2017 Chevrolet Colorado vs 2017 Toyota Tacoma
The Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is well-known for its power, toughness, ruggedness and dependability. But it’s also a rather large full-size pickup truck. And that size is sometimes far more than you need. But just because you want a smaller, more manageable truck doesn’t mean you want to sacrifice that power, toughness, ruggedness and dependability. In that case, you’re going to want to go with the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado, which we have right here at Jack Burford Chevy near Lexington, Kentucky.
The Chevy Colorado, a mid-size pickup truck that still has all the power you need, made its triumphant return to the Chevrolet model lineup back in 2015.

To show you what we mean, we decided to put the 2017 Chevrolet Colorado up against the 2017 Toyota Tacoma in a head-to-head comparison.
