The Toyota Tacoma and Nissan Frontier are very evenly matched in features, but the Frontier stands taller in safety ratings and equipment, as well as offering a better ride and similar towing/hauling capacity.
Honda's Ridgeline is soon to be discontinued, but does offer better ride and handling--at a higher cost and with less flexible utility.
Chevrolet's recently announced 2015 Canyon promises to be the newest and best offering in the less-than-fullsize-pickup segment, however, with a range of gasoline and diesel engines, modern electronics, and substantial hauling and towing capabilities.
