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 GMC Canyon looks good and performs well, but falters on safety. The 2021 Toyota Tacoma wears its age like a badge of honor.
