The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

5.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2021 Chevy Colorado’s many configurations give shoppers the kind of choice typically reserved for full-size trucks, but Chevy skimps on safety features. The 2021 Ford Ranger ventures further off the pavement this year with oversized off-road packages for the mid-size truck. For off-road enthusiasts, the 2022 Toyota Tacoma’s popularity is easy to justify, especially in off-roady TRD forms.
