When there’s a tough job to do, it takes the right truck to tackle all you need to handle. The Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma have both earned the trust of drivers for their work-ready capabilities, but which one is right for your needs? Let’s compare these pickup trucks to find out.
The pickup truck market is defined by power, and the Frontier pulls ahead with its hearty V6 engine. The Frontier’s powertrain generates a brawny 310 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque. That surpasses both the Tacoma’s standard engine output as well as its more formidable V6 option, which still trails with 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.
The Frontier and Tacoma are both available with two cab configurations that determine passenger capacity. Nissan and Toyota offer four- and five-seater cab styles, with the most seating available in the Frontier Crew Cab and the Toyota Double Cab. Your taller passengers will appreciate the more generous overhead space in the Frontier, as well as the accommodating legroom, even in its back row.
There are two-bed sizes available for each truck, a 5-foot option and a 6-foot, 1-inch option. There’s more to hauling than bed space of course, and the Frontier adds versatility with more bed-mounted cargo rails than you’ll find on the Tacoma. With the Utili-Track® Channel Bed System, Nissan lets you equip the Frontier with up to five convenient cargo rails – two more than the Tacoma has to offer.
