The 2022 Ford Maverick surprises car buyers out there with its powertrain choices. Its stylish cabin is a must-see, plus its fuel-efficient engines are a must experience too.

The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado knows how to impress by combining potent engine choices with composed handling too. Does this mean it is better than the Ford? Let us see about that after this review.

Design & Style

The 2022 Ford Maverick has a SuperCrew body that measures 121.1 inches long on the wheelbase and 199.7 inches in total length. It has a width of 72.6 inches and a height of 68.7 inches. With bold and attractive interior styling, it easily catches the attention of car buyers out there. All the elements are in their right places, and while some may find components underwhelming, there is beauty in their placements that make them standout. It can sit up to five passengers comfortably in its well-trimmed space.

The 2022 edition for the Chevrolet Colorado has a 74.3-inch width and a height of 70.4 inches. It chose to use hard plastics to complement its styling, and it is quite obvious that it invested on cheaper materials, thus adding to your dismay.

Technology & Safety

Using the 2022 Maverick's infotainment system with an eight-inch touch screen is no hassle at all. The ride exudes functionalities that modern users will truly appreciate. It has six speakers, a WiFi hot spot and two USB ports. Safety wise, it is equipped with forward collision warning, automatic high-beam headlights, pedestrian detection, rearview camera, and forward automatic emergency braking, from the base trim up.

The 2022 Chevrolet Colorado is equipped with six speakers. This one has a seven-inch touch screen to complement functions of its infotainment configuration. It misses out on some standards that the maverick already offers, counting Wi-Fi hot spot. For driver aids, it only has the rearview camera and Teen Driver feature as part of the standard list.


The 2022 Ford Maverick has a base gas and electric combination that allows it to yield 191 horsepower. That of the 2022 Colorado hits 200 horsepower. Fuel-efficiency wise, the Maverick scores 23 mpg for city driving and 30 mpg for highway driving. That is much higher than the rating of the Colorado at 19 mpg for city driving and 25 mpg for highway driving.

The Bottom Line

The comparison made above brings us back to a rivalry that deserves a careful look before making the final judgment. It is apparent that the Ford wins the battle simply because it has been flawlessly styled, and carries reliable technologies that you want to have for your trip. It also has that endearing engine performance that can be backed up by great fuel efficiency scores. The 2022 Ford Maverick is indeed a must-try.
