Under the hood of the Jeep Wrangler is the 3.6-liter Pentastar V6, which is rated at 285 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The Colorado, on the other hand, is powered by an all-new 3.6-liter LGZ V6, and it makes 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. The Chevy may have a bit more power, but at approximately 4,700 pounds it outweighs the 4,100-pound Jeep.
Another notable difference would be the transmissions, as the Colorado utilizes a new 8-speed automatic while the Wrangler is equipped with a 5-speed automatic.
In order to rule out driver-skill as being the determining factor, the guys swap keys and complete two separate runs. It might seem like a senseless comparison, but we’re sure many potential buyers want to know if they can overtake the competition should they ever want to do so.
At the very least, it’s a great way to entertain yourself for three-and-a-half minutes, so go ahead and click play.
