2020 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2020 Nissan Frontier

Midsize trucks are having a bit of resurgence in the current iteration of the automotive industry. A comparison of the 2020 Toyota Tacoma vs. 2020 Nissan Frontier will provide buyers with a pretty clear picture of what exactly is going on today. The 2020 Tacoma went through a pretty extensive redesign a few years ago and the 2020 Frontier has a new look of its own for the new model year. Despite the changes made to the Toyota truck’s competitor, the 2020 Tacoma will still make a strong case for potential owners to visit the Colonial Toyota showroom today. Customers can schedule a test drive or start the pre-ordering process for the 2020 Toyota Tacoma today by calling 203-403-6890.

What does the 2020 Tacoma have to offer?

The 2020 Nissan Frontier has only been just introduced by its manufacturer. That means there is still some mystery as to what the automaker will include with the newest version of the midsize pickup truck. However, we do know everything a Colonial Toyota customer can find with the 2020 Toyota Tacoma. Owners of the 2020 Tacoma will have a smartphone-compatible infotainment system in all trim grades. Drivers and passengers will be able to easily access both the Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. It seems very likely that the 2020 Frontier will offer this capability but it’s unclear which of its trim grades will have this equipment. Additionally, the 2020 Tacoma joins a growing list of Toyota vehicles that are outfitted with a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot – a feature not available with many Nissan vehicles, for what it’s worth.  

Toyota continues to make a pair of engine options available with the 2020 Tacoma. The base powertrain is made up of a naturally aspirated 2.7-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to a six-speed automatic transmission. It will make 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque. Colonial Toyota customers can also choose a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine which offers options of a six-speed automatic or a six-speed manual transmission. The larger engine will obviously make more power, producing 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque.  

According to available information, the 2020 Nissan Frontier will use a 3.8-liter, V-6 engine that is reported to make about 310 horsepower.
