Frontier vs. Tacoma: Which Compact Japanese Pickup Is Right for You?

In the battle of the pickups, performance is king. That’s why we put the Nissan Frontier and Toyota Tacoma compact pickup trucks head-to-head to see which one reigns.

The 2017 Nissan Frontier, which places poorly in our rankings of compact pickup trucks, is due for a refresh. It’s the oldest model in the segment, but it’s also one of the most affordable, and it's likely to suit your basic needs.

The Toyota Tacoma has been riding high since its major redesign last year. The pickup now combines a plush cabin with excellent driving dynamics. It was a finalist for our 2017 Best Compact Truck for the Money award.
