2009 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr King Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
I am quite pleased with this truck. I was open minded towards purchasing any brand and type of truck. I chose the Frontier for several reasons: Good build quality; metal where you normally see plastic and good fit. Smoothest shifting I've ever seen, especially into and out of 4WD. Name brand tires. Power; (V6) plenty of it with decent fuel economy. Not too big, not too small; perfect size for someone who doesn't live in their truck. Drives very well; confident handling and feel. Overall great truck I think. Assembled in USA. Don't be fooled, you can't have someone in the back for any long period of time in King Cab but I'm ok with that. Oil filter a little hard to get to.
Power. Utilitrack and bed liner from factory is awesome if you think you'll need it. Size is great. Fantastic transmission and 4WD shifting!
I think the Utilitrack system should come standard. Currently it is an option. At a dealership, you may have to choose a pink truck because the black one you want doesn't have the utilitrack system you are almost certainly going to use or want. Too new otherwise to complain about anything else.
