2022 Nissan Frontier vs. Its Competition

Brian Wong Brian Wong West Coast Editor

The mid-size pickup truck segment teems with new and redesigned models, with several more on the way, including electric models.

The refreshed 2021 Honda Ridgeline precedes the Frontier with a rugged new look but the same comfy interior and soft on-road manners, but with all the small truck capability.

The bestselling Toyota Tacoma soldiers on as the tried-and-true pickup that’ll run forever, even as its standard equipment pales to competitors.

The TRD Pro and Jeep Gladiator will square off against the Pro-X models for off-road agility, where this segment shines brightest.

The Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon siblings prepare for a redesign that will hopefully upgrade their safety ratings.

The Ford Ranger does just fine, without standing out or slinking in any way, until the Raptor model arrives.

Quick Specs
The redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier is thoroughly modernized with big improvements in ride quality and technology.
The 2021 Chevy Colorado’s many configurations give shoppers the kind of choice typically reserved for full-size trucks, but Chevy skimps on safety features.
The 2021 Ford Ranger ventures further off the pavement this year with oversized off-road packages for the mid-size truck.
The 2021 Honda Ridgeline is the just-right pickup most users really need.
The 2021 Jeep Gladiator, for better or worse, is a Wrangler with a bed. Nothing else will satisfy those who seek exactly that, but competitors are more comfortable and more affordable.
The 2021 Toyota Tacoma wears its age like a badge of honor.
