The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Nissan Frontier clearly isn't as large or capable as full-size trucks, but it offers enough toughness for personal use along with an especially good feature list. The 2008 Toyota Tacoma covers the basics, at a price that’s lower than full-size trucks.
