I owened a chevy silverado and for a single woman that was just to much truck and took up to much space and huge footprint on this earth...totally unnecessary in my book for this planet unless it is being used as a work truck..but my nissan much smaller and compact but still roomy enough for a man or woman and can be used for hauling..;.already made so many trips moving friends, dump trips, building materials...so yes if every family needs a truck do yourself a favor get one like this...has a good size engine but doesn't drink fuel like the big models, can fit four people if necessary nice computer blue tooth easy to navigate even for someone not so computer savy ...the handsfree speaker that hooks phone up always connects your phone....
With the backup camera, it is easier to park than a full-size truck, but you sit up higher than a car so still have a truck feel. It has a tonneau cover, so items can be relatively securely stored in the bed. For Interstate driving where cruise control is appropriate, it appears to have enough power to drive through mountains. The four-wheel drive is easy to turn on and off.
My new Nissan Frontier PRO 4X is great! I bought it because I also own a 2000 model I bought new over twelve years ago. It has served me well and will now serve my seventeen year old daughter well. After all she picked it out when she was five, except she wanted a lellow one (intentionally misspelled). What a wonderful vehicle Nissan has manufactured. So reliable and always looks good. Runs like there is no tomorrow. I bought exactly the same truck right down to the color because I stick with a winner. Twelve years from now when I purchace a new one it will be the same vehicle, and I'll give my 2012 to my granddaughter.
