The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is one of the most popular models in the mid-size pickup segment. Rivals like the Nissan Frontier try to imitate, but always fall flat.

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma Pickup

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma had received a host of changes for the new model year that help it further compete with rivals like the 2016 Nissan Frontier. Toyota's popular midsize pickup truck was given some fresh, new exterior styling, a brand new V6 powertrain, upgraded interior materials and finishes, a long list of new features, a new, more capable drivetrain; and even more off-roading features in both its TRD Pro trim and its road-minded trims. Thanks to the laundry list of new features and amenities, the 2016 Tacoma shines even brighter in the midsize pickup truck segment than it did in previous model years.

Engine Performance

The 2016 Toyota Tacoma pickup comes with one of two engines to provide you with the ability to equip your vehicle in the way that best fits your driving, towing, and hauling needs. The base Toyota Tacoma comes with a 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet. of torque; the upgraded engine option is a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 278 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. The V6 engine is an Atkinson-cycle model, a first for the Tacoma lineup, that also features Variable Valve Timing-intelligent Wide and Variable Valve Timing with Intelligence technology in order to improve fuel economy across a wide number of driving situations. If you are looking for a midsize pickup truck that can tackle a wide range of different driving situations both on-road and off-road, then the 2016 Tacoma is a great option that will serve you faithfully - so you can forget about the Nissan Frontier. While the 2016 Frontier also has two engines available, the Tacoma's are more powerful. The Nissan Frontier's base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 152 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. The Nissan Frontier's V6 is a 4.0-liter model that produces 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque. The Frontier's V6 might produce a little more torque, but the Tacoma's V6 (with the available tow package) can pull harder; it's rated for a maximum towing capacity of up to 6,800 pounds while the Nissan Frontier's V6 tops out at 6,500 pounds of maximum towing capacity.

Standard Features

When compared to the 2016 Nissan Frontier, the Toyota Tacoma is much newer in terms of design and features thanks to the upgrades it got for the 2016 model year. In its 2016 model iteration, the Tacoma comes loaded with interior features like the Toyota Entune multimedia system (which features a 6.1-inch touchscreen display, six speakers, AM/FM/CD player stereo, auxiliary and USB ports with IPod connectivity, advanced voice recognition, Bluetooth, Siri Eyes Free, an integrated rearview camera, and more, depending on the trim you select), adjustable (power adjustable in some models) drivers and passenger seats with lumbar support, a leather-trimmed steering wheel with audio and Bluetooth controls, remote keyless entry (or a Smart Key system with push-button ignition; automatic transmission only), and more. The base Nissan Frontier is not available with a rearview camera (and entry-level V6 models only offer it as an option), and Bluetooth, power locks, power windows, remote entry, adjustable front seats, and a leather-trimmed steering wheel do not come standard on the base Frontier either. The 2016 Toyota Tacoma is a much better value, even in its base trim, than the Nissan Frontier. Come to Capital Toyota to see the difference that 2016 Tacoma makes!
