While the Toyota Tacoma may seem evenly matched in terms of options and equipment, we'd choose the Frontier every time for its better safety ratings, ride comfort, and similar truck-like abilities.
The Honda Ridgeline will be replaced soon, but offers more car-like driving dynamics.
However, it's less usable as a truck.
Chevrolet's new Colorado and GMC's new Canyon may be the new best options in the segment, thanks to a robust and high-tech feature set, as well as the option of a diesel engine.
