Are you searching for a versatile, highly-capable pickup truck but don’t know where to turn? We can help you out, here at your local Thomas Nissan of Joliet dealer. Let our comparison of the 2017 Nissan Frontier and 2017 Honda Ridgeline point you in the right direction.

Dependable, efficient performance is at the top of the list for pickups. Thankfully, the current frontier hits the mark. The 2017 Frontier generates a whopping 281 lb.-ft. of torque, easily navigating up hills and down I-7 with heavy loads. Unfortunately, the 2017 Ridgeline produces a mere 262 lb.-ft. of torque, resulting in less force and acceleration than the Frontier. The Frontier changes directions effectively, with a 43.4-ft. turning diameter. Meanwhile, the Ridgeline takes more time to shift course, with its 44.4-ft. turning radius. Thanks to its fuel tank capacity of 21.1 gallons, you can spend more time enjoying the Frontier and less time re-fueling at the pump. Sadly, the Ridgeline can only hold 19.5 gallons of fuel, forcing you to stop for gas more frequently.

Towing cumbersome loads and maneuvering over uneven terrain are certainly important qualities in a pickup truck. Boasting a maximum 6,710-lb. towing capacity1, the 2017 Nissan Frontier can transport hefty trailers with ease. Topping out with a 5,000-lb. towing capacity2, the 2017 Honda Ridgeline has a hard time keeping up. The Ridgeline affords 7.3 inches of ground clearance to go over rocky terrain, but falls short of the Frontier’s 8.6 inches of substantial ground clearance. Undoubtedly, the Nissan Frontier is the competent, powerful pickup you have been looking for.

A top-notch pickup truck makes hauling supplies like logs, bricks, and garden tools a simple feat. The 2017 Frontier does exactly that, with a maximum 73.3-inch cargo bed length and maximum 61.4-inch cargo bed width to take your items from one place to another. On the other hand, the 2017 Ridgeline only reaches 64 inches of cargo box length and 60 inches of cargo box width. It is plain to see that the current Frontier offers more space for your equipment than the current Ridgeline.

At the end of a long work day, being able to sit back and relax is vital. Fortunately, the Nissan Frontier has sufficient room to spread out, providing a plentiful 42.4 inches of front leg room to enjoy. With just 40.9 inches of front leg room, the Honda Ridgeline doesn’t let you stretch out as much. The Ridgeline is appointed with SiriusXM® Satellite Radio3 in its two top trims, but the Frontier does one better by equipping the same feature in all but its base trim. When it’s time to unwind, the latest Frontier supplies the comfort and technology you crave.

In our battle between the 2017 Nissan Frontier vs 2017 Honda Ridgeline near Orland Park, IL, the Frontier comes out on top. Take the Frontier for a spin as soon as today! Here at Thomas Nissan of Joliet, we will make sure all your questions are answered. We are located across the street from IHOP, near the intersection of I-7 and Theodore Street in Joliet.
