2018 Nissan Frontier vs 2018 Toyota Tacoma near Chicago, IL

2018 Nissan Frontier vs 2018 Toyota Tacoma near Chicago, ILThe vehicle pictured above is the 2018 Nissan Frontier with available features.

If you enjoy the outdoors and are looking for a pickup truck you can rely on for your future home improvement projects and endeavors, look no further than the 2018 Nissan Frontier. This pickup offers a fuel-efficient performance, spacious cabin, and modern interior technology. To make your decision easier for you, we decided to compare the Frontier with the 2018 Toyota Tacoma. After this comparison, you will see why the Frontier is superior. Visit us today at 1427 North Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL, to meet with a member of our team, and to take the Frontier out for a test drive.

The Frontier boasts a power that will make every drive a thrilling one. Equipped with a standard 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder engine, this beast generates 152 horsepower and 171 lb.-ft. of torque, and offers a 17/22 MPG city/hwy1 fuel rating. If you want more power under your right foot, then you can opt for the available 4.0-liter DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that churns out a stunning 261 horsepower and 281 lb.-ft. of torque. When you get behind the wheel of the Frontier, you will enjoy every second on the drive. The performance of the Frontier pales in comparison to the Tacoma.

We all enjoy listening to music on our long commutes, and in the 2018 Frontier, you will have a standard AM/FM/CD audio system with four speakers at your disposal. But, if you want more bass coming from your speakers, then you can opt for the available Rockford Fosgate®-powered audio system with ten speakers, including subwoofers. You will have concert quality sound on every drive down I-355, making every journey in your Frontier a memorable one. The Tacoma offers an advanced interior package that includes only six speakers, clearly inferior to the Frontier.

The Frontier is designed with a fully boxed ladder frame that defines strength in a way you have never experienced before. You can load up all of your heavy-duty equipment into the truck bed of the Frontier without denting or damaging that space, and even keep your items secured with the available Utili-track® Channel System2, which features a number of cleats and straps to secure your haul with ease. Thanks to the standard cargo bed light, you have full visibility of what you’re doing while working through the night or into the early hours of the morning. The Tacoma includes a fiber-reinforced sheet-molded composite inner bed, but it is not up to the standards of the Frontier.

When comparing the 2018 Nissan Frontier vs 2018 Toyota Tacoma near Chicago, IL, the Frontier will always come out on top. Hurry into Thomas Nissan of Joliet to see the Frontier in action, and to see all the wonderful features it boasts. We look forward to meeting you!
