The Nissan Frontier has long been a popular choice with consumers who don't need the greater towing and hauling abilities of a full-size pickup. Since its debut, the Frontier has offered multiple cab configurations and both four-cylinder and V6 engines, with availability varying from year to year. Modern Nissan Frontiers are bigger and more powerful than the early versions, and this Nissan has evolved into more of a midsize pickup than a compact truck.
In reviews of the Nissan Frontier, we've been impressed by its rugged capabilities and easy-to-drive nature. It has never been the roomiest or the most refined truck out there, but we'd recommend the Frontier to anyone wanting either a simple work truck or an off-road toy in a reasonably sized package.
