Chevy Colorado ZR2 vs Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro

Which truck is faster: a Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro or a Chevy Colorado ZR2? These trucks are the top off-roaders of the midsize class, and they are closely matched. Most of these trucks will likely spend a majority of their time on pavement, so we wondered – which will get to 60 MPH quicker.

We are kicking off the 2018 Gold Hitch Awards competition with the off-road challenge, and a whole week of drag races.

The Tacoma TRD Pro is powered by a 3.5L dual-injected V6 that is good for 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The Colorado ZR2 is nearly 300 lbs heavier than the the Tacoma TRD Pro, but it produces a lot more power. The 3.6L V6 is rated at 308 hp and 275 lb-ft of torque. The wider gear range of the 8-speed automatic transmission should also provide a quicker off-the-line getaway.

Check out the video for the results, and please stay tuned throughout the week for six more truck drag races.
