Ford F-150 vs Chevrolet Colorado

Pickup trucks are built to travel on city streets for work or off the beaten path for play. Two of the most durable trucks out there today are the Ford F-150 and the Chevrolet Colorado. Still, only one can be the ultimate road warrior for your daily excursions around Mount Pocono, Tobyhanna, Scranton, Pocono Pines and Blakeslee.

In this 2018 Ford F-150 vs. 2018 Chevrolet Colorado comparison, the team at Ray Price Ford compared these trucks to give you the details on their performance, interior features, and safety options. After you're done reading, you'll know for sure which pickup is right for you.

Ford F-150 vs Chevrolet Colorado: Truck Performance

The Ford F-150 and Chevrolet Colorado each showcase their talents in power, beginning with their respective engines. The F-150 has five different engine options, each with impressive horsepower and torque ratings:

  • 3.3L Ti-VCT V6: 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.7L EcoBoost® V6: 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque
  • 5.0L Ti-VCT V8: 395 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5L EcoBoost® V6: 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque
  • High-output 3.5L EcoBoost®: 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque

The Chevy Colorado offers three engine options, including a 3.6L V6. Unfortunately, even its biggest engine option only produces 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.

It's clear that the power is there, but can either truck handle your workload? The 2018 Chevrolet Colorado has a maximum towing capacity of 7,700 pounds, which is very impressive. However, it's not as capable as the 2018 Ford F-150, as this truck can tow over 10,500 pounds!

Ford F-150 vs Chevrolet Colorado: Truck Features

Both pickup trucks come with many of the same standard convenience features, like an adjustable steering wheel, auto-off headlights, and a back-up camera. The F-150 also comes standard with power steering, variable speed intermittent wipers, and cruise control. The Colorado doesn't.

Each pickup truck can seat up to five occupants, depending on which cab style you choose. While the interior dimensions are fairly comparable, you'll find a bit more room in the Ford F-150, with 66.7 inches of front shoulder room and 62.5 inches of front hip room. If you're sitting in the Chevy Colorado, you'll only have 57.5 inches of front shoulder room and 55 inches of front hip room.

The new Ford F-150 turns the truck pickup game on its head with its new suite of technology features.

Ford F-150 vs Chevrolet Colorado: Truck Safety

You may be spending a good amount of time in your pickup truck, so you want to feel safe in it. The good news is that the 2018 Ford-150 has no shortage of safety features.

One of its most prominent safety features in the F-150 is the available Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection. This system uses sensors to scan the road ahead of you. If it detects people or other vehicles while you're driving, it'll send an audible and visual alert to get you to act. If you don't respond in time, the brakes can be applied automatically.

While the Chevrolet Colorado offers its own set of reliable safety features, it doesn't come with anything like the Pre-Collision Assist with Pedestrian Detection feature in the Ford F-150.
