When Ford reintroduced the Ranger pickup to American truck buyers, many rejoiced. Not only was this long-time favorite making a return, but it gave them a more-than-viable alternative to the Chevrolet Colorado and similar mid-size trucks. The new Ford Ranger comes back with an impressive new appearance, offering the rugged styling and capability that West Georgia drivers want.

When we took a look at how the Ford Ranger matches up against the Chevrolet Colorado, one of the very first things we considered was power. That's because we know that our Dallas GA customers count on their truck to perform day in and day out, so we wanted to see how these two worked out. The Range easily took this fight, since its standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine cranks out 270 horsepower and a best-in-class 310 pound-feet of torque. The Colorado, on the other hand, can only coax 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque out of its standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.

The Ford Ranger pairs its engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission, while the Colorado employs a six-speed automatic. Douglasville drivers commuting on I-20 will appreciate the fact that the Ranger doesn't have to work as hard to get to top speed, while the Colorado puts its engine through more of a strain on each run through the gears.

We invite you to make the trip northeast from Carrollton GA to our Ford showroom in Villa Rica and take a closer look at the Ranger pickup. We're pretty sure that you'll like what you see!
