Chevrolet Philippines could very well benefit from Ford Philippines' inability to bring in the 3.2-liter Ford Ranger this year. Chevy distributor, the Covenant Car Company, is †looking to introduce in the Philippines the 2.5- and 2.8-liter variants of the much-awaited Colorado pickup truck.
According to our source from Chevrolet Philippines, both variants of the Colorado may arrive in either June or July.
On paper, the two variants of the Colorado are evenly matched with the two variants of the Ranger, give or take a few horsepower and Newton meters of twist.
The 2.5-liter Colorado, for example, put outs 150hp and 350Nm of torque while the 2.2-liter Ranger produces 148hp and 375Nm of twist.
Meanwhile, the 2.8-liter Colorado has an output of 180hp and 470Nm of toque while the 3.2-liter Ranger churns out 197hp and 470Nm of torque.
