Why? Both employ a V6 with less total output and capability than the 2.3T, get worse mileage and still can't tow as much and have lower cargo capacities. Not to mention that Toyota still thinks drum brakes are acceptable in a modern pickup truck and Nissan hasn't updated the Frontier since Bush II was in office.

I'm assuming it's a pride issue then? 🤷‍♂️
A pride issue? You know what they say about making assumptions...

Try the lack of port injection. I own a 2020 Ranger and have had nothing but good experiences. Doesn't mean I'm not concerned about the 2.3L longterm.

Asking a question is not an assumption. 🙄

However, if you're suggesting that port injection is superior to direct injection, well that explains why you're okay with purchasing a new truck in the 21st century that still uses drum brakes yet costs over $40,000. Enjoy your Taco.

You literally said yourself you are making an assumption.

I can upgrade the brakes on a tacoma with ease, can you add port injection to the 2.3l easily?
