The Nissan Frontier is a full-size truck, manufactured by the leading automaker in Japan, Nissan Motors. The Nissan Frontier has long been an admired option with customers who do not require the greater hauling and towing abilities of a life-size pickup. Since introduction, the Nissan Frontier has offered V6 or four-cylinder power in a rocky yet habitable package. So far, there have been two long-running Nissan Frontier generations. The present truck is larger and more influential than the original and it could be measured more of a medium-size pickup truck than a compact truck, but either one is supposed to work out well for a wide range of customers.
The first-generation Nissan Frontier was introduced as the 1998 model year vehicle. The Nissan Frontier did not present as much variety or muscle as the existing model, but as a reasonably priced used truck, it may still be a solid option. The second generation Nissan Frontier was angular and boxy exterior and in the same way, it is utilitarian inside. At first, Nissan offered extended cab and regular cab body styles with a four-cylinder engine to get the required power of 143 HP. A V6, 3.3-liter engine was available to get the power of 170 HP as an option.
A Crew Cab model of Nissan Frontier with four doors was introduced in 2000 and it was the original such solid pickup automobile on the market. Unfortunately, the backseat of the Crew Cab was not exactly life-size, nor was its shortened bed. Nissan introduced the Desert Runner variant in 2000, combining the appearance of the all-wheel-drive Frontier with two-wheel-drive saving.
The second-generation Nissan Frontier has been introduced for the 2005 model year vehicle. Compared to the original Nissan Frontier, the second-generation vehicle offers larger dimensions, innovative interior, and exterior design and more powerful engines.
The most recent Nissan Frontier is offered in crew-cab and extended cab body styles. The Nissan Frontier comes in four trim levels, such as S, SV, Pro-4X, and Sl. Among these trims, model S is considered an economical version and the SV model is the better-appointed version. The Pro-4X model of the Nissan Frontier is considered a rugged vehicle, whereas its Sl model is considered the top-of-the-line that comes only in crew cab body style. There is as well, a Desert Runner package accessible for rear-wheel drive models of Frontier that offers the Bilstein shock absorbers and some harder styling elements stimulated by the four-wheel drive only Pro-4X.
The extended-cab SV and S trim levels of the Frontier come with a four-cylinder, 2.5-liter engine that offers the vehicles a maximum power of 152 HP. These models come with the standard five-paced manual transmission and the five-speed automatic transmission is offered as an option. A strong V6, 4.0-liter engine offers the vehicle the maximum power of 261 HP is standard on the Pro-4X model and all crew cabs. It is an option, as well, on the SV comprehensive cab.
The Nissan Frontier impresses most buyers from its rugged abilities and simple-to-drive nature. The Nissan Frontier feels extra maneuverable than its boxy design and everyday reason would suggest, and the elective V6 engine offers acceleration sensibly quick. The downsides of the current Nissan Frontier comprise uncomfortable back seats and the lack of a standard-cab body design. Overall, the Nissan Frontier is a highly recommended vehicle to those who need the pickup functionality in a sensibly sized package.
