2005 Nissan Frontier 4dr King Cab SE Rwd SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
Previous truck was a 2004 Dodge Dakota with 4.7L/automatic. This combination turned out to be a very poor choice for towing anything! Transmission was the problem as it was constantly gear hunting! My Frontier has the very powerful 4.0L/six speed manual combination. It tows my 3600lb boat/trailer easily and when towing my motorcycles I don't even feel the weight I'm towing (approximately 2200lbs.) I have owned many pickups. So far, this is the best of them all.
The 4.0L engine and 6 speed manual transmission have really pleased me. LOTS of power and good fuel economy.
Interior looks very plain. Door panels are molded plastic with nothing to dress them up. Very functional but could use a little dressing up.
