Nissan Frontier vs Toyota Tacoma
When you’re in the market for your next pickup, the pros at Montgomeryville Nissan have your back. With so many different models on the streets of Lansdale and Doylestown, how do you know which one is right for you? We have taken two of the most popular ones and compared them to help you decide. In our Nissan Frontier vs. Toyota Tacoma comparison, which one will come out on top? Let’s dive in and find out.
Frontier vs Tacoma—Towing Capability
One of the most important (and fun) aspects of owning a truck is the ability to tow. And with the Frontier and Tacoma, you’ll be able to reach new heights when it comes to hauling. But when we compare standard towing capability, the models differ slightly. When the Nissan Frontier is standardly equipped, you can tow up to 3,760 pounds*. This is the perfect amount of power for heading to the lake with a couple of jet skis or a lightweight travel trailer.
On the other hand, the Toyota Tacoma can only tow up to 3,500 pounds when standardly equipped, a full 260 pounds less than the Nissan model. This might leave you wanting more when you’re loading up.
Frontier vs Tacoma—Dimensions
Inside and out, one of these pickups proves to be a touch more versatile.
If you’re looking to take on the unknown in an off-roading adventure, the Frontier might be the way to go. With a ground clearance of 10.1 inches, you’ll be able to tackle more obstacles than in the Tacoma, which offers 9.4 inches of ground clearance.
In the cabin, the Nissan Frontier also presents those in the backseat with plenty of space to stretch out. This includes 36.6 inches of headroom, 25.4 inches of legroom, and a whopping 55 inches of hip room. Learn more about the dimensions of the Frontier and more from Nissan’s website!
Inside the Tacoma, though spacious, those seated in the rear may feel a little more cramped. The headroom in the back measures in at 34.9 inches with a legroom of 24.6 inches and 51.7 inches of hip room.
Nissan Frontier vs Toyota Tacoma—Truck Beds
If you’re looking for a perfect truck, you’re probably looking to carry some serious stuff in the back. And while these two models possess impressive truck beds, there are some things to take note of.
The Frontier has a truck bed with a maximum width of 61.4 inches. It also is available with five bed-mounted rails to give you a flexible and secure cargo system.
The Tacoma’s bed width is much smaller at 41.5 inches. It also only is available with three bed-mounted cargo rails. Though sure to keep your belongings in the back secure, it offers less than the Nissan Frontier.
Nissan Frontier vs Toyota Tacoma—Verdict
There’s no doubt that these two trucks have what it takes to make your commutes in the Lansdale and Doylestown areas robust. But with a better standard towing capacity, more impressive dimensions, and a versatile cargo system, Montgomeryville Nissan thinks the Frontier is the way to go.
