The midsize pickup truck segment, which has been stagnant for a long time, is in the midst of a resurgence. In fact, consumers are buying in and sales in the segment are getting better and better. Despite the growth of the segment, however, there are only a handful of options available to consumers.
The Nissan Frontier is one of them, and over time it has become a benchmark in the segment. The Frontier is sold worldwide and has long established an impressive reputation for reliability and durability. The Frontier will simply never let you down.
That's what makes Nissan's mid-size pickup stand out in its segment against rivals like the Toyota Tacoma and the Chevrolet Colorado. Plus, the Frontier really does offer a lot when it comes to price and performance.
The Frontier is about $8,000 less than the Tacoma
The Toyota Tacoma starts at $31,525 while the 2018 Nissan Frontier starts at $23,998. The Chevrolet Colorado, meanwhile, starts at $24,755. In other words, the Frontier is the most affordable midsize truck in its segment even though it comes standard with satellite radio as well as a rearview camera and air conditioning.
Like the Tacoma, it can be equipped with a powerful V6, but a 152-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine is standard. This engine is a good match for the Tacoma's 159-horsepower 2.7-liter engine. To begin with, the small difference in power on the road is not noticeable, and then you have to remember that there is a difference of nearly $8,000 between the two for a 7 horsepower difference.
The Frontier's maximum towing capacity is 6,710 pounds while the Tacoma offers 6,400 pounds. The Colorado offers about the same with its gas engines.
The 2018 Nissan Frontier offers the same or better equipment level and performance than its two main rivals, but it does so at a much more affordable price. For a rugged mid-size pickup that can take a lot, it's hard to beat the Frontier.
