NISSAN Frontier,

Overview

The Nissan Frontier is a midsize truck offered in two body styles (extended cab or four-door crew cab) and with 5-foot and 6.1-foot bed lengths. Two engines are available: a 2.5-liter four-cylinder (152 horsepower, 171 pound-feet of torque) or a 4.0-liter six-cylinder (261-hp, 281 lb-ft). Both can pair to either a manual transmission (five speeds for the four-cylinder or six for the V6) or a five-speed automatic transmission.

Inside

The interior layout is easy to navigate due to the physical controls. No touchscreen menu-diving. Wide-opening doors and well-placed hand- and footholds make it easy to get in and out. The seat height is fixed, and there's a minimum of seat adjustment. The Frontier provides good visibility, comfort, and a feeling of confidence and control. The cabin is roomy, at least up front. There's suitable elbow room between front passengers and door panels. Its robust frame and suspension and plastic interior encourage heavy use and enjoyment.

Driving

    The Frontier's 261 horsepower is lowest in class, but the stout 281 lb-ft of torque makes up for it. The 4.0-liter V6 engine feels very responsive and it generates power with minimal pedal effort. The Frontier posted a 0-60 mph time of 8 seconds. The brakes engage smoothly and slow the truck easily in everyday driving. The Frontier's steering is loose and sloppy, with a lot of steering wheel free play. The Frontier is compact and stable when going around turns. Its five-speed transmission seems ancient, but long gear ratios suit this engine well. The quick throttle response might be too quick for some drivers.
