When you’re looking at both the 2018 Ford F-150 and a 2018 Nissan Frontier, you are looking at two great trucks, and they are both great options for any truck buyer. While the 2018 Nissan Frontier has many similarities to the 2018 Ford F-150, you’ll find that the 2018 Ford F-150 is the clear winner. Here’s why.

Why Choose the 2018 Ford F-150 Over a 2018 Nissan Frontier

Ratings and awards

Motor Trend’s 2018 Truck of the Year is no other than the 2018 Ford F-150. The road test editor of Motor Trend said, “It was a pretty resounding win. Nothing really came close,” about the 2018 Ford F-150. The 2018 Ford F-150 killed the competition, due to the luxury interiors, infotainment system upgrades, top-of-the-line structure, and improved driveability.

As for the 2018 Nissan Frontier, Motor Trend gives it a low two out of five stars. The positives of the 2018 Nissan Frontier, according to Motor Trend, include an affordable starting price and rugged body-on-frame construction, but the 2018 Nissan Frontier lacks driver assisting safety features and has a small display screen with little technology.


The 2018 Ford F-150 has set itself apart from both previous Ford F-150s and other trucks in its class with the complete overhaul of its body’s material. The new Ford F-150 boasts of a high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy that is the same grade as the 6000-series used in large military and industrial applications. It is not heavy and bulky, but lightweight, yet stronger than ever.

While the 2018 Nissan Frontier is stylish, its focus is on affordability, so the 2018 Ford F-150 completely knocks it out of the park when it comes to body quality.

Interior features

The 2018 Ford F-150 has a great interior that boosts the overall comfortable and enjoyability during every ride, like the two LCD monitors in front, sync voice activated systems, leather seats, auto start-stop technology, a rear view camera, power windows and locks, cruise control, mp3 capable cd player, steering wheel audio controls, and more.

The 2018 Nissan Frontier has a basic interior that is also highly focused on affordability. The 2018 Nissan Frontier comes with a backup camera, a 5-inch stereo display, bluetooth technology, and cruise control.


The 2018 Ford F-150 is at the top of its class in safety, too, and has earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Our top-of-the-line truck comes with a number of great safety features, including its dynamic hitch assist backup camera, side impact beams, low tire pressure warning, dual stage airbags, front anti-roll bar, maintenance-free battery with run-down protection, and more. A new Ford F-150 is one of the safest trucks on the market – great for both families and commercial use.

Unfortunately, the 2018 Nissan Frontier hasn’t received very good safety ratings. The 2018 Nissan Frontier has only earned three out of five stars in frontal crash protection and three out of four stars in rollover tests, according to the NHTSA.

Fuel efficiency

Even though the 2018 Ford F-150 is known for its strength and power, it beats out the 2018 Nissan Frontier when it comes to fuel efficiency. You’ll see the 2018 Ford F-150 get 25 MPG on the highway and 20 MPG in the city.

The Nissan Frontier gets 22 MPG on the highway and 16 MPG in the city with its six-speed manual transmission, and it gets 23 MPG on the highway and 16 MPG in the city with its five-speed automatic transmission.
