Compare the 2016 Toyota Tacoma

Midsize Dimensions with Full-Size Capability -- How the 2016 Toyota Tacoma outpaces the Pickup Truck Competition

Recently, the pickup truck market has been filling out with more midsize truck options. But out of all of the new players, the tried-and-true Toyota Tacoma is a fan favorite.

If you know a Tacoma driver, you're well aware of how fiercely loyal they are to their pickups. They'll hang onto their Tacoma trucks for years and years -- partly because they're so attached to them and also because of Toyota's reputation for durability, reliability and longevity. Roughly 80 percent of all Toyota vehicles sold within the past decade are still on the road today, and that's reason enough to choose the Tacoma over other midsize pickups.

But, of course, there are more selling points to the Tacoma than just its lifespan. We did some comparison shopping for our truck-driving customers, pinning the 2016 Tacoma against the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado, and we posted the results below. If you're not already a diehard Tacoma fan, we think these findings might convince you to convert.

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma versus the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado

  • On top of its bed length and body style options, the 2016 Tacoma is also offered in five distinct trim levels -- SR, SR5, TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, and Limited. The Colorado bundles all of its options into only three different models, so you may end up paying for more features and equipment that you really need.
  • The Tacoma TRD Off-Road has a cult following all its own. Frankly, it's one of the most capable all-terrain trucks on the market. The 2016 model expands on a great thing with more off-roading hardware, like a new Multi-Terrain Select system for better traction on everything from mud to rock with just the turn of a dial. It also comes equipped with an electronic limited-slip and locking rear differential as well as crawl control. The Z71, the Colorado's off-road model, doesn't offer these amenities.
  • The Tacoma offers an available Qi wireless charging station as well as standard LED brake lights and a locking glovebox, none of which the Colorado offers. These are just a couple of high-tech and security-conscious ways that the Tacoma outpaces its more sparsely equipped competitors.
