Overview (Final Score: B-)

There are people who want a pickup truck for the capabilities it offers such as towing a trailer or hauling various loads. But don’t want a full-size model as they find them hard to maneuver and they don’t want to faint whenever they go to fill up the gas tank. Is there a truck for these type of folks? Yes, and it is the midsize truck. Now for a few years, you only had the choice between the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma. This was due to other manufacturers dropping their models because of declining sales in the class.

But the past couple of years has seen a resurgence in the class thanks to GM introducing the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. These two trucks brought big improvements in terms of comfort, powertrains, and towing. Not to be outdone, Toyota introduced a redesigned version of the Tacoma to give GM’s midsize trucks a real challenge.
