Which Midsize Pickup is Right for You?

While these two vehicles share many of the same features, what ultimately makes the 2018 Frontier superior to the 2018 Tacoma is that it has small additions that the Tacoma cannot give you for a significantly lower MSRP* than the Toyota Tacoma Let's take a closer look at why this is the case.  In terms of interior comfort, the standard feature of underseat air ducts in the Nissan Frontier will make a huge difference in air circulation in the vehicle. Air conditioning is a major factor in having a comfortable cabin, and the Frontier is definitely the better vehicle when it comes to air conditioning.  Also in terms of interior comfort, the back seats in the Nissan Frontier are way more comfortable in the 2018 Frontier than in the 2018 Tacoma. When you have passengers in your car, you want to make sure that they are comfortable, and many adults would have a hard time fitting in the back of the Tacoma.  Finally, the variable intermittent wipers in the 2018 Nissan Frontier, which are not available in the Toyota Tacoma, are a great feature for both convenience and safety. Visibility can be completely compromised if you do not have proper windshield wipers, and the Frontier provides them.  *Disclaimer: All prices are Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).
