2022 Chevrolet Colorado vs. Its Competition

2022 Chevrolet Colorado Trail Boss
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

GM’s twins haven’t kept pace with hybrid, electric, and crossover-based pickups.

The GMC Canyon appeals with its handsome lines and boxy edges, while a new, more rugged redesign of the 2021 Honda Ridgeline tries to distance itself from the related Honda Pilot.

The redesigned 2022 Frontier takes an overdue step forward, with good standard features but limited configurations.

The aging Tacoma might be timeless with how good it performs at everything it intends to do, and the outdated Ranger might face competition in Ford’s family from the smaller Maverick hybrid.
