Whether you're looking for a pickup that offers superior towing or off-road performance, you'll want to have your eye on the new 2021 Nissan Frontier. Thanks to its standard 3.8-liter V6 engine and impressive towing capacity, the 2021 Frontier from Nissan is a bold and rugged new truck for sale that mid-size pickup shoppers won't want to miss!

You can find Nissan's new Frontier trucks for sale by visiting our local new and used auto dealership in Covington, LA. Eddie Tourelle's Northpark Nissan is here for local motorists with a top-notch sales team that will go over all the ways the Frontier tops the competition.

Advantages Of The Frontier Over The Tacoma

When we take a look at the new 2021 Nissan Frontier and the 2021 Toyota Tacoma in a head-to-head comparison, the most glaring difference is in their performance. Nissan has recently upgraded its trusty mid-size truck with standard V6 performance. Replacing the Frontier's standard inline 4-cylinder and available 4.0-liter V6 is a newly developed 3.8-liter unit that delivers exceptional power and torque and is coupled with a next-generation 9-speed transmission.

The aging Toyota Tacoma still relies on an underpowered inline 4-cylinder engine as its standard powertrain. With just 159 hp and 180 lb-ft of torque on tap, this Tacoma engine is a far cry from Nissan's 310-hp V6 that generates 281 lb-ft of torque in the new Frontier.

When it comes to towing, the Toyota Tacoma can't keep up with the Frontier, either. With the huge disparity in engine performance comes a similarly significant difference in trailering capabilities. The Nissan truck offers over 3,000 more pounds of towing capacity than the Tacoma with its standard engine.
