    I'm thinking of selling my M3 to get a truck and a dirt bike. I'm going to buy this brand new (If I do at all). Any one know which one is better? Everything I read said that the Tacoma is smaller, cheaper, and slower.

    Or a older model?

    read much?

    To the OP: Both are great trucks, but I've heard the frontier is better with road manners, and the taco is better off road. That's not to say that either is particularly bad on/off road, but that's the general consensus.

    The Frontier, all the way! If we were talking <2004, then it'd be taco. But for 2005+, the Frontier is king.

    The only benefit to the taco is more aftermarket crap. Otherwise, the Frontier is faster, stronger, better looking, and less expensive.

    Price out a Nismo frontier and it'll run you a few grand less than the tacoma -- and feature-for-feature it out-classes the tacoma.

    I got the Tacoma last week and LOVE it. I'm going to the snow next week and will be able to use the 4wheel drive. Also getting a dirt bike in the next few months!

    Try to remember that 4WD != invincibility. If you hit ice and you panic, you're still fucked.
