I'm considering the purchase a newer preowned truck next year. My main uses will be towing my 3000lb boat w/ the family. I currently have two car seats so a crew cab is a must have. I drove a new Frontier SV 4x4. I drove better than I expected and didn't have any qualms with it. I liked it and its road manners. I drove a new Tacoma as well and preferred the Frontier. I was quoted 27k OTD for the Frontier, and 32K OTD for the Tacoma. Both were cramped with the car seats that I carried around to stick in the trucks during the test drives. The Tacoma had a nicer interior and s neat slow drop lift gate. I then drove a Ram 1500 classic crew cab w/ Pentstar v6, 4x4. It's longer, wider, tows slightly more, gets better gas mileage. Under the hood was roomy with ample space to work on in the future. I've located a few 2019 Ram 1500 classics, 4x4, V6, with under 20k miles for $22k-23k, which is the SAME price as a slightly used Frontier. With that said, my focus and research has shifted to the Ram as it is a better value on paper. Anyone have first hand experience with the Pentstar platform and ZF 8 speed? I'll be keeping this truck for 10+ years.
