2016 Toyota Tacoma Takes On Chevrolet Colorado But Get The Facts Straight

By  | 

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma has been popular ever since it came out and was shown off at the Detroit Auto Show. It offers superb power along with fuel economy. However let’s get the facts straight and we can now thanks to official numbers having been released. These ensure that there is fairer comparison between it and the Chevrolet Colorado.

The facts reveal that the Toyota Tacoma actually falls short of the Chevrolet Colorado when it comes to power and fuel economy. This puts the Chevrolet firmly in the lead and it is the best in class.

The award winning Chevrolet Colorado offers a four cylinder 2.5 litre engine and this gives out 200 horses. The Toyota Tacoma has the 2.7 litre engine with four cylinders but this is a bit underwhelming. The biggest highlight is the 3.5 litre V6 Atkinson engine which offers up 278 horses.

The V6 version of the Toyota Tacoma is good but it cannot match that of the Chevrolet Colorado and the V6 3.6 litre engine.

So if you stick with the facts you can see that the comparison between the Toyota Tacoma and the Chevrolet Camaro is more about a comparison of the power and fuel economy and the leader is the Colorado.
