Drivers who’ve been searching for a mid-size pickup almost always end up pitting the 2019 Toyota Tacoma vs. Chevrolet Colorado, and it’s not hard to see why! However, although both trucks are versatile and capable, they’re far from equals. Compare the safety and utility features of both models to find out why we think the Tacoma is a smarter option for drivers who need to be able to do it all.

Safety Features: 2019 Tacoma vs. Colorado

Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) is standard on every 2019 Toyota Tacoma, and that gives this pickup a major advantage. When you choose the Toyota pickup over its competitor from Chevrolet, you’ll be protected against the unexpected, no matter where your daily adventures take you.

  • With every Tacoma, you’ll receive a Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection, a Lane Departure Alert with a Sway Warning System, Automatic High Beams, and Dynamic Radar Cruise Control. Of these, the only comparable feature available in the Chevy Colorado is a Forward Collision Alert, which does not include automatic braking.
  • Both the new Tacoma and the Chevy Colorado come standard with a backup camera, and each is available with rear parking assist, a feature that detects obstacles in your path when you’re moving at low speeds. However, only the Tacoma offers a cross-path warning system with wide-angle radar.
  • Trying to drive when you’re tired or distracted is a recipe for disaster. In this comparison, only the Toyota Tacoma is available with a driver alert monitor that monitors your attention and lets you know when it’s time to take a break.

When you’re deciding whether the Colorado or Tacoma is right for you, consider how the confidence provided by these safety features will impact your mood when you’re off on an adventure.

Performance and Utility: Toyota or Chevrolet?

Chevrolet has a good reputation for performance, and the Colorado earns some points for offering diesel engine options to drivers from Carrollton and Grapevine. However, the Tacoma does offer a number of advantages that give it a clear edge:

  • Engines: Although the Colorado starts out with a stronger engine than the Toyota Tacoma, most Tacoma models offer a 3.5 DOHC V6 that produces 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. That makes it significantly more powerful than the baseline Colorado engine, a 2.5 DOHC 4-cylinder that generates just 200 hp and 191 lb-ft of torque.
  • Handling: A wider track makes the Toyota Tacoma more stable than its competitor from Chevrolet. Its front track is .9 inches wider than that of the Colorado, and its rear track is 1.1 inches wider. The Tacoma also corners more tightly than the Colorado, no matter which bed size you select.
  • Off-Roading: The 2019 Toyota Tacoma comes standard with stabilizer bars, and offers more ground clearance than the Chevrolet Colorado. The magnitude of this difference will vary depending on the trims and upgrades you select, but there’s no denying that the Tacoma is better equipped for the occasional offroad adventure, especially if you select the new TRD Pro trim level.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Off-Roading

The 2019 Chevrolet Colorado offers strong towing capability for a midsize truck, with a maximum capacity of 7,700 pounds. However, the Toyota Tacoma isn’t far behind with a maximum of 6,800 pounds. For most jobs, both trucks offer more than enough power to get you where you need to go. If you’re on the hunt for a vehicle that can go the distance, Toyota has a reputation for reliability that speaks for itself.
