2010 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr King Cab 4WD 6.1 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
When my teenager totaled my 2009 Frontier with less than 9000 miles on it, I didn't think twice about replacing it with the exact same spec 2010 -- even the same Radiant Silver. (He walked away with only a bruised shin after sliding into a telephone pole that totaled the vehicle. The safety features, especially the intrusion bars in the doors worked as designed. The Value Truck package is even better value on the 2010, adding the Tow Package to the deal. With the rebate, this is an incredible value for a powerful, tough 4WD truck that's well- equipped and fun to drive. The V6 is simply best-in-class, an incredibly smooth and powerful engine.
Excellent safety features are only improved for 2010 with side-curtain airbags and electronic stability control. Excellent power and performance with decent fuel economy IF you take it easy. I tow up to 5,000 lbs frequently and it tows better than the 2004 Dodge Dakota V8 that I had previously.
Complaints are minor and often noted -- short center armrest and poor stock radio (which I upgraded with aftermarket). Offer more options on the XE and SE models -- such as better radio and seats -- don't limit those to LE and PRO 4X. Finally, give us the diesel engines that you sell overseas!
