2007 Nissan Frontier XE 4dr King Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.5L 4cyl 5A)
OK like Thomas the tank engine, it's useful for most needs of the average household! I bought this truck after repairing a customers SE in the Body Shop and was blown away with the 4cly performance. It handles a yard and a half of mulch with no strain, is well as several trips of 12 bags of leaves to the dump with the bed extender used, commuting 50 miles a day for work getting 22.7 mpg! Savings on the same range traveled with my prior 06 F150 is 6 gallons a fill, that's over $600.a year saved based on 2.75 a gallon-WOW! Mine came with the "old man"(grin-see other post!)options: A/Trans, power windows, door locks, sliding back glass, bedliner, bedextender, CD player-Great Truck!
It's done everything that my F150 did, even tows a utility trailer without straining. The brakes are great-4wheel disc. The 4dr cab isn't available on Ranger in its 4cly model.The rear seats fold up to allow putting groceries inside the cab. Did good in the snow for a 2WD truck.
Hmm. How about putting limited slip as an option? Maybe a tighter radius steering rack as well. Oh the other idea maybe balance the tailgate so it doesn't feel as heavy on lifting it!
