The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Nissan Frontier is your best bet when looking to downsize from a full-size pickup, balancing maneuverability and size with utility and comfort. The 2015 Chevy Colorado asks the question: is not-full-size big enough? For many of us, that's a "yes."
