Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater head- and legroom, passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Ford F-150 than in the Nissan Frontier. The Ford F-150 will be a favorite with tall drivers and their passengers since it has much greater head- and legroom than the Nissan Frontier.

Convenience
With the Ford F-150 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Nissan Frontier, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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). Clearly, the Nissan Frontier is a better financial choice over the Ford F-150, when considering MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Nissan Frontier carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford F-150.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan Frontier is much slimmer than the Ford F-150, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Nissan Frontier, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford F-150.

Drivetrain
The Nissan Frontier offers much less torque than the Ford F-150, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Nissan Frontier has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Ford F-150, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Nissan Frontier is clearly the choice over the Ford F-150 for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan Frontier is clearly outclassed by the Ford F-150.

Utility
The Nissan Frontier has less seating than the Ford F-150, making the Ford F-150 the better choice if you often have passengers. The Ford F-150 has a lot more cargo capacity for hauling lumber or gardening supplies than the Nissan Frontier.

Warranty
The Nissan Frontier comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Ford F-150.
