Toyota Tacoma vs Nissan Frontier

Being two of the only mid-sized trucks out on the market, these two are in close competition. While they share a lot of similarities, there are a handful of reasons why the 2016 Toyota Tacoma 4x4 Double Cab TRD Sport near Charlotte is better than the 2016 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab SL 4x4.
