Drivers from Marshall to Tyler often visit Peters CCJDRF wondering whether to choose the Chevy Colorado vs. Toyota Tacoma. Both vehicles are popular and capable, but the Chevy Colorado specs offer the performance and price that blow the Tacoma away!
In our truck comparison, we found that the Chevy Colorado specs were much more efficient overall. The Colorado runs on a standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine with 200 hp, generating up to 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The Toyota Tacoma’s standard V6 only manages 18 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. Plus, the Colorado also offers its own V6 option with a best-in-class 308 hp and a 2.8L turbo-diesel with best-in-class towing power and torque! No matter what you need, the Chevy Colorado can provide.
Not only will you get better savings at the gas pump, but the Chevy Colorado is also significantly less expensive than the Toyota Tacoma. The starting MSRP for the Tacoma is $25,550 for the base model. You can get a brand new Chevy Colorado and save over $5,000! The Chevy Colorado’s starting MSRP is a mere $20,500.
