So you want to upgrade to a new truck, huh? It’s an exciting time shopping for a new truck, but it can get stressful when you realize how many options are out there. You don’t have to get overwhelmed though, because comparison shopping makes it easier! You can narrow down your options by closely comparing competitors and determining which is the better truck. For example, our Orlando Toyota dealership has compared the 2016 Toyota Tacoma 4×4 Double Cab Limited to the 2016 Chevy Colorado Crew Cab 4WD Z71 Short Box, and determined that the new Toyota truck is the top dog! Why is that? Because it excels in fuel economy, convenience features, safety features and more!
The Toyota Tacoma crushes the Chevy Colorado!
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma in Orlando has been completely redesigned! It’s been given an all-new look with a new front grille and front fenders. It also has an all-new locking tailgate with available tonneau cover. Under the hood is a completely redesigned engine that has all truck drivers’ jaws dropping!
When it comes to these two mid-size trucks, they share a lot of commonalities. They have similar engine sizes and power specifications, as well as prices. The new Toyota Tacoma has a 3.5 liter V6 engine that can generate up to 278 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s right on the heels of the Chevy Colorado that has a 3.6 liter V6 engine, that makes up to 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma in Orlando 4×4 Double Cab Limited has an MSRP of $38,720. The 2016 Chevy Colorado Crew Cab 4WD Z71 Short Box starts at $36,730. As far as price goes, the Toyota truck has a bit of a higher price than the Chevy Colorado. However, that’s because it has so many more integrated features than the Chevy!
A benefit to our new Toyota truck having a slightly smaller and less powerful engine, is the increased fuel economy. This Orlando Toyota truck gets better fuel economy in the city than the Chevy truck. You’ll make fewer stops at the gas pump while cruising the city streets! Cruising will also be easier with the slew of convenience features in the Orlando Toyota like:
- Universal garage door opener
- CD and MP3 player
- Power moonroof
- Navigational system
- Smart key system
- Separate climate controls
- Seven speakers
Stay safe with an Orlando Toyota truck!
Like we mentioned before, our new Toyota truck also has superior safety features. While both of these new trucks have features like electronic traction control and hill start assist control, only the new Toyota Tacoma in Orlando has:
- Toyota Star Safety System
- Parking distance sensors
- Brake assist system
- Front knee airbags
- Active head restraints
