Toyota Tacoma Safety Features

Safety Features

When you’re towing your boat for a day on the lake with your family, you want to be focused on the memories you all are making. To help you do just that, you’ll find a series of driver-assistive technologies offered on both the Tacoma and Colorado. Some of these features include:

  • Forward collision alert
  • Lane departure alert
  • Cruise control system

While there are similarities, upon closer investigation of the Toyota Tacoma vs. Chevy Colorado safety features, you’ll notice that none of these are standard on the Colorado. These safety features, and much more, are all standard thanks to the Toyota Safety Sense™ P (TSS-P) system, but will only be found with a vehicle upgrade on the Colorado.

Toyota Tacoma Interior Apple CarPlay®

Toyota Tacoma vs Chevy Colorado: Infotainment

Whether you’re making a trip to the grocery store or you’re headed across Texas for a family vacation, you’ll have plenty of ways to stay entertained from Point A to Point B with both trucks. This is true because you’ll have access to a standard 7-inch multimedia touchscreen display, as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ connectivity.

These features make it possible to play all your favorite digital features right from your phone without the need to ever pick it up. You can even stream your favorite digital media without running out of data, thanks to the standard Wi-Fi hotspot capability of the Tacoma, although this is only offered as an optional feature with the Chevy Colorado.

An additional standard technology feature you’ll get with the Tacoma that isn’t offered on the Chevy Colorado is the Amazon Alexa integration. With this you can stay connected to your Tacoma while at home, and your home while on the go. This is possible because of the Amazon Alexa skill.

At home, you can remotely start your Tacoma by speaking to your Alexa device, check fuel levels, and more. On the road, you can use your skill to enable your smart home lights or adjust your temperature before you return home.

2020 Toyota Tacoma Interior Seats

Interior Comfort & Convenience

A technology-filled cabin isn’t all you’ll get with the Toyota Tacoma or Chevy Colorado. You’ll also have several interior features that’ll enhance your commute. For example, you can choose your seats to be leather appointed, which makes for easy cleanup after a day outdoors.

You can also find that just-right position for your seat, thanks to the standard 4-way adjustable seats. Although, for easier and more comfortable seating adjustment, you can choose the available 10-way power adjust seats with the Tacoma. Comparing the power adjust settings of the Tacoma vs. Colorado, Colorado drivers won’t have nearly as much seating freedom, as you can only equip your Chevy truck with an optional 6-way power adjust.

Speaking of enhanced comfort, the climate control systems of the Toyota Tacoma vs. Chevy Colorado are very different, too. With the Colorado, you can choose the optional single-zone automatic climate control system that will hold your preferred temperature. With the Tacoma, on the other hand, you can choose the available dual zone automatic climate control system.

With this, your temperature will still hold to where it was set, but the additional climate zone means you and your front passenger can independently set and adjust your temperature settings without affecting each other’s temperatures.

Tacoma vs Colorado: Which Will You Choose?

While both the Toyota Tacoma and Chevy Colorado are competitors in terms of performance and towing capacity, once you move to the interior of these trucks it’s clear that the Tacoma is the winner. With a comprehensive, standard safety suite, enhanced infotainment, and extra comfort and convenience features, the Colorado just can’t compete.
