The Toyota Tacoma comes standard with a amply-powered yet efficient four-cylinder engine. A larger V6 engine is also available for those interested in increased capacity or a punchier ride. Similarly, the Chevrolet Colorado is also available with multiple engines, ranging in power from a turbo-diesel to a V6.

Capability and Space

The Toyota Tacoma and Chevrolet Colorado both make tough tasks here in the Salisbury area seem like light work, but which one reigns supreme? It depends on your needs. The Chevrolet Colorado may tow more, but either truck is happy to accommodate jet-skis, dirt bikes, ATVs, or small trailers. Plus, the Toyota Tacoma is the ideal choice for hauling heavy loads, thanks to its higher hauling capacity. It also is available in more off-road-oriented trims, including TRD Sport, TRD Off-Road, and TRD Pro.

Safety Features

Safety is a top priority for Toyota, which is why every new Tacoma sold now offers not only a standard backup camera but also the Toyota Safety Sense suite of technologies. With Toyota Safety Sense-P (or TSS-P for short), your Tacoma comes equipped with:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Pedestrian Detection

Though the Chevrolet Colorado offers a backup camera and Teen Driver technology, it can't keep up with what the Tacoma offers where safety is concerned.


If the latest technology is important to you, then you'll love that the new Toyota Tacoma boasts a standard 6.1-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Bluetooth streaming, Entune integration, USB connectivity, and more. The Chevrolet Colorado, though equipped with Bluetooth and USB connectivity, only offers a standard 4.2-inch touchscreen multimedia system, making the Tacoma a better value where technology is concerned.
