Not the best in any category, mpg sucks, and looks dated. But they are cheap and current incentives I see from manufacturer web is 1,500 cash back plus another 1,000 cash back for V6 models.
I’m in the market for a cheap, small pickup truck to haul around fitness stuff and furniture. Fuel don’t matter cause it’s all local driving and don’t care about fancy features. Came down to Tacoma v. Frontier, but most internet forums hate the Frontier. And here – we don’t have much info on Frontiers.
Getting MF, RV would be awesome for 91107. Wondering if these are even relevant and are seriously being leased these days? I would love a $0 down with my monthly payment at $249 or less, that’s my budget.
understood. value is the key word - not to be mistaken by cheaper. Ultimately the monthly payment u pay each month is what matters most for leasing. So w/ Frontier, the monthly payment is significantly less than Tacoma. That’s just a fact. But you’re correct – the value isn’t there due to Frontier being more inferior in every way possible.
For my budget – Zip 91107 w/ Toyota Tacoma’s MF .00235 and RV 72% on base engine 4x2 double cab – the numbers just don’t add up esp considering my region. I need a small basic pickup for under $249/mo with tax. Just can’t see that w/ Tacoma. Or as you veteran hackrs always say here non-stop: “These newbies are looking for unicorn once in a lifetime deals.”
You’re not looking hard enough; there are multiple marketplace threads that have Tacoma SRs in your price range. Cursory glance at the edmunds forums have the RV for Frontiers pegged in the high 50s / low 60s with a higher money factors, so unless you get a very steep discount you won’t be able to beat the monthly payment on a Tacoma.
Also you said you want a basic pickup truck but also you want a double cab? Why the double cab if you’re just going to be hauling around fitness stuff / furniture?
