For some drivers in the Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale area, a full-size truck is required to get the job done. For others, though, the growing viability of small and midsize pickups brings plenty of performance to the table in a more practical everyday package. The 2017 Toyota Tacoma and 2017 Chevrolet Colorado are both able options in this segment, so we’ve put them side-by-side to see which one wins out. If you’re convinced by the Tacoma, then come by Toyota of North Miami today for a test drive!

Available Off-Road Capabilities

Both pickups feature genuine body-on-frame truck designs with available 4×4 capabilities and V6 engines. If you’re looking for the truck that can take you to places less traveled, though, the Tacoma has you covered better than the Colorado. While you can purchase the Colorado with a locking differential, off-road tires, and a suspension tuned for all-terrain environments, it doesn’t hold a candle to the Tacoma’s available TRD Off-Road package, which comes with Mutli-terrain Select, an electronically locking rear differential, extra skid plates, and a Crawl Control (CRAWL) feature.

Standard Features

When it comes to standard features, you can look forward to both pickups getting more than you used to expect from a truck, including standard fare like a rearview camera for backing up, full power features for convenience, and a rearview camera to help you maneuver your pickup. Unlike the Chevy Colorado, though, the Toyota Tacoma also brings you standard tie-down clamps for utility, Bluetooth for easy and safe calling, and a GoPro Camera mount so you can document your adventures.

Max Payload

Both vehicles feature sure-footed four-cylinder base engines, capable V6 available engines, and the choice of rear-wheel drive (4×2) and four-wheel drive (4×4). When it comes to carrying the most stuff in your truck bed, tough, the Tacoma has the edge with a max payload of 1,620 pounds. The max payload on the Chevy Colorado falls just short at 1,580 pounds.
