Vehicle Comparisons:
Nissan Frontier vs Toyota Tacoma

When it comes to pickup trucks, drivers in Pawtucket, East Providence, and Cranston tend to have a strong level of brand loyalty, including Nissan and Toyota. And two popular options within these brands are the Tacoma and Frontier. But which one is right for you?

2018 Nissan Frontier in Glacier WhiteTo help answer that question, we here at Stateline Nissan created this Nissan Frontier vs. Toyota Tacoma vehicle comparison. We’ll go over the similarities and differences between each truck, so that you can make an informed decision. Read all about them below, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Truck Engine Comparison

Both the Frontier and the Tacoma come with two engines, and both offer 4-cylinder and V6 options. With pickup trucks, the more important statistic in your engine is the torque it provides, as this will have a direct effect on your four-wheeling and towing capacity. In this area, the Tacoma comes out on top. Its V6 engine gets 281 lb-ft of torque, as compared to the 265 lb-ft of torque offered in the Tacoma’s V6 engine.

Frontier vs Tacoma: Towing Capacity

Speaking of towing capacity, this is another area where the Frontier truly shines. The maximum towing capacity of the Toyota Tacoma, when properly equipped, reaches only 6,400 pounds. While this might seem like a solid number, compare it to the maximum towing capacity for the Frontier. Properly outfitted with the V6 engine, the Frontier boasts a maximum towing capacity of 6,710 pounds. It’ll pull a bigger trailer and have a much easier time hauling a friend out of snow, mud, or a ditch.

Truck Cab Dimensions

Not everyone considers passenger space when they choose a pickup truck, but it can be important, especially if you’re using your pickup as a family vehicle. Even in the case of an emergency, having room for an extra passenger can make all the difference. Once again, the Frontier wins out with 88 cubic feet of space for passengers, whereas the Tacoma offers just 57.5 cubic feet.
