Toyota took their great midsize truck, the Tacoma, and made a nearly all-new version for 2016. Come see the newest small truck on the market at Toyota of Southern Maryland in Lexington Park, MD, not far from Mechanicsville or the Prince Fredrick, MD areas.
The 2016 Nissan Frontier carries on as just a slight refresh of the same truck they have been making for years; it’s just no match for the newer Toyota.
Small trucks are hugely popular with fleet buyers looking for a low price and years of dependable service. Toyota’s Tacoma may cost more, nut historically it retains nearly 75% of its retail cost 3 years later, compared to 55% for the Nissan Frontier. The Tacoma also has more power from its base engine, better fuel economy, more interior space, and a tighter turning circle.
Both trucks cater to the V6 buyer with tons of options, but Toyota still cares about 4-cylinder buyers. There is no 4-cylinder Frontier truck in crew cab body style or with 4-wheel drive, only the less efficient V6. The Toyota Tacoma with 4-cylinder motor and 2-wheel drive is one of the most fuel efficient trucks you can buy, getting more than 20 mpg in normal city driving according to the EPA, and more than 25 on the highway.
No matter how you look at it, the current Nissan Frontier is little changed from the truck they introduced a decade ago. The 2016 Tacoma has been redesigned, inside, outside and under the hood. It features an all new V6 motor, and all the latest tech features are available like adaptive cruise control, frontal collision avoidance, and blind-spot and cross-traffic monitor. Nissan doesn’t offer any of the now common tech features, not even as options. The Nissan also looks exactly the same as the Frontier you could have bought in 2010, or 2005.
The fresh, Toyota Tacoma was designed to be the best midsize truck you can buy, and it succeeded. Take one for a test drive at Toyota of Southern Maryland in Lexington Park, MD today; we’re proud to serve drivers from Mechanicsville and Prince Frederick ad well as the rest of Southern Maryland.View Inventory
