New 2022 Nissan Frontier Tampa FL | Maus Nissan of North Tampa

2022 Nissan Frontier vs 2022 Toyota Tacoma

If you’re a mid-size pickup truck driver, you want a powerful piece of equipment that can tow a full-size camper while carrying a full load in the bed and your family inside. As you’re driving the North Tampa area, you may have had your eye on two mid-size pickups in particular-the 2022 Nissan Frontier and the 2022 Toyota Tacoma.

Both of these trucks are highly popular for their dependability and durability, and you may be trying to decide which one is the right one for you as your next vehicle. Well, the car pros here at Maus Nissan North Tampa come in. Today, we’ve put together this mini-guide and comparison to help make your search for your next midsize pickup truck as seamless and stress-free as possible.


The fact is, when Nissan built the all-new 2022 Frontier, they didn’t cut any corners-especially under the hood. The 3.8-liter V-6 engine is built to tackle just about any obstacle while also being comfortable to drive for your daily commute. With 310-horsepower and available part-time four-wheel drive, you can even venture off-road on your weekends around Tampa if you want!

While the Tacoma tries, it comes up short with the redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier. Under the hood of the Tacoma, you’ll find a 3.5-liter V-6 engine with 278-horsepower. Now, if you’re looking for an off-roading trail slayer, then the Tacoma has some incredible electronic assistance driving features. Otherwise, it doesn’t quite pack the power that the Frontier does.


You’re not going to buy a mid-size pickup truck and not look at the towing capabilities, and neither are we! So, hooking up your RV or boat trailer to a 2022 Nissan Frontier that has a towing capacity of 6,720 pounds with a maximum payload of 1,610 pounds is quick and easy. And with an EPA estimated 21 mpg, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

The Toyota Tacoma has a towing capacity of 6,800 pounds with a maximum payload of 1,685 pounds with an EPA estimated 20 mpg.

Interior & Features

The all-new 2022 Nissan Frontier has a large 8- or 9-inch center touchscreen that comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. And Nissan doesn’t slack on their technology inside. The ProPilot Assist is designed for ultimate driver safety and comes standard in the Frontier.

Inside the Tacoma, you’ll find either a 7- or 8-inch infotainment system with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. While the interface is not as easy to navigate as the Nissan Frontier, the options and features are relatively similar. However, the only driver safety assistance features that come standard on the Tacoma are traffic-adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. If you want any other safety and driver assistance features, you’ll have to pay for an upgrade.
