2014 Nissan Frontier vs 2014 Toyota Tacoma


2014 Nissan Frontier

The 2014 Nissan Frontier is a small pickup truck that brings to mind an old saying “dynamite comes in small packages.” Offering killer off-road performance and all the state-of-art features you could want in a truck, the Frontier is a strong competitor in the mid-size class. The 2014 Nissan Frontier Canada price starts at $20,998 which is a more affordable base price than the 2014 Toyota Tacoma.
Coming equipped with different engine options, there is an available 2.5-litre 4 cylinder engine that offers 152 horsepower which is enough power for every day use and very light pulling. If more power is needed for towing or aggressive off-roading, Nissan delivers it with a 4.0-litre 6 cylinder engine that creates 261 horsepower. Giving credit to its size and efficient engine options, the 2014 Nissan Frontier fuel economy starts at 12.2 L/100 km city and 10.3 L/100 km highway which is very commendable for a truck with this much capabilities. Speaking of capabilities, the 2014 Frontier is able to haul up to 2,950 kg.
The 2014 Nissan Frontier interior is pleasing to the eye with easy to use controls and sophistication. There is an available crew cab body style which offers a backseat that is lacking when it comes to space and is not that comfortable offering only a very upright seating position.
When it comes to the safety of your family, you are in good hands with the 2014 Nissan Frontier because of its good safety ratings. The 2014 Frontier’s handling is said to feel similar to driving a car, but possesses abilities that are just shy of a full size truck with a price that is significantly lower.

2014 Toyota Tacoma

Another “big thing that comes in a small package” is the little yet powerful 2014 Toyota Tacoma. It is hard to believe the powerful punch offered by the Tacoma just judging by its size. Coming in a little higher than the 2014 Frontier for base, the 2014 Toyota Tacoma Canada price starts at $22,350.
The 2014 Toyota Tacoma fuel economy is slightly better than the 2014 Nissan Frontier fuel economy at 11.2 L/100 km city and 9.4 L/100 km highway. Powered with your choice of engine options, the 2014 Tacoma can come equipped with a 2.7-lirte 4-cylinder engine that creates a respectable 159 horsepower. To get the maximum capabilities from your 2014 Tacoma, you can opt for the 4.0-litre 6-cylinder engine that produces a generous 236 horsepower, while respectable is a little less than the horsepower offered by 2014 Frontier. Towing capacity is identical to the 2014 Frontier at 2,950 kg.
The 2014 Toyota Tacoma interior design features simple easy to use controls and a nice looking dash. The back seats are limited in space making a better ride for smaller children or shorter distance rides for adults but it is a little roomier than the backseat in the Frontier.
Surprisingly powerful, the 2014 Toyota Tacoma has nearly all the same capabilities of a full size truck with the advantage of not having to maneuver a big bulky truck. You also get to reap the benefits of having better gas consumption, car like agility and handling. The Tacoma seems to be a bit loud and not the fastest but boss to the off-road, and the safety ratings are good.

And The Winner Is…

To pick the winner between these two trucks that are almost equal in every way makes it a tough car comparison. Besides the Tacoma extended cab having a little less leg room, and the Frontier having a narrower body style giving maneuverability advantages, I find that these two designs are both great alternatives to the big bulky style trucks with about the same gas consumption, interior quality, power, speed and towing capacity. The Frontier is said to have a better feel for the road that comes at a slightly more affordable cost that would drive my opinion to selecting the 2014 Nissan Frontier as having the upper hand in this competition making it the winner.
