The mid-size truck segment makes a lot of sense for many Monticello and Rogers drivers who just don’t need the overwhelming capability of a modern full-size truck. That’s one of the reasons so many are now flocking to Ford mid-size trucks. Ford is not the only pickup maker in this segment, however, and the current Chevy Colorado is no slouch. In a direct Ford Ranger vs. Chevy Colorado comparison, let’s see how both compare. If you have any questions about this comparison, get in touch with us, and we’ll be happy to answer!
