2012 Nissan FrontierAmos Watson Jr - tampa, FL07/23/2016
Stylish, tough, comfortable, way over powered but shines in the mud because of it. City fuel economy could be better even though it's 4x4. Contra fully loaded which is great. Stylish Leatherseats and trim, sunroof, 7 blade towing package, Rockford Phosgate system, blue tooth, Bilstein shocks, Rhino lined bed, tie down railing system. 3 pros does not do this truck justice. I bought this after seeking my 4x4 lifted wrangler jk
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.
Great truck, can take a punch!
2011 Nissan FrontierGerald Smith - Marco Island, FL06/25/2015
All around great pickup truck. My boys got into a broadside collision that crushed the passenger side and spun the truck around 180 degrees. The other car was totaled. The protection of the cab and the side window airbags allowed my boys to walk away without a scratch. This truck saved their lives. After the body shop repaired/replaced the damage it again looks and drives like new. Incredible!
Nissan Frontier Overview
The Nissan Frontier is a mid-size pickup truck that, relative to a full-size truck, offers great cargo hauling and off-road capabilities, and is easy-to-drive.
Nissan Frontier History
Introduced in 1998, the Nissan Frontier is rugged, durable, and has had surprising longevity. After the second generation was introduced in 2005, more changes were made under the hood than to the frame.
How It Drives
Though the engine may have been a great choice in 2005, a 2.4L four-cylinder engine has not stood the test of time. Thankfully, with updates to more powerful engines available, any used model can be improved to suit today's standards and be more competitive against other trucks.
Used Nissan Frontier Value
The Nissan Frontier is an economic and popular choice for consumers who need towing capability regularly, but do not need the full-size pickup to do it. Due to the lack of performance updates and outdated design, the Nissan Frontier is losing ground to the likes of the Toyota Tacoma and the Chevrolet Colorado.
Nissan Frontier Standard Features
Nissan Frontier models come standard with 2.4L four-cylinder engines. For anyone seeking more towing capacity, the 3.3L V6 engine was a solid upgrade option. All-wheel drive is standard, as is automatic transmission.
