Can the Nissan Frontier rival the 2016 Toyota Tacoma? Let’s find out.
You can carry a lot in a 2016 Toyota Tacoma, but what you don’t want is to have to carry a lot of cash for gas. That’s why you’ll be thrilled to learn the Tacoma delivers terrific mileage for little money. According to the EPA, the Tacoma gets an estimated 21 miles per gallon* city, 25 highway*. It beats the Nissan Frontier, which only earns an EPA-estimated 19 city/23 highway mpg*. Better fuel economy, better styling, and a better value means the Tacoma is the right midsize pickup for you.
The 2016 Toyota Tacoma also gives you better engine choices than the Nissan Frontier. With the Tacoma, you can select from either a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine with 159 horsepower, or the new 3.5L direc-injected V6, which provides more horsepower for those heavy loads. Plus you can choose from either a 6-speed automatic or 6-speed manual transmission, depending on the engine. So what about the Nissan Frontier? Well, they also have two powertrain choices, but they pale in comparison. The Frontier comes with either a 2.5L 4-cylinder with 152 horsepower (smaller than the Tacoma) or a 4.0L V6, which doesn’t match the Tacoma’s estimated V6 MPG. Plus the Frontier is paired with either a 5- or 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic (again, less than the Tacoma.) Head to head, the Tacoma beats the Frontier.
So far, we’ve seen the Toyota Tacoma is more powerful and has better mileage. And when it comes to standard features, the Tacoma wins again. The Toyota Tacoma features a 6.1-inch touchscreen audio system with iPod interface, Bluetooth, and multimedia bundle. Now you can get some of this technology in a Frontier, but only as an expensive option. Plus, the Tacoma has power windows, power door locks, and air conditioning as standard features. As for the Frontier, it doesn’t come with standard air conditioning, and power windows are only available as an option.
Come see the sales pros at Thomasville Toyota and drive home happy to Bainbridge or Valdosta, GA in a Toyota Tacoma. Then give a friendly honk at any poor soul driving a Frontier. You’ll both know who made the better choice.
