Features

While they're not as popular in more mild areas, in frigid climates many drivers find heated seats, a standard feature on the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado7, quite necessary. If you want heated seats on the 2015 Toyota Tacoma4, though, you'll have to pay extra for them. Move forward, back, up, or down with the touch of a button, using the Power Adjustable Seats that come standard on the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado7. Power Adjustable Seats aren't standard on the 2015 Toyota Tacoma, so be prepared to either pay more, or use that awkward bar under the seat.

I've own Toyota, Ford and Honda trucks and this by far is best truck I have owned. It is quiet, smooth and has plenty of power.



People are always stopping me and complimenting its looks. Gary Russ Chevrolet - Cadillac gave me an outstanding deal.

This truck replaced a Nissan Frontier. I don't need a full size truck, so sadly my alma matter, Ford, was out as they killed off the Ranger 3 years ago. I have had the truck a week and like it. We drove a 700 mile trip through the mountains and averaged 23.5 mpg going 70 mph with 4 people and bed full. The Nissan on the same trip averaged 19.3 mpg. Truck is very quiet and comfortable. The fit and finish inside and out are first rate. I have not used the 4X4 or towed yet, but with 7000 lbs capacity it should do well. Overall, after a week and 1000 miles, I would recommend it. I was going to wait on the diesel, but after comparing potential costs vs. return, the gas V-6 was the better buy.
