2019 Toyota Tacoma vs 2019 Chevrolet Colorado near Dundalk, MD

When shopping around for a midsize truck, you've probably noticed how many options there are to choose from. We are here to help narrow down the list to two of the top competitors--the 2019 Toyota Tacoma and the 2019 Chevrolet Colorado. Toyota has reworked the Tacoma in 2019, giving the TRD Pro trim more off-roading equipment, adding two USB charge ports to every trim, and making the TRD Pro trim available with a high-mounted snorkel air intake. The Colorado doesn't have nearly the amount of changes that the Tacoma offers, although it does include a new infotainment system, more USB ports, and a high-definition rearview camera. Continue reading as we go through these two midsize trucks and figure out which one you should be driving home.

2019 Toyota Tacoma Power & Handling

Toyota offers the Tacoma with two impressive engine options. The standard engine is a 2.7-liter 4-cylinder, which can pump out up to 180 pound-feet of torque and 159 horsepower. You can get this engine with either rear-wheel drive, or four-wheel drive. No matter what, you'll be getting a six-speed automatic transmission. The other available engine is a 3.5-liter V6, which can produce 265 pound-feet of torque and 278 horsepower. Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are also available with this engine, along with the option to choose between a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission.

2019 Chevrolet Colorado Power & Handling

On the other side of things, the 2019 Colorado comes with three different engines. The base engine is a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder, which punches out 191 lb-ft of torque and 200 hp. A mid-range option is a 3.6-liter V6, which can generate 275 lb-ft of torque and 308 hp. The final engine is a turbodiesel 2.8-liter inline-4, which can produce around 369 lb-ft of torque and 186 horsepower. Two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive are both available. While the Colorado offers more powertrain options, we can't help but be persuaded by the options that the Tacoma features.
