Another Prior Tacoma Owner
By mc929 on


2011 Nissan Frontier SL 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I owned a 2008 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 TRD Crew Cab and feel that the Frontier overall is notably better than the Tacoma.
My Tacoma was a six speed manual and the best fuel economy I observed was eighteen.
I have consistently got better than nineteen out of the Frontier and have gotten as good as twenty one mpg around town.
I think the ride quality on the Nissan is vastly better and the cabin is notably quieter than the Tacoma.
I think the power from the Nissan is better as well.
However, turning radius as well as ground clearance and approach and departure angles I believe were much better on the Tacoma.
Build quality on the Frontier also seems to be top notch.
Reliability a non issue.
