With the Colorado now on sale, its only direct competition comes from within the building: the GMC Canyon is nearly an identical twin, has slightly higher payload and towing ratings, and to us, looks a little sharper from the front.
Then, there are the two grizzled veterans of the mid-size truck segment, the Toyota Tacoma and the Nissan Frontier.
The Tacoma's truly outdated now, with a cramped cabin and a less rigid body structure than the Nissan.
The Frontier offers better cab space and a more comfortable interior than the Tacoma, and we prefer its V-6 engine to the Tacoma's too, though neither have refinement or ride quality in their corner.
