When it comes to fitting capability into a nimble and parkable package, midsize pickup trucks go the distance. Smaller than half-ton trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado 1500, this class lets drivers have the cargo carrying and towing ability they need without sacrificing the smaller nature of a sedan or crossover.
For years, the Chevrolet Colorado has been a staple and leader in this class. Delivering Chevrolet’s rock-solid reliability, a substantial number of configurations and an interior that is likely to let you forget you’re in a truck, the Colorado is a small truck that doesn’t ask you to make big compromises.

When it comes to seeing just how groundbreaking the Chevrolet Colorado has been for drivers in Portage La Prairie, Manitoba and beyond, one of the best things you can do is compare it to other models in its class. Today, we’re going to be matching up the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado with Honda’s unibody midsize truck, the Ridgeline.
While Chevrolet employs classic body-on-frame construction for their Colorado, the Ridgeline prefers crossover/car-grade unibody building. Despite this substantial difference in approach, the two models compete in the same class. Here’s how they measure up!

As you can see in the above chart, the two trucks are hardly comparable. Setting aside the pricing difference, the Colorado and Ridgeline are built for very different purposes. While the Colorado gives you the configurability and choices of a larger pickup truck, the Ridgeline prefers a one-size-fits-all approach that just doesn’t line up with what we know about pickup truck drivers.
For the Colorado, this tailored approach means being able to deliver massive fuel efficiency or over 300 horsepower, depending on your preference.
