Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Colorado offers passengers in its extended cab about the same head- and legroom as the Toyota Tundra. The Chevrolet Colorado will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers, since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Toyota Tundra.

Convenience
With the Toyota Tundra you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Chevrolet Colorado, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Clearly, the Chevrolet Colorado is a better financial choice over the Toyota Tundra, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Colorado carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Toyota Tundra.

Dimensions
Since the Chevrolet Colorado is much slimmer than the Toyota Tundra, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Colorado takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Tundra.

Drivetrain
The Chevrolet Colorado offers much less torque than the Toyota Tundra, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Chevrolet Colorado has a similar turning radius to the Toyota Tundra, so both should maneuver just as easily in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Toyota Tundra is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Colorado for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Colorado has a little less horsepower than the Toyota Tundra.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Chevrolet Colorado as you will the Toyota Tundra.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Colorado comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Tundra.
