2018 Nissan Frontier vs. Toyota Tacoma

Thank you for choosing Sheridan Nissan as you research your mid-sized truck options. We offer a wide selection of 2018 Nissan Frontiers and invite you to stop by to learn more.

If you compare the Frontier with the 2018 Toyota Tacoma, you’ll see they have various similarities, but the Frontier comes out on top (and at a more affordable price tag). Go see Joe today to take a Frontier out for a spin.


With NissanConnect®, keep in touch with your social circle while you’re on the go. NissanConnect® Mobile Apps* lets you stay up-to-date with your favorite apps, like Facebook, Twitter and Pandora. You can also connect with the available Nissan Navigation System1 to get turn-by-turn directions displayed on the 5.8” color touch screen. Getting to your next destination is easier than ever.

Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ helps you when you need it. If you need to quickly apply the brakes, the Anti-lock brake system (ABS)  will help you keep control of the steering wheel while braking. Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD) can sense if there is more weight in the car and sends the rear wheels more braking power. When the road gets snowy, wet and/or icy, the Traction Control System (TCS) sends less power to the wheels to help maintain control in the inclement weather. Furthermore, if the road conditions cause you to go off course, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) can sense this and apply the brakes to help you get back on track.

You will not find the convenience of NissanConnect® or Nissan Intelligent Mobility™ in the 2018 Tacoma.

The 2018 Frontier delivers efficient power. With two engine options, we encourage you to visit Sheridan Nissan to take a test drive to decide what is the right amount of power for you. Choose between a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine, that delivers 152 hp, or a 4.0L V6 engine that delivers 261 hp. You may also choose between a 6-speed manual transmission and an automatic transmission with a manual shift mode. The Tacoma offers similar power, but since the Frontier’s starting price is much lower than the Tacoma, choosing the Frontier would make more sense.

Space and Comfort

Passengers in the Frontier can choose their own temperature setting with Dual Zone Climate Control. Additionally, it offers more space than the 2018 Tacoma to guarantee a comfortable ride. Passengers in the rear can enjoy 38.3 inches of headroom, as compared to 34.9 inches in the Toyota truck. There is an overall passenger volume of 87.7 cubic feet, and any extra luggage can be secured in the bed of the truck with 5 mounted cargo rails.

Now that you’ve compared the two, go see Joe at Sheridan Nissan to take the Frontier for a test drive.
