2016 Toyota Tacoma vs 2016 Chevy Colorado
When it comes to midsize pickup trucks, the Toyota Tacoma has always been considered the gold standard. In fact, half of the midsize pickup trucks in the United States are Tacomas, which is incredible. This truck is entering its 25th anniversary model year, which is very exciting. Toyota is celebrating the milestone by completely redesigning the truck this year. The new 2016 Toyota Tacoma has only been on the market for a short time, and it has already been receiving rave reviews from customers. We’re very confident that the new redesigned 2016 Toyota Tacoma will take the popularity of this iconic midsize pickup truck to all-new heights.
The midsize pickup truck segment was stagnant for several years. However, it has began to recover in recent years. As a result, the competition within the category is really starting to increase as new models come out. One of the newest vehicles in the segment is Chevy’s Colorado, which was recently resurrected by the brand. We truly believe that the Tacoma is better than the Colorado, and we are going to proving by conducting a comparison review. We have done research on both the 2016 Toyota Tacoma and 2016 Chevy Colorado and have matched them up against each other.
2016 Toyota Tacoma: 25th Anniversary
One of the ways that the new 2016 Toyota Tacoma is able to outshine the 2016 Chevy Colorado is with its bold styling. Toyota completely redesigned the styling of the Tacoma for the 25th anniversary model year, and it looks absolutely stunning. The Tacoma features new styling cues such as: daytime LED running lights, race-inspired design, updated grille and much more. We aren’t saying that the Chevy Colorado is a bad looking truck, but we are saying that the Tacoma is the better looking vehicle.
Another aspect of the new 2016 Toyota Tacoma that we love is its long list of standard features. The Toyota Tacoma comes standard with features such as: a rearview camera, a basic version of Entune connectivity, an automatic limited-slip differential, eight airbags, a lockable tailgate, adjustable tie-down cleats in the bed, 16-inch wheels, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel. On the other hand, the new 2016 Chevy Colorado does not even come close to matching the long list of standard features that are available on the Tacoma.
