2022 Toyota Tacoma vs. Its Competition

2022 Toyota Tacoma Trail Edition
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

It may be up for a redesign and it may be light on safety tech, but the Chevy Colorado is a suave, well-executed choice with a killer off-road version.

The Ford Ranger wins the spec sheet race, though there’s something missing in its execution.

Jeep’s Gladiator drips with style and personality, at the expense of comfort and practicality.

A new Nissan Frontier is here! Finally! It’s a promising choice, though Nissan traditionally doesn’t offer as serious an off-road option as Toyota.

And unless you really plan to explore every weekend, the Honda Ridgeline probably does everything you need—with more comfort, more space inside, more flexibility, better fuel economy.

Just get a Ridgeline.

Quick Specs
For off-road enthusiasts, the 2022 Toyota Tacoma’s popularity is easy to justify, especially in off-roady TRD forms.
The redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier is thoroughly modernized with big improvements in ride quality and technology.
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.
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline is the just-right pickup most users really need.
The 2021 Jeep Gladiator, for better or worse, is a Wrangler with a bed. Nothing else will satisfy those who seek exactly that, but competitors are more comfortable and more affordable.
