Compare the Toyota Tacoma and Chevy Colorado near Waterford, MI

Ready to find yourself a new truck that's rugged and refined, but also efficient and well-appointed? The new Toyota Tacoma has what you want from your next truck. It's not too big, but it isn't too small, either. It provides plenty of trims so whether you want something basic or more luxurious, there's a Tacoma you're bound to love. It offers a couple engine choices so whether you value efficiency or power more, it's got you covered.

Toyota Tacoma vs. the Competition

The Toyota Tacoma is by all accounts a well-rounded and well-respected new pickup for all your adventures in and around Detroit. But how does it compare to the Chevrolet Colorado? Find out more below!

Performance & Efficiency

The new Chevrolet Colorado comes standard with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that offers a pretty good blend of power and fuel efficiency. But the new Toyota Tacoma provides a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that's also efficient. That's not all, though. Both trucks provide additional engine options. The Tacoma, for instance, boasts an available 3.5-liter V6 engine, while the Chevy Colorado offers an available 3.6-liter V6 engine.



What do you need a new truck for? If you're searching for a new small or midsize pickup that can haul the most, you're probably going to want the new Toyota Tacoma, which offers a max payload higher than the Chevy Colorado. If you need the most towing, the Colorado does tow more than the Tacoma. Still, if you want a well-rounded pickup, the Tacoma comes out on top - especially if you factor its off-road capability into the mix. The Tacoma lineup offers several specialized TRD trims designed to provide superior 4x4 capability.

Safety & Security

The Toyota Safety Sense suite of active safety features comes standard in every new Tacoma. That means every new Tacoma boasts a pre-collision system, pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, and lane departure warning. The same can't be said for the Chevrolet Colorado, though it does provide a standard backup camera and Teen Driver technology. Still, for the safest and most technologically-advanced new midsize truck, your best bet is the Toyota Tacoma.


Technology & Infotainment

If you want a truck that can help you whistle while you work or play, chances are you'll love the new Toyota Tacoma. With its standard touchscreen infotainment system, Entune phone integration, Siri Eyes Free technology, and six-speaker sound system, the Tacoma helps you stay connected on-the-go, wherever the road takes you near Farmington, Bloomfield, MI or beyond. The Chevy Colorado, too, offers a touchscreen infotainment system with standard smartphone integration. Like the Tacoma, it also offers upgraded infotainment with premium audio, navigation, wireless device charging, and more.
