Nissan Frontier Overview

Nissan's latest pickup, the Nissan Frontier, has been popular with consumers thanks to its reasonable size, versatile capabilities, various nissan frontier accessories and generally affordable price. There have been two generations of the Nissan Frontier. The current truck is bigger and more powerful than the original and could be considered more of a midsize pickup rather than a compact. Thanks to its rugged nature and wide range of body styles and options, it's well suited for a broad spectrum of consumers. The Frontier feels considerably more maneuverable than its boxy styling and workaday purpose would suggest, and acceleration is quite brisk with the optional V6 engine. The ride is firm especially with the optional off-road package. However low grade interior plastics are a lack.
