2007 Nissan Frontier Nismo 4dr King Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
Traded my truly excellent 2005 Tundra TRD 4x4 for this smaller truck. But don't let it fool you- the bed is quite nearly the same size. Acceleration is better and my max noted MPG was 21 on the hwy the other morning. Avg MPG seems to be 17.5 to 18.5. The NISMO 4x4 drives like a car- the suspension is tight and accurate, low center-of-gravity for a 4x4 but has enough clearance for most Jeep trails in TX. WAY more power than the Tacoma with more features for less money. Had a Titan before the Tundra and it was junk but Nissan has been making compacts much longer than they have been making full-sized. Give the Titan another couple years. Enjoy the Frontier today.
Back-in-the-seat power. Super-smooth 5spd auto. Excellent stock stereo. Fullsize bed. Plastic interior is easy to clean and still feels solid. Seats are good and dash is easy to use. Steering wheel audio is a life-saver. Cruise control is spot-on and never overrevs.
Change the wheels to 6-on-5 1/2 pattern. Add 1.5 inches more suspension. Rubber flooring instead of carpet on the 4x4's. Rifle rack for those of us working in the country?
