See How The New Nissan Frontier Truck Stacks Up To The Competition

See How the Redesigned Nissan Frontier Takes on its Top Competition in Honolulu, HI

The Nissan Frontier recently returned to the streets complete with a rugged new look, more standard and advanced features, and an upgraded interior. With its high ground clearance, robust V6 engine, and stable handling, the Frontier is a truck that commands both the streets and the trails. However, many shoppers want more than just words and assurances of a truck's value, they want proof. Let us tell you all about the best features of the Frontier by comparing it to three well-known challengers of its class: the Chevrolet Colorado, Ford Ranger, and Toyota Tacoma.

You will find the all-new Nissan Frontier available for purchase or lease here at New City Nissan in Honolulu. Our dealership is conveniently located less than 20 miles away from Ewa Beach, HI.

Nissan Frontier vs. Toyota Tacoma

The Tacoma is a popular light-duty truck from a brand well-known for overall practicality and efficiency. However, when it comes to capability and some standard features, shoppers might prefer all the Frontier has to offer.

  • The standard V6 engine of the Frontier generates 310-horsepower, 281 pound-feet of torque, and gives this truck the ability to tow over 6,700 lbs. The Tacoma offers an available V6 engine, but comes standard with a less powerful inline four-cylinder engine. Even the available V6 of the Tacoma falls short of the Frontier, generating 278-horsepower and 265 pound-feet, with a towing capacity of up to 6,400 lbs.
  • The Frontier's engine comes paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, providing a more gradual and smoother acceleration. The standard six-speed automatic transmission of the Tacoma of a little more imprecise.
  • All Frontier trims feature an eight-inch LCD touchscreen monitor and an Easy-Fill Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TMPS) that gives you individual pressure readings of each tire through the heads-up display. The standard touchscreen of the Tacoma is a bit smaller, while a comparable TMPS is not available on entry-level trims of this truck.

Nissan Frontier vs. Chevy Colorado

Chevy is another brand which, like Ford, places emphasis on performance, style, and capability. However, Chevy trucks like the Colorado are often also lacking in important qualities, like fuel economy, standard features, and design.

  • All Nissan Frontier trims, including the cheapest one, come available with Safety Shield driver-assist features such as Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Intelligent Brake Assist, Intelligent Drier Alertness, Blind Spot Monitoring, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. These features have their own equivalents on the Colorado, but are only available on higher trim levels of this truck
  • The Frontier also comes standard with a great many other helpful features like Siri Eyes Free, steering-wheel-mounted audio/cruise controls, two first-row LCD monitors, and push button start. Most of these features come available on higher trims of the Colorado, except Siri home device compatibility, which is wholly unavailable on this light-duty truck from Chevy.
  • Despite belonging to a brand known for its capable cars, the Colorado's standard four-cylinder engine is considerably less powerful than the V6 performance of the Frontier, generating 200-horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque. Chevy does offer some more powerful engine options, but like their amenities, cost extra to be enjoyed on the Colorado.

Nissan Frontier vs. Ford Ranger

The Ford Ranger is one of many trucks from a brand that emphasizes performance and ruggedness in its vehicles. But can Ford's light-duty truck compete with the Frontier when it comes to capability and technology?

  • The Frontier features a great many standard driver-assist features to prevent accidents when driving near Scofield Barracks. Through the Safety Shield 360, the Frontier comes standard with Blind Sport Monitoring, Intelligent Driver Alertness, and Intelligent Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. These features have equivalents from Ford, but they are absent from base trim levels of the Ranger and cost extra for customers to enjoy.
  • The vast array of technological marvels on the Nissan frontier also include an eight-inch LCD touchscreen display, push button start, and smartphone/home device pairing through Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Siri Eyes Free. Most of these features cost extra to be enjoyed on the Nissan Frontier, while Siri Eyes Free is not available on this truck at all.
  • With its standard V6 engine, the Frontier generates 310-horsepower, with a maximum towing capacity of up to 6,720 lbs., perfect for bringing boats out to Waipio Reservoir in Waipahu, HI. The Ford Ranger's overall towing capacity caps at 3,500 lbs., which limits the types of trailers one can bring with them on their adventures. The engine of the Ranger also falls short, generating 270-horsepower.
