How do you think the new Colorado Diesel will stack up against the 2016 Toyota Tacoma?
No comparison. Went from 1986 6.2L Diesel (still have) and 2002 Duramax (loved, but too damn big for urban living) and then purchased a 2007 4WD Tacoma loaded, large V6. First trip across country we netted 11mpg. Kept it until VW perfected their TDI technology--bought a Touareg in 2011. Like a 3/4 beast of a truck, hauls like a semi and drives like a sportscar, but ---expensive German technology. That, the recall (we expect 100-110% of market for buyback), and the fact that I've been waiting for GM to make another small diesel truck since my '86 turned 300K mi...............I pick up my new Colorado today!! Tacoma was a nice truck---I did like it a lot, but the fuel economy had me ditching it.How do you think the new Colorado Diesel will stack up against the 2016 Toyota Tacoma?
Man, it is like y'all are reading my mind. This was exactly the 2 trucks i was looking at before choosing the Colorado Diesel last week.My decision making was based on 2 points. 1- Diesel engine and 2. Pricing. Toyotos are too proud and they typically won't lower their price too much. Everywhere i looked the Tacoma's where several $thous higher.There is only one small Toyota truck worth mentioning and that would be the HiLux which is available everywhere in the world except the USA. It is available with a Diesel engine that is built by Toyota. The Tacoma is built for Home Depot and Lowe's trips. It does not compare to the HiLux. The HiLux has a full box chassis and is built to last. The HiLux is a much better looking truck than the Tacoma which has a styling that is " out there". IMHO
