Making big decisions can be overwhelming and stressful, but making a choice is easier when the answer is clear. This is the same when deciding which new vehicle to buy. You know that you want a pickup truck – but which one? There are two popular truck models that are battling it out for the number one spot! Our new Toyota dealership in N Charlotte is comparing the 2016 Toyota Tacoma and 2016 Chevrolet Colorado. These two trucks are similar, but only one can be the best!
To decide which is the best, Toyota of N Charlotte is comparing their specifications closely. To get more specific, our car shopping experts are comparing the 2016 Toyota Tacoma 4x2 Access Cab SR5 to the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Extended Cab 2WD LT! These two trucks have quite the positive reputation, but your budget and garage space only allows for one new truck – so which one do you choose? Our car shopping experts are helping you decide!
Let’s get to the nitty gritty. You need a tough truck, and that’s why you should get behind the wheel of the 2016 Toyota Tacoma near Charlotte. It has a 3.5 liter V6 engine that makes 278 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. The Chevy Colorado has a smaller 2.5 liter four-cylinder engine that only generates 200 horsepower and 191 lb.-ft. of torque. Both trucks have impressive fuel efficiency and a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds.
Don’t forget about safety! Driving any vehicle on the road comes with its occupational hazards, so it’s important that you drive a vehicle that can keep you safe. The Toyota Tacoma near Charlotte comes standard with the Toyota Star Safety System as well as downhill assist control, active head restraints, a full-size spare tire, and parking distance sensors. It is also only our N Charlotte Toyota truck that has front knee airbags, for extra protection.
What’s one of the most important factors when purchasing a new vehicle? The price, of course! When comparing starting MSRPs, the new Toyota Tacoma is slightly more expensive with $27,895 as opposed to $26,715 for the Chevy Colorado. However, keep in mind the Toyota truck’s superior style and other great elements like Entune Audio, voice activated controls, locking tailgate, and available GoPro windshield mount.
Additionally, the Toyota Tacoma was also just redesigned and has an all-new look for 2016! It got a new grille, new fender appearance, optional LED lighting, tailgate stamp and more. This classic truck just got an upgrade!
