2019 Chevrolet Colorado vs. Its Competition

If you’re interested in the Colorado, it’s worth test driving the Chevy’s sibling, the GMC Canyon.

Most trims are nearly identical, but the Canyon is more luxury-oriented with its top-tier Denali trim and other options.

The Toyota Tacoma has long been the segment favorite but feels a step behind the GM twins in its current iteration.

Nissan’s Frontier is ancient but represents a serious value play compared to its rivals.

The crossover-like Honda Ridgeline is easily the most comfortable of the class and should be on your list despite its unibody construction.

Finally, a loaded Colorado encroaches well into full-size pickup territory, so check out a similarly-priced Chevrolet Silverado if your Colorado of choice reaches close to $40,000.
