2018 Toyota Tacoma vs Chevy Colorado Comparison in Boone, NC

  • When choosing the TRD Off-Road edition of the Tacoma, you'll be better set up for adventures off the beaten path compared to a similarly equipped Colorado. The Tacoma offers a multi-terrain select system with five different driving modes, as well as crawl control and hill start assist.
  • In those off-road editions, the Tacoma offers passenger space for four, while the Colorado only accommodates the driver and one additional passenger.
  • When comparing starting packages of both trucks, the Tacoma is more affordable than the Colorado.
  • The Tacoma comes standard with the Toyota Safety Sense P suite of driver assistance features that includes lane departure warning, automatic high beam control, pre-collision with pedestrian detection and dynamic cruise control. The only standard driver assistance feature with the new Colorado is a rearview camera.


2018 Toyota Tacoma vs Ram 1500 Comparison in Boone, NC

  • With the starting four-cylinder engine in the base level of the Tacoma, you'll earn pretty decent fuel economy for a truck, while the Ram 1500 starts off with a V-6 that burns far more gas.
  • When comparing similar setups - based on bed length and cab configurations - the Tacoma is pretty much always going to run more affordable than the Ram 1500, and oftentimes by considerable margins.
  • The standard Toyota Safety Sense P suite in the Tacoma better equips you for safety on the road, with features like pre-collision warning with pedestrian detection and lane departure control. The Ram 1500 doesn't offer a standard safety suite like this.
  • With the Tacoma, your standard corrosion / rust thru warranty is for five years and unlimited miles. For the Ram 1500, the same agreement is also for five years, but caps out at 100,000 miles. If you're going to put a lot of miles onto your truck right out the gate, the Tacoma is the way to go in order to get the longest protection agreement for rusting and corrosion.
