow/haul mode, Pekin-area drivers can expect 270 hp and an EPA-estimated 21 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.
  • Colorado: The Colorado’s base engine is a 2.5L four-cylinder, mated to either a 6- or 8-speed automatic transmission. This setup is good for 181 hp and an EPA-estimated 20 mpg city and 26 mpg highway.

Ford Ranger vs. Chevy Colorado: Towing & Payload

Need a midsize pickup that has the strength to haul and tow all of your gear? Then the Ford Ranger is for you.

  • Payload: The Ford midsize truck offers a maximum payload of 1,860 pounds, as compared with the Colorado’s maximum payload of 1,548 pounds.
  • Tow Rating: Expect to tow up to 7,500 pounds when you’re behind the wheel of the Ranger. Driving the Colorado, you can reach a towing capacity of up to 7,700 pounds, but achieving this requires a switch to a diesel engine, which isn’t ideal for many drivers.

Ford Ranger vs. Chevy Colorado: Technology

Look forward to more high-tech features for less money with the Ford Ranger, instantly enhancing your Washington drive. The following technologies come standard on the Ranger:

  • Smart-Charging USB port
  • Ford MyKey®
  • FordPass Connect™ with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot
  • Ford SYNC®
  • Ford Applink®
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSC®)
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System™

Safety is also a top priority for the Ford Ranger, as evidenced by the all-new available Ford Co-Pilot 360™ technology. This suite adds a Lane-Keeping System and Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Cross-Traffic Alert for both truck and trailer, which makes it easier than ever to maneuver around a job site or deliver heavy cargo.
