2016 Toyota Tundra vs. 2016 Nissan Frontier Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the extended cab will be able to stretch out a lot more with the Toyota Tundra than the Nissan Frontier. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Toyota Tundra and the Nissan Frontier.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Tundra as you will with the Nissan Frontier, as they can travel a similar number of miles on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Toyota Tundra will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Nissan Frontier, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Toyota Tundra is much higher than that of the Nissan Frontier.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Tundra is much wider than the Nissan Frontier, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Toyota Tundra, which is slightly longer than the Nissan Frontier.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Toyota Tundra transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan Frontier.

Handling
The Toyota Tundra has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Frontier, allowing you to more easily get in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to tow, the Toyota Tundra will do just as well as the Nissan Frontier, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Toyota Tundra has a little more horsepower than the Nissan Frontier.

Utility
The Toyota Tundra offers a little more seating capacity than the Nissan Frontier, making it a better choice for those who often have a crew with them.

Warranty
The Toyota Tundra comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Frontier.
