2016 Toyota Tacoma vs Chevrolet Colorado Diesel: Some Say It’s Not Worth It

By  | 

The EPA ratings of the Chevrolet Colorado Diesel have been revealed along with those of the Toyota Tacoma.

From the ratings we know that the 2016 Toyota Tacoma will offer customers 18mpg in the city and when they take the vehicle out onto the highway it should offer them 23mpg.

If you take into account that the fuel cost is $9, 521 for every 100,000 miles you drive, while if you were driving the gas engine you would have to pay out $8, 548 for 100,000 miles.

The Chevrolet Colorado Diesel is going to save you a lot of money when it comes to filling up but it will cost you $3, 730 more to purchase it in the first place. Some people think that the extra cost isn’t going to be worth it, but what do you think?

    Depends on what you’re planning to do with the truck. The Colorado diesel will be better for pulling trailers. The Tacoma will be better off road.

    There is something to be said about having torque in a pickup truck. Everyone wants to talk about the value equation but there is one thing that no one can predict, the actual resale value of both trucks after 100k miles. Historically diesel trucks will return 80-90% of the original cost of the engine in 6-8 years. I plan on buying the Colorado Diesel because of how it will drive and tow…. As a plus it should cost less per a mile to drive after I sell it.
