Ford vs. Chevy. It’s one of America’s great rivalries, like the Hatfield and McCoys and the Yankees and the Red Sox. The two automotive giants have been fighting it out for over 100 years, and their pickup trucks have been broiled in battle since 1918. In the last half-decade, gasoline has been thrown on that fire, with both brands introducing new mid-size pickups.
In 2015, Chevrolet introduced the second generation of the Colorado (still on sale today), and just last year, after a seven-year hiatus, Ford reintroduced the Ranger to the U.S. market. These small trucks don’t offer the size, power, and capability of their full-size showroom mates, the Chevrolet Silverado and the Ford F-150, but they’re not afraid of a hard day’s work. Plus, they’re generally more affordable than their bigger brothers and they’re easier to live with on a daily basis, especially if you live in an urban area. But which is best?
