Just because you want a used pickup truck doesn’t mean you have to go all out on a vehicle that dominates the road. There are plenty of used midsize trucks that pack a punch and give their counterparts a run for their money. Let’s take a look at three midsize trucks you may want to consider as you shop around for a used vehicle to suit your needs.
The 2015 Chevrolet Colorado was redesigned to better compete with the Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier. It has a fuel-efficient powertrain system and an enhanced, quieter interior to the delight of drivers who want more bang for their buck. Its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine comes standard, as well as its rearview camera for driving convenience. It also has up to 6,700 pounds of towing capacity. This means it can be a more versatile asset on the job site if you need the extra pull.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma comes standard with a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that provides up to 159 horsepower to pack a punch. It also has perks, such as an integrated backup camera, a tire pressure monitor system, cruise control, and projector-beam headlights. Its anti-lock brake system, brake assist, and smart stop technology also offers drivers peace of mind. For easy loading, the Tacoma has a tailgate that opens smoothly and can be locked when it’s in the upright position when holding cargo.
The 2014 Nissan Frontier has a strong engine, which comes in a 2.5-liter 152 horsepower model or 4.0-liter 261 horsepower model to meet drivers’ needs. Both options work seamlessly with a five-speed automatic transmission for a smooth ride. Drivers can also opt for four-wheel drive with this vehicle to give them ultimate control over the elements.
