Traded my F150 for the Frontier due to size considerations. I just don't need a full size truck 365 days a year. Maybe twice a year but that's about it.
I have about 1500 miles on the Fronty, like the size, styling and acceleration. MPG is only about 16.5 mpg with 75% highway driving. So it's averaging about 1.5 less than my 2wd F150 with a V6. But the engine is still breaking in so hopefully the mileage will increase.
More engine noise in the cabin than the F150 but it's not bad.
F150 seats were/are way better than the Frontier. The Frontier seats need more thigh support and longer seat bottom.

Purchased our Frontier about a week ago. Very pleased so far. Ours also has the Value package which includes the bed track system, backup camera and automatic a/c.
V6 is smooth and powerful, with excellent acceleration. Interior is comfortable, and feels roomier than the new Colorado. Materials are nice and have quality feel. We like the fold up rear seats, which provide a flat floor with the removable storage bins. Storage in the backseat of the Colorado is not removable.
Utility track system is well designed and included spray on bed liner-an excellent value.
Comparably equipped Chevy would be much more expensive, and the Frontier has a proven record of reliability.
