Though they’re not in the same class, the Nissan Frontier and Jeep Renegade are often compared by shoppers. On some level, both offer versatility you won’t find in a coupe or sedan, and both the Frontier and Renegade are among the most affordable vehicles in their class. Nevertheless, there are a few areas where the Frontier stands out.
Let’s compare the 2017 Frontier Crew Cab S (2WD) to the 2017 Renegade Sport (2WD).
Under the Hood. When choosing the standard Crew Cab, the Frontier has a 4.0-liter V6 engine that’s paired with an optional five-speed automatic transmission. The engine generates up to 261 horsepower and up to 281 lb-ft of torque, offering performance and capabilities you won’t find in the Renegade. That’s because the standard Sport trim only gets up to 160 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque with a 1.4-liter MultiAir® Turbo engine.
Technologies. In addition to less performance, the Renegade also has fewer standard tech features. On the Sport trim, you get four speakers, USB and AUX input, and a radio. That’s pretty sparse, which means you’ll have to pay extra for more than just the basics.
The standard Frontier Crew Cab, though, comes with a 5.0-inch color display, Bluetooth®, Siri® Eyes Free, power outlets, six speakers, a USB and AUX input, and a hands-free text messaging assistant.
