Tacoma vs. Chevy Colorado

  • Going Off-Road
    Only the Toyota Tacoma has a trim in its extensive lineup that is specifically designed for hardcore off-road adventures. The TRD Off-Road has crawl and terrain settings that the driver can control. Comparatively, the Chevy Colorado doesn't have any trims that are available with these fun features. Sure, they have a trim they claim has some off-road ability, but, for real trail-rated joy, only the TRD Off-Road has the ruggedness of off-road traction control.

  • Seating & Cab Styles 
    If you need to carry a lot of people with you in your travels, the Toyota Tacoma would be the better choice. The Tacoma has three cab style options, including a six-seat CrewMax, a five-seat Double Cab, and a four-seat Access Cab. The Chevy truck, on the other hand, only has two cab options and the maximum number of people it can seat is only five.

  • Base Model Equipment
    While both trucks offer an affordable, bare-bones starting base trim, only the Tacoma gives base-trim shoppers a range of choices. For example, the Chevy base trim only comes in one cab size (extended cab) and only comes equipped with one standard engine (a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with manual transmission). The Toyota Tacoma base, on the other hand, gives drivers a choice of cabs (extended or crew) and a choice of engines (either the standard 2.7-liter four-cylinder or a 3.5-liter V6, both with an automatic transmission option).

Tacoma vs. Honda Ridgeline

  • Cab Styles
    The Toyota Tacoma gives drivers a range of choices in seating and cab style. There's the CrewMax style with seating for a maximum of six people, the Access Cab with seating for four, and the Double Cab, which seats five. Comparatively, the Honda Ridgeline is only available in one cab style, a crew cab with seating for five people.

  • Engine Choices
    Drivers choosing the Toyota Tacoma get their pick of engines, including a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder or a 3.5-liter v6. The Honda Ridgeline does not give drivers a choice in engines and comes equipped only with a 3.5-liter V6 engine.

  • Off-Road Capability
    If your adventures take you off the beaten path, the Toyota Tacoma is the better choice. While both trucks are geared toward luxury and comfort, only the Tacoma offers a rugged utility and sporty abilities in addition to its creature comforts. This is especially true with the Toyota Tacoma trim TRD Off-Road, which gives drivers all-terrain tires, as well as crawl control, controllable terrain settings, and an advanced off-road traction control system. The Honda Ridgeline doesn't have any trims or equipment that even come close to this level of sportiness.

Tacoma vs. Ford F-150

  • Tech Features 
    When it comes to getting the most bang for your buck, the Toyota Tacoma is the way to go. That's because the Tacoma offers more features standard than the Ford F-150. For example, the base trim Toyota Tacoma comes with a rearview backup camera, while the Ford F-150 base trim doesn't. In fact, the Ford isn't equipped with many of the same standard features as the Toyota, meaning drivers have to move up trim levels and spend more money to get the same type of features.

  • Extended Coverage
    Any new Toyota Tacoma lease or purchase is covered by Toyota's unique "ToyotaCare" plan for two years, free of charge. ToyotaCare includes 24-hour roadside assistance for unlimited miles for two years, as well as a no-cost maintenance plan for 2 years or 25,000 miles, whichever comes first.

  • Utility Features
    Only the Toyota Tacoma gives drivers a built-in cleat tie-down system in the bed standard. Starting at the base trim, the Toyota truck comes with this special equipment to make transporting cargo easier, while the Ford truck base trim is much more bare and doesn't have this system.
