2007 Nissan Frontier LE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
The crew cab LWB model has a somewhat long turning radius but it also has all the interior seating room you would want without any loss of bed space. The roof rack, flip up rear seats, spray-in liner, tie-down system locking tailgate and other features beat the competition. The truck has lots of power and yet has a quiet ride. The ride is nice and the seating position is preferable to the Tacoma. Gas mileage in the first 3 tanks has ranged from 17.5 to over 20 mpg in mixed driving, assuming that you don't get your foot into it too much. Gas mileage seems to be improving as the miles add up.
Roof rack, spray-in liner, tie-down system, locking tailgate, nice ride, lots of power. The LE Frontier comes with many additional features and is a few thousand less than a Tacoma TRD. Both are great trucks but the Frontier seems to be a better value.
Turning radius is a little long with the LWB model but is easy to adjust to. The paint seems a little soft and is easy to scratch compared to vehicles I owned in the past. This seems to be a common problem with many new vehicles.
