2023 Toyota Tacoma vs. Its Competition

Tacoma shoppers tend to be a loyal bunch, but those willing to test-drive the competition will find a lot to consider.

The Nissan Frontier is the freshest model around, even though it still feels like something of a throwback.

Still, we like its strong V-6 and its pricing can be reasonable.

The Ford Ranger delivers a punchy turbo-4 and comes in a huge array of trims, but its cabin would have felt outdated a decade ago.

The Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon twins lack modern safety tech, but they have a good ride and a terrific V-6 powertrain.

Finally, look to the ever-practical Honda Ridgeline unless you really need serious off-road or towing ability.
