The 2016 Nissan Frontier is a pickup truck that offers drivers a list of standard features that bolster comfort, convenience, and technology. But how does it stack up against the competition? We take a look at the standard features of the 2016 Nissan Frontier and compare it to another pickup on the road: the 2017 Honda Ridgeline. Which truck offers drivers more? Let’s find out.
More Features on the Ridgeline
The 2016 Nissan Frontier and the 2017 Honda Ridgeline are both five-passenger pickup trucks. The entry-level models of both vehicles have features such as voice-activated controls, cruise control, MP3 player, and a rearview camera. But the Ridgeline offers additional features that you won’t find on the Frontier, including:
- Rear window defroster
- Telescopic steering column
- Stereo anti-theft
- Armrest storage
- Locking bed storage
- Brake Assist
Some other features on the Ridgeline such as floor mats and a trailer hitch also come standard. Unlike the other features listed above, you can find these on the Frontier, but only as available options, which means you’ll have to shell out more money if you want them.
Ready to Tow
The Ridgeline also comes ready and completely equipped for towing. The trailer hitch mentioned above as well as tow hooks, towing stability, and towing pre-wiring are all standard equipment on the Ridgeline, even on its entry-level model.
Price and Fuel Economy
Some car shoppers might assume that because the Frontier is less equipped than the Ridgeline that it would be cheaper too. But Ridgeline RT 2WD models are priced at just $29,475 MSRP.* In comparison, the Frontier’s comparably equipped price is $35,005.
Adding even more value to the Ridgeline over the Frontier is its better fuel economy. The Ridgeline 2WD models achieve an EPA-estimated 19 city/26 highway mpg.** The Frontier gets just 15 city/21 highway mpg.
