2016 Toyota Tacoma Takes on Colorado: Let’s Get The Facts Straight

By  | 

When the 2016 Toyota Tacoma came out the vehicle was a huge hit. It made its arrival at the Detroit Auto Show and it has been among the leaders when it comes to power and fuel economy. But people should get the facts straight and now we can thanks to the fact that the official numbers have now been released. This means that we can now compare the Toyota Tacoma and the Chevrolet Camaro better.

If you check the facts you will see that the Toyota Tacoma falls short of the Chevrolet Camaro when it comes to power and fuel economy. So with this in mind the Colorado is the winner.

The Chevrolet Colorado wins thanks to the fact that it has the 2.5 litre engine and this offers four cylinders and 200 horses. The Toyota Tacoma has the 2.7 litre four cylinder engine and this is a bit underwhelming. The highlight is the 3.5 litre V6 Atkinson and this gives 278 horses.

The V6 version of the Toyota Tacoma is good but it will not match up the 3.6 litre V6 that is offered in the Chevrolet Colorado.

If you go for the entry level version of the Chevrolet Colorado and the Toyota Tacoma it is about fuel economy and power and the Colorado comes out ahead.
