It’s very common for drivers to compare the Toyota Tacoma vs. Chevrolet Colorado. After all, both are classic body-on-frame pickup trucks with great utility features and plenty of name recognition. That said, the two trucks are not exactly equal. Although the 2019 Colorado is a strong competitor, the 2019 Tacoma provides many more safety features and better all-around performance. Get the details by comparing the Tacoma vs. Colorado in-depth with Fernelius Toyota.

Tacoma vs. Colorado: Safety Features

More and more manufacturers have added advanced driver assistance features to the models in their lineup, but many pickup trucks have lagged behind the industry trend. Not so for the 2019 Toyota Tacoma, which includes Toyota Safety Sense™ P in every trim.

  • With this package, you’ll benefit from a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection and automatic braking, a Lane Departure Alert with a Sway Warning System, Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and Automatic High Beams.
  • The only comparable feature available with the Colorado is a forward collision warning, and this optional feature doesn’t even include automatic braking!
  • What’s more, the Tacoma is available with a rear cross-path warning system and wide-angle radar–both of which can come in very handy on the job site or the campsite. The Colorado doesn’t offer either technology

Tacoma vs. Colorado: Performance and Utility

Most drivers prioritize towing power in their pickup trucks, but if that’s all you’re paying attention to in this comparison, you’ll miss out on all of the Tacoma advantages. Yes, the Colorado can tow up to 7,700 pounds, while the Tacoma can only handle around 6,800.

However, when you consider everything else that the Toyota is bringing to the roads near Onaway, you’ll quickly see why it’s a smarter buy:

  • With wider front and rear tracks, the Tacoma is significantly more stable than the Colorado, even when you’re towing a heavy load.
  • The Tacoma is able to take corners more tightly than the Colorado, no matter what kind of bed you select. This makes it more maneuverable in all sorts of conditions.
  • Although the precise difference will vary based on the exact trims being compared, the Tacoma tends to offer more ground clearance than its rival.
  • The new Tacoma also offers off-road focused trims, like the Tacoma TRD Off-Road and the Tacoma TRD Pro, which offer impressive features that you won’t find on the Colorado, including Terrain Select and Crawl Control.
