2018 Toyota Tacoma vs 2018 Chevy Colorado

When drivers are looking for the practical storage options of a pickup truck, but also want car-like maneuverability and handling, then a midsize truck like one of the vehicles in this 2018 Toyota Tacoma vs 2018 Chevy Colorado comparison may be perfect. Each of these vehicles is designed to give daily drivers the advantages of a pickup bed without compromising on the needs of the busy commuter or family.

The 2018 Toyota Tundra has a higher starting MSRP than its Chevy rival, but it brings many practical positives to the table. One of these is the Toyota Safety Sense™ P system, which is standard on every 2018 Tacoma from the base SR all the way up to the luxurious Limited. This suite of safety features includes lane departure warnings, automatic high beam control, Full-Speed Range Dynamic Radar Cruise Control, and the Toyota Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection. While none of these features can substitute for a driver, they can help anyone behind the wheel of the 2018 Toyota Tacoma track changing traffic conditions and pedestrian movement. In contrast, the 2018 Chevy Colorado comes standard with a rearview camera, but is not available with other advanced features until you reach upper trims.
