2018 Nissan Frontier vs 2018 Toyota Tacoma

Do you love the look and feel of driving a pickup truck but don't need its power and towing capabilities for heavy-duty work? Well, then don't waste your money on features you're not going to use! You can find a more compact pickup truck that's just as fun to drive that will shave thousands of dollars off your price. Additionally, smaller pickups also have much better fuel economies due to the lower weight of their build and less engine stress, saving you even more money on gas. We're talking about the 2018 Nissan Frontier.

Alongside the 2018 Nissan Frontier, the only other pickup truck model made to similar specifications would be that of the 2018 Toyota Tacoma. Therefore, let's see how the two compare. It's the 2018 Nissan Frontier vs the 2018 Toyota Tacoma!

Well, both of these compact pickup trucks seem very evenly matched. Both have the exact same amount of seating and the same combined fuel economy rating. The 2018 Nissan Frontier has a higher standard towing capacity, but the 2018 Toyota Tacoma has slightly more horsepower with 159 compared to the 152 horsepower of the 2018 Frontier. However, do you really think 7 additional horsepower is worth nearly $7,000 more added onto your price tag? From that point of view, the 2018 Nissan Frontier is the clear winner!
