The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

5.0
5.2

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2021 Chevy Colorado’s many configurations give shoppers the kind of choice typically reserved for full-size trucks, but Chevy skimps on safety features. The 2021 Ford Ranger ventures further off the pavement this year with oversized off-road packages for the mid-size truck.
