2024 Chevrolet Colorado & 2024 Toyota Tacoma Comparison

2024 Chevrolet Colorado Vs. 2024 Toyota Tacoma

The Chevrolet Colorado and Toyota Tacoma are both the top midsize pickup trucks available in the market, offering outstanding performance with their highly capable engine configurations and other dynamic features. While shopping for one, the other often crosses the mind of modern pickup truck lovers. This is why the experts at Budds’ Chevrolet Buick GMC have compared the 2024 Colorado and 2024 Tacoma side-by-side, helping you find the best among both. Take a look!

Engine and Towing Capabilities

The Chevrolet Colorado is available in two engine configurations — 2.7-litre Turbo and Turbomax. When you choose the Turbomax engine, you get 310 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque, which is much more than what you get with the Toyota Tacoma’s 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine (278 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque). Moreover, you can tow up to 3,492 kg (7,700 lb) with the Colorado. On the other hand, the maximum towing capacity you get with the 2024 Tacoma is 2,948 kg (6,500 lb). The one plus point the Tacoma has in its powertrain system is the availability of a hybrid powertrain option, offering you great power combined with a greener and more efficient performance.

Off-Road Capabilities

If you’re a fan of off-roading, you’ll be thrilled with the Chevy Colorado. It features a ZR2 trim level, designed specifically for off-road enthusiasts. For even more off-road prowess, you can enhance your Colorado with the Bison package, a collaboration with American Expedition vehicles. The Toyota Tacoma, while not offering a dedicated off-roader trim, does provide the option to customize with the TRD Pro and Trailhunter packages. These packages include exciting features such as:

Colorado ZR2 Bison:

  • Heavy-duty AEV front and rear bumpers
  • AEV 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels
  • 35-inch OD MT tires – the largest in midsize pickup truck segment
  • 5-inch factory-installed lift and wider chassis

Tacoma TRD Pro:

  • TRD Pro Aluminum Front Skid Plate
  • 33-inch 265/70 R18 Goodyear Territory RT Tire
  • ARB Steel Rear Bumper with Recovery Hooks
  • High-Clearance Front Bumper

Tacoma Trailhunter:

  • Old Man Emu 2.5-in. Forged Monotube Position-Sensitive Shocks
  • Standard Bed Sport Bar
  • Trailhunter HSS Front Skid Plate
  • 18-inch Trailhunter Alloy Wheels

Available Technologies

On the 2024 Chevy Colorado, you get a standard 11-inch touchscreen, bigger than the standard 8.0-inch screen in the 2024 Tacoma. Moreover, Google’s built-in connectivity on the Colorado’s display makes driving more intuitive, assisted, entertaining and convenient. Besides that, in the Colorado, you get underbody cameras, a trailering app, a wireless charging pad, and more advanced features to make your rides more equipped and comfortable. You may also find similar technologies on the Toyota Tacoma, but they may not be standard on all trim options.


Compared to the 2024 Toyota Tacoma, the Chevrolet Colorado has been freshly redesigned to be more advanced as a next-gen model. It promises a combination of efficiency, performance and luxury with its well-thought-out features. Moreover, Colorado is also performance-focused, meaning it can tow more and perform exceptionally well in almost all types of terrain. The Tacoma is less performance-focused than the Colorado but can be used to take on light-duty towing tasks. The Tacoma has long-standing Toyota trustworthiness, but, if you want an option that’s consistently better than the Tacoma and gives similar dependable reliability, we highly recommend the 2024 Chevrolet Colorado.
