The Toyota Tacoma has long been the leader of the pack, but the GM twins have overtaken the Taco in recent years thanks to superior quality.
The Nissan Frontier has been largely unchanged since 2005 but is a lot cheaper and can be had at a significant discount.
For those who want more comfort, the crossover-based Honda Ridgeline is slightly less capable, but much more livable.
Top-tier Canyon buyers would be smart to cross-shop a larger Sierra too if their parking options allow.
