2016 Chevrolet Colorado vs Competition
IN ANY COMPETITION BETWEEN THE 2016 CHEVROLET COLORADO, 2016 GMC CANYON, AND 2016 NISSAN FRONTIER, THERE IS A CLEAR WINNER…
The clear winner is the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado. Boasting multiple best-in-class capabilities, powerful engine options, including a turbo diesel, and a starting MSRP of only $20,100, it simply beats the 2016 Nissan Frontier in terms of ability and the identically-equipped 2016 GMC Canyon, which starts at $20,955, in terms of pricing.
BEST-IN-CLASS TOWING, BEST-IN-CLASS MPG, AND BEST-IN-CLASS DIESEL POWER DRIVE THE 2016 CHEVY COLORADO OVER THE 2016 NISSAN FRONTIER
Before beginning an in-depth competitor comparison involving the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado, 2016 GMC Canyon, and 2016 Nissan Frontier, it’s essential to state, clearly, what the capabilities are on the 2016 Colorado trims for sale at Ray Chevrolet in Fox Lake, IL. Unlike the 2016 Frontier, the 2016 Colorado is offered with a powerful diesel selection, in this case a Duramax® 2.8L Turbo Diesel. Able to generate 181 horsepower and best-in-class 369 lb-ft of torque, the Duramax® 2.8L Turbo Diesel also allows the 2016 Colorado to tow a best-in-class 7,700 lbs. while even reaching a best-in-class 22 city, 31 highway diesel MPG fuel economy. As such, it offers a pound-for-pound overall work capability that easily beats the most powerful 2016 Frontier trims. Even when it comes to the gas engines that are available on the 2016 Colorado, the standard 2.5L 4-cylinder’s 200 hp, 191 lb-ft of torque, and best-in-class 20/27 gas mpg fuel economy best the 152 hp, 171 lb-ft of torque, and 19/23 fuel economy that define the Frontier’s equally-sized 2.5L standard motor. When the next step up in engine sizes is considered, an available 3.6L V6 on the 2016 Colorado turns out an impressive 305 hp while enabling towing of up to 7,000 lbs. and a 18/26 fuel economy… all numbers that easily eclipse the 261 hp, max 6,500 lbs. towing, and 16/22 MPG fuel economy found on the Frontier’s next available engine, a 4.0L V6.
Simply put, when it comes to a competitor comparison that involves raw ability, efficiency, and utility, the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado clearly buries the 2016 Nissan Frontier.
NEED A MOBILE OFFICE ON THE JOB SITE? THE 2016 COLORADO HAS WIFI® HOTSPOT CAPABILITY… THE 2016 FRONTIER DOESN’T
Since many contractors and professionals need to use their vehicles as mobile offices where they can access blueprints, documents, and other data on site or on the go, it’s important to note that even the standard 2016 Chevrolet Colorado features a built-in OnStar® suite that, once activated, provides 4G LTE Internet Wi-Fi® hotspot capability. The equivalent ability simply isn’t offered on the standard 2016 Nissan Frontier trim.
IN A COMPETITION BETWEEN THE 2016 CHEVROLET COLORADO AND 2016 GMC TERRAIN, WHY GO WITH THE MORE EXPENSIVE CLONE?
An in-depth competitor comparison between the 2016 Chevrolet Colorado and 2016 GMC Canyon is just as simple to decide as the matchup with the 2016 Nissan Frontier. This is because the 2016 Colorado and 2016 Canyon, at a mechanical level, are the same vehicle. Both utilize the same platform/architecture, are available with the same engines, and even have the same capabilities when equal trims are considered equipped. For all intensive purposes, they are the same truck, just with different body styling and, with the more expensive 2016 Canyon trims, different interior accents. If someone is looking for a work truck that’s for sale in Fox Lake, IL, however, why would they care about badging when the less expensive vehicle has the same abilities as its more costly sibling?
