The Nissan Frontier competes with a growing class of mid-sizers that are all newer than it.
The Frontier’s long been lapped by others in comfort, quality, power, and fuel economy, but it’s much less expensive than the rest.
The Toyota Tacoma is the standard-bearer in the class, but it’s not very ergonomic or comfortable.
The related Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon are more comfortable, with an available turbodiesel, but can be pricey.
The Ford Ranger is new and boasts a turbo-4 and 10-speed automatic for better fuel economy.
The Honda Ridgeline is the logical pick, even if it doesn’t have much flavor.
