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!
2012 Nissan FrontierMike - Kansas City, MO09/09/2014
I purchased the truck primarily for it's towing capacity. I bought a new 30ft travel trailer weighing almost 6000 lbs. The Frontier was the perfect choice. Options with a greater towing capacity were several thousands more. The Frontier offered all the upgrades/options I was looking for without the higher pricetag.
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....
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.
Some of the best compact SUVs today are efficient, with good power and handy features like a turbocharged engine, all-wheel drive, and even third-row seats. Check out this top 10 list, based on CarMax sales data from January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017.
