Toyota Tacoma vs Chevy Colorado

The mark of a good pickup truck is what it’s able to do. How much can it tow? How much can it haul? What terrain can it handle? How can it get the job done? How can it make the adventure possible?

Those are the questions that the drivers in Mechanicsburg and Carlisle are asking themselves about the Toyota Tacoma vs. Chevrolet Colorado. Those are the questions that our Faulkner Toyota of Harrisburg team is striving to answer. Get in touch with us today if you’d like to set up your test drive!

Toyota Tacoma

Towing and Hauling: Tacoma vs Colorado

When you combine the might of Tacoma’s formidable 3.5L V6 engine and their available Tow Package, you’re looking at a pickup truck that’s capable of towing up to 6,800 pounds and carrying a payload of up to 1,440 pounds. Plus, a high-strength steel construction, an available 4-/7- pin connector, a 3-piece bumper, and a Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) feature will provide all the logical support you need.

On the other hand, when you outfit Chevy’s pickup truck with its 3.5L 4-cylinder engine, it’s only clocking in at about 3,500 pounds. However, you can boost that by upgrading to their V6 powerplant.

Off-Road Capabilities: Tacoma vs Colorado

Then you’ve got the Toyota Tacoma’s all-terrain capabilities, which will ensure that no job (nor weekend getaway) is too tough to handle. Check out this list of features and systems that will make it happen:

  • Tacoma TRD Off-Road Crawl Control (CRAWL): By automatically modulating both the throttle and the brakes across five different low-speed settings, you’ll enjoy optimal traction/handling.
  • Hill Start Assist Control (HAC): No more rolling backwards as you transfer your foot to the gas.
  • Multi-Terrain Select: Five different modes to choose from, depending on the circumstances.
  • Electronically Locking Rear Differential: Now, your rear wheels will receive engine power in equal distribution, meaning that they’ll move at the same speed, promoting traction/grip.
  • Standard Goodyear Wrangler® Tires with Tough Kevlar® Construction: Need we say more?

However, that’s not to say that the Colorado is completely at a loss when it comes time to get down and dirty. Not at all, in fact, it’s also built with a Rear Electronic Locking Differential function.

Getting the Job Done and Making the Adventure Happen

At the end of the day, that’s what the Tacoma is all about. That’s why it also comes with Toyota Safety Sense™ P, a Sheet-Molded Composite (SMC) truck-bed surface, an in-truck-bed storage compartment, a state-of-the-art deck rail system, and everything else that you need to be successful.
