I had the 2016 Tacoma ext. cab, then was surprisingly blessed with twins, so all of a sudden I needed a crew cab. Since I had just bought a new truck not too long ago, I test drove all the 2018 crew cab mid size trucks... at the end of the day, the value for the Frontier was undeniable. But, now after driving it for 2 months, I've found it to be superior to the Tacoma in many ways: much more solid ride (I think this has to do with the fully boxed frame) , quicker pick up and torque- much better acceleration; much more utilitarian... just feels like a "Truck ".... the Tacoma had better interior design and stereo, but I don't really care about that... but, the Tacoma did get a solid 2-3 mpg better.... nothing wrong with the Tacoma, I just truly enjoy the feel of the Frontier better....
