There haven’t been any signs of GM, Nissan and Honda being able to catch up with sales of Toyota among the mid-sized segment. The Toyota Tacoma has just about been able to hold onto the segment but the lead is only very small. This may have been down to the fact that there hasn’t been much by way of competition on the market.
One thing that stands out about the Chevrolet Colorado is the 2.8 litre Duramax engine. The price tag of it is $31, 700, for this you can get hold of the Honda Ridgeline.
The sales figures of the Nissan Frontier improved by 45% this year and this is a wonder as the vehicle does need a big overhaul. The Toyota Tacoma however doubled the sales of the Frontier recently.
Toyota wants to boost the capacity of the Toyota Tacoma but they are going to be facing some very stiff competition. The Jeep Wrangler is a vehicle that is very popular right now and it might be entering into the midsized market. The Ranger has to go up against the Tacoma in the way that it had to go up against the Toyota Hilux globally.
The two new entries have been known for being difficult when it comes to going off the road. However they may give the Toyota Tacoma stiff competition in the same way that peers in the US market could not.
