2018 Toyota Tacoma vs 2018 Nissan Frontier

Truck shoppers interested in a mid-size pickup have quite a few notable options to choose from in the market today. Two such models are the 2018 Toyota Tacoma and the 2018 Nissan Frontier. At first glance, truck shoppers may favor the 2018 Frontier thanks to its much lower starting MSRP, but in this case that would be a mistake.   

Upon closer inspection, it becomes clear that the 2018 Frontier is lacking in modern amenities that drivers like to have in a new ride. It also doesn't make up for the missing creature comforts with improved performance figures. In terms of overall value, the 2018 Toyota Tacoma provides a lot more bang for the buck. Learn more about the standard and available features offered in the 2018 Tacoma below.

Standard and Available Features on the 2018 Toyota Tacoma  

The 2018 Toyota Tacoma had some pretty exciting updates for the new model year including the addition of the Toyota Safety Sense active safety bundle on all trims. The Toyota Safety Sense bundle includes a pre-collision system with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert, automatic high beams, and dynamic radar cruise control. In comparison, the 2018 Nissan Frontier just added a rearview camera, air conditioning, and cruise control as standard.  

Along with standard Toyota Safety Sense, 2018 Toyota Tacoma drivers can also expect to find features like a rearview camera, Bluetooth compatibility, in-bed cleats and tie downs, Bilstein shocks, a sunroof and many other specialty performance-focused features depending on trim level.   

While the 2018 Nissan Frontier could be the right choice for a truck shopper that's ok with a bare-bones model, the 2018 Toyota Tacoma's added amenities, ride quality, and capability is going to be the best choice long term for most truck drivers. The Serra Toyota dealership has a variety of 2018 Tacoma models currently in stock and available for test drives and purchase.
