2023 Toyota Tacoma vs 2022 Chevrolet Colorado Extended Cab

The 2023 Toyota Tacoma has better power and torque output than the Chevrolet Colorado. The cab also leads in terms of acceleration as per the 0-60 MPH mark. The brand also offers its top-notch safety features and reliability factor, which are no match to the rival.

Final Verdict

The 2023 Toyota Tacoma is an affordable access cab with a number of configurations to offer. The fuel economy of Tacoma is satisfactory as per the segment. The V6 engine compromises the mileage with the increment in power and torque. However, one can opt for the Inline 4 engine for better fuel efficiency. The powerful V6 engine offers an impressive output. The handling is swift and provides an excellent experience while off-roading. The 2023 Toyota Tacoma provides an ample amount of safety features and ensures reliability with its trustworthy brand image. As per us, the best choice would be to go with the SR5 trim which comes with new packages and attractive engine and drivetrain options.
