TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Chevy Colorado asks the question: is not-full-size big enough? For many of us, that's a "yes." The 2015 GMC Canyon won't replace a full-size pickup in our garage, but reminds us why mid-sizers are a good alternative for drivers that covet utility over ultimate payload and towing numbers. The 2015 Nissan Frontier is one of your best bets if you don't quite need a full-size pickup, but maneuverability and functionality are high on your priority list.
