2020 Ford Ranger vs 2020 Chevrolet Colorado

Serving Charlotte, NC

After disappearing from the market for many years, the Ford Ranger has made a triumphant return for the 2020 model year. The Ford Ranger gets some notable updates this year, including a new off-road package added to the FX2 trim level. The latest Ranger also receives some minor changes to its various trim levels. The vehicle also stands out for its quick acceleration capabilities. It is also equipped with several advanced driver-assist safety aids, which is also not a standard offering among trucks on the market. The Ranger belongs to a competitive class of vehicles that includes the 2020 Chevrolet Colorado. The Ranger surpasses Colorado in several ways, including more comfortable seats and more off-road capabilities.

Comfort & Interior

The Ford Ranger stands out for its lavish interior with plenty of features to keep you and your passengers happy, relaxed, and entertained at all trim levels. The latest Ranger is available in two body styles at all trim levels: a crew cab with a five-foot bed and an extended cab with a six-foot bed. At a minimum, the Ford Ranger offers a cabin that is well-equipped with the basics. Air conditioning comes standard, unlike many other base-level trucks on the market. You'll get a four-speaker stereo too, and the base trim even gets a WiFi hotspot. Some driver-assist safety aids are standard as well, including automatic emergency braking and forward-collision warning. You can add on a package for a larger display screen and a sound system with six speakers. A Bang & Olufsen sound system, an eight-inch display screen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, keyless entry, and additional safety features such as lane-keep assist, pedestrian detection, and rear cross-traffic alert are standard on the higher trim levels. The Chevrolet Colorado, in contrast, does not offer as many base features. You'll have to add on amenities that come standard with the base Ranger, such as a locking tailgate and a WiFi hotspot. The Chevrolet also has fewer standard safety features.


The Ford Ranger is available with one engine across all trims. There is also one standard transmission, which is a 10-speed automatic. The engine that powers this year's Ranger is a 2.3L with four cylinders. This engine creates a maximum of 270 HP and 310 LB-FT of torque. The engine is a standard gasoline engine. Two-wheel drive is standard on most trims, while four-wheel drive is available. The Chevy Colorado, in comparison, gets a base engine that only creates 200 HP.

Exterior Design

The Ranger's appearance is accentuated with 16-inch wheels, a locking tailgate, and automatic headlights at the base trim level. Alloy wheels come standard on the higher-level trims. Packages are available to add unique chrome or black exterior color schemes. The Chevrolet Colorado has fewer customization packages and has a lower front air dam that limits its off-road capabilities.
