Toyota Tacoma vs Chevy Colorado


In need of a vehicle that can tow and haul its fair share of cargo? Beyond full-size pickups, there are midsize models that still have strong capabilities while also being more suitable for drivers near Danvers, Peabody, and Salem.

Two models that have impressive towing and payload capabilities are the 2020 Toyota Tacoma and 2020 Chevy Colorado. Looking closer at each one, our team here at Ira Toyota of Danvers found some aspects that differ between these two trucks that will have an effect on your daily driving experience. See what those are below in this Toyota Tacoma vs. Chevy Colorado comparison.

Toyota Tacoma Safety

Have a Confident Drive in Your New Truck  

Even with a larger body style like a truck, getting a midsize pickup gives you some of the same handling and feel as a smaller vehicle. You’ll have even more confidence riding around in the 2020 Toyota Tacoma with its standard suite of safety technologies.

With Toyota Safety Sense™ P, you gain the Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection that can identify what’s ahead. With Lane Departure Alert, this system steps in to keep you safely within the lines of the road. While they are available in the 2020 Colorado, none of them are standard for the base trim level.  

Relax and Get Comfortable

With either of these trucks, you gain a vehicle that is useful as a daily commuter even when you don’t need its towing ability. After all, they each have a variety of amenities that give you a comfortable ride to work, the store, or for the duration of your next road trip.

They each have available power-adjustable seats with lumbar support, which have up to a 10-way adjustment in the Tacoma and 6-way adjustment in the Colorado. You can also choose to get the available heated front seats in both trucks that you’ll appreciate when the cold hits.

No matter the weather, though, these trucks can keep the internal temperature to your liking at all times. Just set the automatic climate control system to your ideal temperature and the 2020 Chevy Colorado will keep it there throughout your commute.

The Toyota Tacoma offers more individual control over the temperature in the cabin with its available front dual zone automatic climate control system. This system lets you and your front passenger set different temperatures, so you don’t have to worry about one of you being too cold or hot.

Toyota Tacoma Bed Truck

A Look Inside the Bed of the Tacoma vs Colorado

While they each have two bed options of almost identical lengths, there are some differences in their designs. First, the bed of the 2020 Tacoma is ready to handle all the elements and any tough job since it is built out of Sheet-Molded Composite that is extremely durable.

The Toyota Tacoma also comes standard with adjustable tie-down cleats, which let you securely keep bikes or furniture in place while driving. Cargo tie-downs are only available in higher trim levels of the Chevy Colorado.

You can also get a cover for your tailgate to keep items safe and protected from harsh weather with either truck. The cover is available with the base trim level of the 2020 Tacoma. However, you’ll have to opt for a higher trim level of the 2020 Colorado if you want the security and protection of a bed cover.

Time to Pick Between the 2020 Toyota Tacoma vs Chevy Colorado
