The Toyota Tacoma was mildly refreshed for 2012, with a new interior and new smartphone connectivity.
With 2013's updates, the Frontier is now fully competitive with the Toyota's feature set, and it outdoes it in safety, considering the new rearview camera system and sonar sensors.
We've noted over many drives that the Toyota simply doesn't ride as well.
The Honda Ridgeline can be a bit more expensive, and it's not as flexible or useful as the four-door Frontier, although its ride and handling are noticeably better.
