The Differences Between The 2020 Nissan Frontier & 2020 Honda Ridgeline

The Differences Between The 2020 Nissan Frontier Against The Competition View Frontier Inventory

Are you ready to explore the greater New Orleans area in a vehicle that offers superior power and capability? Then you should check out the new Nissan pickup trucks for sale, now available at our local Premier Nissan of Metairie dealership near Kenner, Louisiana. The team at Nissan has created a line of improved pickup trucks that work smart but play harder. Nothing will help you take on the roadway like driving around in the updated and upgraded 2020 Nissan Frontier.

The 2020 Nissan Frontier pickup comes with an all-new, 310-hp 3.8L V6 engine and smooth new 9-speed automatic transmission for enhanced all-around performance. But how do you know if the new Frontier is the right pick for you? Let's compare it to one of its biggest rivals: the Honda Ridgeline.

Comparing The New 2020 Nissan Frontier Against The Honda Ridgeline

When you get behind the wheel of the 2020 Nissan Frontier, it's easy to see why this mid-size pickup truck stands out. With a rugged design and a variety of accessories, the Nissan Frontier is ready for any adventure. We at Premier Nissan of Metairie have compared the specs, safety technologies, and performance features between the Frontier and Ridgeline pickup trucks, allowing you to pick the best model for your lifestyle.

For greater power and handling ability, the 2020 Nissan Frontier is what you'll want, as it packs a potent 310 hp. Unfortunately, the Ridgeline's V6 only generates 280 hp. When it comes to agile performance, the Frontier also impresses with its tight 43.33 foot turning circle -- or 1.1 feet better than the Ridgeline. Giving you superior handling in tight spaces and traffic is one of the many things the new Frontier does so well.

If you are looking for a mid-size pickup truck with excellent towing capacity, you'll love that the new Frontier's maximum standard towing capacity is much higher than the Ridgeline. It can now tow nearly 2,000 pounds more than the Ridgeline when properly equipped, making hauling your equipment to the job site so much easier.
