Contact Information


Take on a midsize pickup truck that does the impossible, when you test drive the champion of the 2017 Nissan Frontier vs 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Joliet, IL, competition: the 2017 Frontier! Don’t hesitate to discover this pickup truck’s massive capabilities when you visit Thomas Nissan of Joliet today. Perfect for any job you have in store, the Frontier will never let you down with its effortless aptitude.

If you’re looking to maximize comfort, you’ll love the center stack armrest with storage that comes standard in the Frontier, while the Ridgeline leaves a wide-open space that offers no room for arm support. Since the Frontier boasts a full floor console and an optional overhead console for even more storage opportunities, you won’t have any problem finding space for all of the essentials close at hand. When you choose the Ridgeline, you’ll be disappointed by its mere partial floor console and its lack of inclusion of an overhead storage console.

The truck bed is essentially one of the most important features of a pickup truck, which is why the Frontier is designed with a 61.4-inch wide, 73.3 inch-long, and 18-inch deep bed, so you can load all of your equipment and the cargo you need to carry with you to the worksite with ease. If you settle for the Ridgeline, you’ll only find the truck bed to be measured at 60 inches wide, 64 inches long, and 16.7 inches deep, so your capabilities are severely limited. Our competition between the 2017 Nissan Frontier vs 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Joliet, IL, shows how the Frontier obliterates its rival in almost every category.

Usually, the haul you’re carrying is going to need some securing, especially when you’re about to venture onto Route 55. When you load up the Ridgeline, it only includes eight bed tie-down cleats to use, which just isn’t enough to adapt to your changing cargo and equipment each day. Opt, instead, for the Frontier’s available Utili-Track® Channel System1, which offers a series of cleats that are more than flexible enough to handle whatever you need to haul. Thanks to a variety of aluminum-alloy hooks that have the ability to slide, move, grip, and tighten along the five channels in the walls and floor, the Frontier is ready to handle your daily lugging with ease. The possibilities are endless in the Frontier, while the Ridgeline simply does not have quite the same level of adeptness.

When you’re in a hurry, a quick detour to the gas station can feel like your worst enemy. That’s why the Frontier offers an impressive 21-gallon fuel tank capacity, so you can bypass the pump more often than you stop. If you were to choose the Ridgeline, you’ll notice that its 19-gallon fuel tank capacity doesn’t offer quite as much long-lasting capabilities as the Frontier. Durability is a main priority of the Frontier, as it boasts an all-chrome front grille that gives this pickup truck an edgy attitude for the worksite. The front of the Ridgeline only includes a small chrome bar, leaving a gap in the front grille that doesn’t offer as much strength in the event of a collision.

Give Thomas Nissan of Joliet a call at 815-741-5353 to test drive the midsize pickup truck you need: the 2017 Frontier. As you can see from our comparison of the 2017 Nissan Frontier vs 2017 Honda Ridgeline in Joliet, IL, the latter just doesn’t stand up to the former’s capability. Visit us today!
