When it comes to pickup trucks that fit in your garage, there's a handful of options to choose from near Delphos. With the Chevrolet Colorado and Ford Maverick, both manufacturers have created strong alternatives to their larger full-size siblings. The Maverick takes a new approach with its compact unibody design, while the Colorado provides a more traditional body-on-frame structure without the compromises of a full-size pickup. However, there are some drawbacks to the urban-focused Maverick that you may not have considered before.

Versatility and Capability

  • The Colorado has a best-in-class towing capacity of up to 7,700 pounds compared to the Maverick, capable of only towing up to 4,000 pounds. Better towing capacity translates to better performance when hauling your boat or camper to St. Marys OH for the weekend.
  • The Maverick only offers a 54-inch bed compared to the Colorado with options for a 62-inch short bed or 74-inch long bed. Configured with a maximum payload rating of 1,548 pounds, the Colorado is ready for your weekend hardware store run to Van Wert OH.
  • While both the Maverick and Colorado can be equipped with skid plates, the Chevy Colorado provides better off-road performance thanks to its optional locking front and rear differentials. Better traction helps you conquer inclement weather in Lima OH with confidence.

Performance and Configuration Options

The Maverick has a maximum of 8.6 inches of ground clearance compared to a generous 10 inches available with the Colorado ZR2 trim. Both the Ford Maverick and Chevy Colorado offer two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations, but the Colorado remains a clear winner when it comes to available engine options. While efficient, the Maverick lacks the grunt for job sites from Wapakoneta OH to Continental OH.

  • The Ford Maverick only offers two engine options with a maximum of 250 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque from its 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine.
  • The Chevy Colorado provides three choices ranging from the powerful 308 horsepower 3.6L V6 to the work-ready DURAMAX® 2.8L with 369 pound-feet of torque.
