Discover How the Tacoma Compares to its Vienna Rival

If you've been looking for a pickup truck lately, you've probably noticed the sheer abundance of options offered in this highly-competitive segment. The Toyota Tacoma stands out in this crowd, thanks to an enticing combination of style, capability, and performance. Want more proof? Check out or handy comparison below, where we put the Tacoma up against the Chevrolet Colorado in a head-to-head competition.



If you're looking for a truck, you're looking for power and capability. The Tacoma features a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque, topping the Colorado's 2.5-liter inline-4 and its output of 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. If you regularly tow items around Fairfax or Chantilly, that power advantage shows up when you consider that the Tacoma enjoys a maximum towing capacity advantage of 2,900 pounds over the Colorado's top number.


Both the Tacoma and the Colorado come equipped with standard rearview camera and touchscreen audio systems, but the Tacoma is the only one of the two to include an integrated GoPro® mount on the windshield that allows you to record your travels (GoPro camera not included). Also, the Tacoma offers available Qi-compatible wireless device charging, which isn't even an available option for the Colorado.


The Tacoma comes with standard Start Safety System™, which is an exclusive feature that can't be found in the Colorado. This suite of advanced safety technologies includes Anti-lock Brake System (ABS), Brake Assist, Electronic Brake-force Distribution, Traction Control, Vehicle Stability Control, and Smart Stop Technology. The Tacoma also comes with standard Tire Pressure Monitor System, as well as the no-cost Toyota Care maintenance plan and 24-hour roadside assistance for your first two years of ownership.

While the Colorado offers traction control and electronic stability control standard, you'll have to pay extra to add the OnStar® program to that truck.
