When the Colorado goes on sale in the middle of 2014, its only direct competition will come from the Nissan Frontier and the Toyota Tacoma, two grizzled veterans of the mid-size truck segment.

The Tacoma's truly outdated now, with a cramped cabin and a less rigid body structure than the Nissan.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.
