2006 Nissan Frontier Nismo 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


I love this truck! The six-speed transmission feels good and the engine gets wound up quick. A K&N kit gave the V6 a deeper note that sounds awesome. The exterior looks like a functional truck, not some toy. There's just the right amount of chrome. The wheels look good. The seats are comfortable and the ride is smooth enough for long highway rides, even with the stiffer Nismo suspension. Dash layout is intuitive, although they could have done with a few less buttons on the radio. Overall, it's just a really nice-looking, well-powered, functional midsize truck. You can't beat it.

Best Features

Engine note, Sirius radio, acceleration, reliability.

Worst Features

"Rear seats" are as useless in 2006 model as they were in a 1991 Nissan King Cab I used to drive, but I guess that's what you get with the King Cab instead of the Crew Cab. Gas mileage is disappointing for a midsize truck. Other than that, no complaints.
