2018 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2018 Nissan Frontier

Being a car buyer in Milford Connecticut can be tricky when you have to choose between the 2018 Nissan Frontier and the 2018 Toyota Tacoma. The best way to differentiate two vehicles is to compare them, in terms of style, design and technology. The below comparison will give you an idea why Toyota is a bigger brand than Nissan.

Design & Style

Both these models are for off-road tracks, and one can expect them to be craggy and sporty. If you love to go on an outdoor adventure, there’s no better choice you can make. But which one to go for? The 2018 Frontier has the best in class front seats, while the rear seats are mostly jump seats.

For the 2018 Toyota Tacoma, you would certainly appreciate the cabin design that comes with easy to use controls and great positioning. There’s no compromise with the comfort, as the cabin offers plenty of space, along with sufficient room for luggage in the trunk space.

Technology & Safety

The true worth of any vehicle is taken into consideration, with the technology and safety aspect of the same. Some of the standard features in the Nissan Frontier include a rearview camera, a 5-inch display screen, a USB port and Bluetooth. The NissanConnect infotainment system comes with smartphone app integration, voice recognition and a 5.8-inch touchscreen. Although it comes with a Siri Eyes in the base model, it does not offer Android Auto or Apple CarPlay that can be found in rivals. The model comes with rear parking sensors as well as the rearview camera, but other safety features are quite basic.

If you are looking for a better alternative in terms of technology, Toyota Tacoma has everything to win the race. It has an exceptional navigation and audio system, along with straightforward knobs. Enhanced safety features make it a great choice for anyone looking for a smooth ride.


Performance is another parameter that dictates the true value of a car. The Nissan Frontier has a 4-cylinder base engine producing up to 152 HP, and a V6 engine that can generate up to 261 HP. The former is just fine for daily driving, but V6 has stronger acceleration.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     

On the other hand, with a V6 engine and a capacity of 3.5 liters, the 2018 Toyota Tacoma can produce a superior output of 278 HP.

The Bottom Line

The Toyota Tacoma has everything it takes to impress even a shrewd buyer. The above comparison makes the statement quite clear. Even though the Nissan Frontier is a plausible choice, Toyota Tacoma is offered as a total package.
