Test drove both Tacoma and Frontier and decided on Frontier due to more comfortable ride, nicer interior, availability (Need to wait 3 months for Tacoma), price (about $4000 more for comparably equipped Tacoma), and more power. The Frontier has a quieter cabin and the bed is traditional steel with a sprayed on liner which is not slippery like the Tacoma's plastic liner. The utilitrac is very strong and durable and seems like it can hold a heavy load. Had six mountain bikes and six people on board and it didn't break a sweat driving uphills in the mountains. Very strong and smooth V6. Test drive both and see for yourself. All other trucks weren't even considered.
Smooth and powerful V6. Comfy interior. Traditional steel bed with spray on liner. Utilitrac.
