2014 Nissan Frontier vs. 2014 Toyota Tacoma Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the Nissan Frontier than the Toyota Tacoma. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Nissan Frontier and the Toyota Tacoma.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan Frontier as you will with the Toyota Tacoma, as they can travel a similar number of miles on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Nissan Frontier is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Tacoma. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Nissan Frontier and the Toyota Tacoma have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Frontier is much slimmer than the Toyota Tacoma, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Nissan Frontier takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Tacoma.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Nissan Frontier transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Tacoma.

Handling
The Nissan Frontier has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Tacoma, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to tow, the Nissan Frontier will do just as well as the Toyota Tacoma, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Nissan Frontier has a little more horsepower than the Toyota Tacoma.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit the same number of people in the Nissan Frontier as you will the Toyota Tacoma.

Warranty
The Nissan Frontier comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota Tacoma.
