Our 2016 Midsize Pickup Challenge panel of judges had the chance to flog each of the 4x4 competitors at a private off road park just outside Ann Arbor, MI. We played in the sand, on hill climbs, over rocky trails, even playing in the mud. What we discovered surprised us.

      Frontier is the best just because of poor frontier.

      Bunch of frontier sympathizer. Go for the underdog (garbage)...Typical shit.

      You get the same bullshit from everyone about the Frontier. It's old, the interior is dated and it doesn't have a 60 inch touchscreen. Guess what??? No one complains about its off road capability nor its engine and transmission reliability. Keep your looks, your bigger touchscreen, etc. I'd rather have the bulletproof drivetrain.

      Wow what a terrible "highlight reel" .. Seems like car guys driving trucks for the 1st time. Complaining about a DIAL, the pencil neck saying "what i dont like about the frontier is its is a frontier..." You guys suck!

      Good thing there driving the cheaper mid size trucks. What are they now, a measly 38,000. That’s pennies. You know!

      I hate how they use the factory tires. Put the same tires on all the trucks and then do a test..

      They all suck. Little under powered trucks trying to be powerful..... trying to be OFF ROAD machines. These are built and sold to the public...They all suck, however...they all could be great off road trucks if equipped with after market parts that would give these economical trucks what they need. Then they would all be great. So key board monkeys.... stop bashing the other brand. We should be glad that we can go out and buy these cool little trucks! Your lucky.

      I don't think the Canyon got a fair shake here, should have tested the All Terrain version that is actually designed for light off roading like the Z71, Pro-4X, and TRD Off Road they used in the other 3 trucks that mattered.  The Honda...meh.  It's a Honda, doesn't even have 4WD, just AWD which isn't the same.
