2021 Nissan Frontier
2021 Toyota Tacoma
|310 HP||Horsepower||278 HP|
|281 lb.-ft.||Torque||265 lb.-ft.|
When it comes to engine horsepower and torque, the 2021 Nissan Frontier is the more efficient of the two trucks. The 3.8L V6 engine with 310 HP and 281 lb.-ft. of torque is standard on every Frontier, providing drivers the same power no matter which trim they pick. The Tacoma's base engine isn't quite as powerful as the Frontier's, and its optional V6 engine comes close. Still, it can't surpass the Frontier's power, making the Frontier the clear winner.
The maximum towing capacity varies based on the model, but both offer comparable capabilities, with the Frontier topping out at 6,720 pounds and the Tacoma going up to 6,800 pounds. While Tacoma has a lower MSRP than the Frontier, the Nissan pickup truck has a clear value for money with the plethora of available features.
These pickup trucks include several popular technologies, including Siri Eyes Free voice commands, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, overhead console storage, and more. But Nissan stands out from the crowd by including features like a 50/50 split back seat, illuminated glove box, illuminated pickup luggage box, radio data system, and 4-wheel disc brakes along with the standard ones.
