If you're not sure whether you want to buy the Toyota Tacoma or the Chevy Colorado -let us help you. We want drivers to get behind the wheel of a vehicle they will not only love, but also feel safe in and be able to drive for years to come. For this reason, we suggest getting into the 2016 Toyota Tacoma in Orlando. The Toyota and Chevy trucks share a lot of similarities in performance and price, but our new Orlando Toyota truck trumps the Chevy Colorado in convenience and safety.


Under the hood of the Orlando Toyota Tacoma is a 3.5 liter V6 engine that cranks out 278 horsepower and 265 lb.-ft. of torque. This is slightly smaller than the Chevy Colorado's 3.6 liter V6 engine that generates up to 305 horsepower and 269 lb.-ft. of torque. However, an advantage to a smaller engine is better fuel efficiency! Our Orlando Toyota truck gets better fuel economy in the city than the Chevy Colorado.

Both trucks have four doors for easy access to the five-person seating. The Toyota Tacoma comes out on top with capability, thanks to its standard split folding bench seat. It's also wider, has more hip and shoulder room, and is lighter than its Chevy competitor - making it more comfortable and more fuel-efficient.


Our Orlando Toyota truck and the Chevy Colorado sit very close in price range. When using comparably equipped models, the 2016 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Double Cab Limited is $38,720 and the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado Crew Cab 4WD Z71 Short Box is $36,730. Don't forget!
