Both some of the most stylish off-roading machines in their class, the 2018 Chevrolet Colorado and Toyota Tacoma offer a lot for their drivers, including various cab sizes that offer seating for up to five and different bed sizes that give owners an opportunity for more hauling area. For those looking for the most bed space, though, the Colorado is the clear winner, with its upper-level ZR2 trim offering an extended cab and long bed configuration compared to the Tacoma’s shorter bed in its TRD Pro trim. Both trucks have powerhouses for engines, even in their base models. The Tacoma’s standard 4-cylinder is perfect for everyday driving, while its optional 3.5-liter V6 with significantly more horsepower and torque. The Colorado comes equipped with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine for its base model, but owners can choose from a more rugged 3.6-liter V6 or a 4-cylinder diesel engine. Neither truck lacks in features, as they both include driver assistance safety technology, an infotainment center, and wireless integration, but the Tacoma’s full array of standard safety assistance for drivers is impressive. Even the base model gets adaptive cruise control, blind spot monitoring, and pedestrian detection, all of which aren’t even optional on the Colorado.
