2016 Toyota Tacoma vs 2016 Nissan Frontier
Over the years, the Toyota Tacoma has achieved remarkable success. It's the best selling truck in the mid-size pickup segment. It's owners are fiercely loyal. And the Tacoma retains the best resale value in the entire U.S. market. In order to stay ahead of the competition, the Tacoma has to continuously evolve, and that's certainly the case with the excellent update for the 2016 model year. It received a thorough overhaul both inside and out, boasting a retuned suspension and outstanding off-road features. A major competitor of the Tacoma, the Nissan Frontier, also received a significant upgrade this year. Take a look at this 2016 Toyota Tacoma vs 2016 Nissan Frontier comparison to see how these two midsize pickups stack up.
In terms of performance, both pickups offer robust V6 engines, with the Tacoma featuring a 3.5-liter V6 and the Frontier a 4.0-liter version. However, despite the slightly smaller V6 engine, the Tacoma delivers an impressive 278 horsepower, compared to only 261 horsepower for the Frontier.
