I recently got a 2009 Tacoma back in February. I test drove both the 2009 4×4 fully loaded Frontier, and Tacoma. While the Frontier has over 20 more horse power, the Tacoma still accelerated faster, stronger, and smoother. To me it was a no brainer, the Tacoma. However, I still found the Frontier to be a very nice truck, and I have even heard some reviews that claim it’s performance to be superior to the Tacoma, on and off-road. I have yet to test it off road, it’s still too fresh. But MAJORITY of the reviews say the Tacoma is better on and off road, just a few prefer the Frontier. Tacoma won the award of "best value for mid-size truck", but that doesn’t really mean shit. ANYONE WITH A 09 FRONTIER? 09 TACOMA? WHAT U THINK! BE SPECIFIC. TEN POINTS TO BEST.
