Among mid-size pickups, two that have consistently found themselves ranked with the most popular in the segment: the Nissan Frontier and the Toyota Tacoma. Both are extremely well-built pickups, and are rightly trusted by consumers looking for a high-quality truck that is both capable and functional. But how do they stack up against each other? (For the purposes of judging the 2014 Nissan Frontier vs. the 2014 Toyota Tacoma, we compared the mid-level trim for each, the comparably priced and similarly equipped Frontier SV V6 and the Tacoma PreRunner V6.)
The first thing to jump off the page is that, despite the similar powertrains, the 2014 Nissan Frontier packs a much greater punch than its Toyota counterpart. Twenty-five extra horsepower and fifteen added pound-feet of torque is really nothing to sneeze at. When you factor in that the 2014 Nissan Frontier still manages to eke out better fuel economy despite its greater power, it’s clear that the Nissan Frontier holds a significant performance edge over the Tacoma.
The separation becomes greater when you look at the standard interior features in the 2014 Nissan Frontier SV. Frontier drivers are rewarded with SiriusXM radio--the Tacoma has only AM/FM stereo--and boasts a 50/50 rear folding seat, while the Tacoma’s is stationary.
Both inside and out, the 2014 Nissan Frontier is the clear choice over the 2014 Toyota Tacoma.
Although the 2014 Nissan Frontier certainly cuts an imposing figure visually, the proof is really in the pudding. Great performance, to go with its exceptional interior features, make the 2014 Nissan Frontier a vehicle that really can’t be ignored during the search for a mid-size pickup. Available in a number of trims and engine styles, the 2014 Nissan Frontier has an adaptability that is hard to argue with: whether you are searching for a heavy-duty work truck, a capable off-roader, or a daily commuter with attitude, there is a version of the 2014 Nissan Frontier for you.
Although the midsize pickup segment certainly holds many fine options, the versatility and pure strength of the 2014 Nissan Frontier make it a hard model to ignore. To learn more about this great vehicle or to schedule your test drive, contact the sales team at Robbins Nissan today.
