2005 Nissan Frontier 4dr King Cab Nismo Rwd SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I have beaten the heck out of this truck on many rough and desolate west Texas roads. The truck performs flawlessly. Its locking rear differential gets me in and out of situations normally reserved for 4WD vehicles. Whether cruising 85+ mph on the interstate or slowly clawing through a dry wash, this truck is amazing. It is absolutely the finest truck I have ever owned. You can spend a heck of a lot more for other makes without coming close to the value this truck offers. It is exceptional in appearance, features and performance. Do yourself a favor if you are in the market for a truck. Test drive a Nissan NISMO. You will be amazed by Nissan engineering. I am. Thanks...

Best Features

Locking rear differential. Beefy 265hp fuel-injected V6 engine. Smooth quiet ride on both high speed interstate or low speed secondary road. Steering wheel mounted stereo and cruise control systems. Full complement of properly positioned gauges. OEM security system. 6 disc CD changer.

Worst Features

Dash light dimmer control does not allow low enough setting for comfortable long distance night driving. Driver side armrest mounted window and door lock controls are confusing. Driver's seat adjustments are quirky and often difficult. Seat belts tend to tangle requiring some exertion to undo.
